In addition to the previously announced Chameleos and Apex Rathalos, several new Monsters were confirmed for Update 2.0.

Once you unlock your Hunter Rank cap, you will be able to forge layered armor at the Smithy with Outfit Vouchers and Material Types! We can finally wear the Mizutsune armor without thinking about its (sadly) disappointing skills.
We will definitely be looking out for the most efficient way to farm Outfit Vouchers, so stay tuned for that!
Special Layered Armor will also be available for free for players who also have a save file for Monster Hunter Stories 2, to be released on July 9th!
Finally, we'll be able to fight Apex Monsters outside of Rampages! With the introduction of Apex Rathalos and Apex Diablos, we can expect at least five new quests with focus on hunting the Apex Monsters (the three others being Apex Arzuros, Apex Mizutsune, and Apex Rathian).
In addition to the current Arena Quests 1 through 5, additional Arena Quests with more than one Monster will be added.
For those who enjoyed the Arena Quest #5 against Rajang, get ready for the new Arena Quest with both Magnamalo and Rajang!
There are going to be new, free Event Quests as well! These Event Quests can be played offline, however many times you want.
There are also going to be Event Quests that are going to give out new gestures, stickers, and maybe even armor pieces once you complete them, so we'll be looking out for those!

Once Update 2.0.0 goes live, hunters will have the ability to unlock their Hunter Rank depending on their progress with Hub Quests. Once the cap is unlocked, hunters will earn Hunter Rank Points everytime they complete quests.
The quests that come with Update 2.0.0 will be hidden behind specific Hunter Ranks. This means that hunters must reach a specific Hunter Rank first before the new quests appear on their respective quest lists.
Special Layered Armor will also be available for free for players who also have a save file for Monster Hunter Stories 2!
Update 2.0 introduces a good amount of new monsters for Monster Hunter Rise. Naturally, this means new equipment for hunters as well!
Here are the new weapons and armor that are confirmed to arrive with Update 2.0:
|Kushala Daora Weapons and Armor|
|Chameleos Weapons and Armor|
|Teostra Weapons and Armor|
In addition to the main features confirmed in the livestream, a host of other features were also listed up. The full details can be confirmed in the patch notes for Update 2.0.
Update 2.0 has been confirmed to feature new weapon trees, armor, petalaces, items, and most exciting of all, decorations! Here's hoping for that Weakness Exploit deco to drop.
The Level Cap for Palicos and Palamutes will be raised to 50 from the current 35. Based on this number, we can even make a tentative guess that we'll see about two-thirds of the size of the current game worth of new content in the Update!
Hope you've finished the current Awards already, as a new batch of Guild Card Awards will be available in Update 2.0!
For all those who were unhappy with their character's design, suffer no more! Character Edit Vouchers will be available to change your character's appearance.
They are listed to be available from the Nintendo eShop, and your first voucher is free to download. After that point, it's likely that Character Edit Vouchers will be available for purchase only.
The Version 2.0 update was also confirmed to come at around 0.9GB (900MB)! This is pretty hefty for an update so expect a lot more content when the full Update drops.
