Monster Hunter Uday Getting its first free update in April. This will add new monsters to the newly released game, as well as undeclared features.
Released over the weekend to critical acclaim, Monster Hunter Uday Is the latest installment of the popular action RPG series. The game has already shipped more than four million units and now Capcom is poised to capitalize with two new updates.
The free version 2.0 will be available sometime in late April. The main drawback of the update is that it adds two major monsters to the game: Returning Chameleon and Apex Rathloss. The latter will be part of a rampage hunt, which is a new tower defense-type feature in the game.

Capcom says that “additional monsters” will be available in the update. Version 2.0 includes a “Hunter Rank” cap and “some other related features”.
Looking ahead, Studio is already rolling out updates after 2.0. Version 3.0 does not have a release window, but Capcom says it will bring even more monsters to the game. More specifically, a future update will add a new ending to the game.
Both updates will be free to all players, as has been the case with previous Monster Hunter games. The game features a feature DLC, although it is strictly for items and cosmetics.
Monster Hunter Uday Now available for the Nintendo Switch. In our review, we said: “Post-game updates will ultimately decide whether it’s a definitive classic or simply a solid move to something bigger, but even at launch, Monster Hunter has never felt better.”
