Monster Hunter Generations has launched in North America and Europe, with Capcom revealing some new information. This includes information on how the costume DLCs will be obtained, as well as how to obtain a new starter pack that was made available alongside the game’s launch. The starter pack is a free download containing potions, traps, and more useful goodies to get players straight into the hunt. The press release says Capcom-Unity.com has info on how to obtain the pack, but that seems not to be true…
Capcom’s press release also announces that they will be supporting the game on the first Friday of every month. On these days, they will release new downloadable quests that will provide new challenges to hunters. These monthly updates will also be how players will obtain the DLC costumes we’ve already seen teasers for. They include themed costumes from famous games such as The Legend of Zelda, Okami, Fire Emblem, and more.

About Monster Hunter Generations
Monster Hunter Generations is the most customizable entry in the popular Monster Hunter action RPG series, which has sold more than 36 million units worldwide to date. New gameplay mechanics have been introduced, including Hunting Styles and Hunter Arts, which allow for a very unique, personalized playstyle. Attack from above using the Aerial style, perform powerful, well-timed counterattacks using the Adept Style, and more. Combat looks even more impressive with the addition of Hunter Arts, a mix of devastating attacks, indispensable field skills and power-ups, which hunters using any style or weapon can equip.
At the start of their journey, players will join the Wycademy, a group that specializes in researching and studying monsters. As hunters climb the ranks and take down some of the more dangerous threats, players will soon need to defend each of the game’s four villages periled by major new menaces known collectively as the Fated Four.
With hundreds of quests in store that yield valuable resources used for weapons and equipment, there are hundreds of challenges to tackle in the solo adventure, plus tons of co-op multiplayer quests via local or online play with up to three other hunters. Previously only available as custom support AI partners called “Palicoes,” Felynes are also now playable in “Prowler” mode with their own questlines and rewards, unique gameplay mechanics and gear.
