Demo Basic Information

Demo 2

Start Time March 12th, 1 AM GMT
End Time Unknown
Limitations Only 30 plays available

Get your weapons ready, hunters! Demo 2 is here with the flagship monster, Magnamalo! Demo 2 will also refresh your 30 plays from before, so don't worry about having to jump hoops just to play more.

Demo 1

Start Time January 8th, 8:00 AM GMT
End Time February 1st, 8:00 AM GMT
Limitations Only 30 plays available

Demo 1 was available for a longer period than previous Demos, but it comes with a catch—only 30 total plays of the main two Quests, the Great Izuchi and Mizutsune Quests, are available.

Once players have hit 30 plays, they'll be locked out of all five Quests, so they'll need to make every play count.

Demo 2 Quests

All Five Demo 2 Quests.png

There are a total of five quests that can be played in Demo 2: two tutorial missions and three full hunts. Remember, you can only play a total of 30 times of the three full hunts before it locks you out of all five, but it's possible to bypass the demo limit if this becomes an issue.

    • Give us the ability to change our layered armor display. What I mean is, ya know how armor looks different on the male and female models? well, I wish there was the ability to change the appearance from the male models of armor, to the female models, and the reverse without changing the gender of your character itself. This would be really nice, as imo some armor pieces look better as the male model version.
