Capcom has just revealed their first big update that will be coming to the acclaimed hit, Monster Hunter World. This update will be heading to the game later this month and will be free to all players, which will also introduce the much-anticipated beast, Deviljho. The update also contains several other major changes.
The massive monster Deviljho has previously appeared in other games in the Monster Hunter series. Fans of the game have been eagerly waiting for its release even before Monster Hunter World’s launch. The free update will allow players to use materials that they will be getting from the monster to craft two armor sets, Vangis α and Vangis β.
Capcom detailed in their blog that a new “entry” will be available for all 14 weapon types, which will include new designs for the Hunting Horn, Sword and Shield, Bow, Insect Glaive, and Charge Blade. Additionally, the update will bring changes that would balance all weapon types, especially melee weapons.
Capcom is also fixing the issue regarding online griefing, in which some players prevent their teammates from carving. The update will address this concern by restricting allies to interrupt the carving animation and will give players the ability to become immune to all hit reactions during carving until a quest is complete. Furthermore, the patch will also add an option to the “Select Return Destination” after completing a quest that allows players to Return to the Gathering Hub in single-player mode, or to disband from a group and return to the Gathering Hub in multiplayer mode.
Capcom will also hand out a free Character Edit Voucher on March 16 before the update is released. The voucher lets players modify their character’s physical appearance and gender. However, this will only not be available to use on your Palico. Furthermore, the voucher will be a one-use item and will not let players change the names of their characters or Palicoes.
Lastly, Capcom revealed the details on Mega Man’s crossover gear in Monster Hunter World, which will be available via a quest from April 13-27, and the winner of the weapon design contest, which will be available starting April 6.
