Monster Hunter Stories 2

Monster Hunter Stories 2 Update 2 is about to launch tomorrow, and in it players will be able to face a co-op quest exclusive monster, along with two new monsties. It's all part of a fairly comprehensive post-launch update roadmap, where players can currently expect five free title updates going through October 2021.

There are also a few bug fixes includes in the patch, where a Monstie out in the field that have been given gene that boosts attack power of one of the elements would change color depending on the Monstie's elemental values. While pretty funky, this has been fixed up.

What's in Monster Hunter Stories 2 Update 2?

Players will be able to face off against the gilded Elder Dragon Kulve Taroth as a new co-op quest that players can tackle together. While the Kulve Taroth won't be a ridable Monstie, the materials earned from the quest will help players craft new equipment. The two new monsties that players can get are the Hellbade Glavenus and the Boltreaver Astalos. Apparently the Hellblade Glavenus can melt solid rock and their tailblades can cut through mountains with hot knives, so players will have to be careful. The Boltreaver Astalos can unleash electric bolts "as blue as the sky", which I'm sure players will find very shocking as well.
