Capcom also revealed the roadmap for the game, as per which the free Title Update 3 will come in early September with new Monsties Elderfrost Gammoth, Soulseer Mizutsune and Oroshi Kirin. In late September, Title Update 4 will be released which comes with Monsties Dreadking Rathalos, Molten Tigrex and the co-op special Kulve Taroth. October will see the launch of Title Update 5 and will add another high-difficulty co-op monster to the game.
