Co-developed by Tencent Games and Capcom using CryEngine, and exclusive to China, Monster Hunter Online is getting a major update next week. Tigrex, a Flying Wyvern type which first appeared in Monster Hunter Freedom 2, will be making its online debut as the new boss monster. Its trademark attacks, such as the devastating roars and tail swipes, remain intact to challenge players.
Also making its debut is the Lance weapon for players. With both high attack and high defence, this is the perfect weapon for even the new players to the Monster Hunter game. Of course, carrying both the weapon and shield will see characters moving much slower. Blocking attacks is the key to survival. The different attack patterns, such as forward stab and charging attack, are carried over.
Capcom confirmed it will hold a live music concert in China on 19 March (Shanghai) and 26 March (Beijing), with the most expensive ticket costing around USD 92.00. The live concert will feature music from Capcom games such as Monster Hunter, Street Fighter, Devil May Cry, Rockman, Phoenix Wright, and more. Performers include Shota Nakama, Masato Itoh, Ingrid Gerdes, and many more.
