Four monsters are confirmed to ship with Free Title Update 1. Gold Rathian and Silver Rathalos are slated to release alongside Lucent Nargacuga and Seething Bazelgeuse. Players can expect them at the upcoming new biome: Forlorn Arena.

Qurious Crafting

Qurious Crafting is arguably the biggest thing to expect from this digital event. Players can soon augment their weapons and armor further by using specific Afflicted Materials on them through Qurious Crafting. This is an endgame feature that is similar to Weapon and Armor Augments in Monster Hunter World, but taken up a notch as the upgrade choices seem to be more impactful — Capcom has revealed that you can even add more skills to armor pieces!
