Monster Hunter Generations has a lot of DLC on the way, all of it free into early 2017. The August batch is now available to download, and it's got some rather fun outfits and more to collect.
There's a lot on offer, with three Nintendo franchises included in addition to some sporty efforts no doubt produced to tie-in with the Olympic Games.
First off there are eight regular quests, the majority of which are High level - so you have to really earn them. Highlights include Varia and Zero Suits, along with Okami and Olympic themed outfits for both hunters and Palicoes.
Four Prowler Quests (three High, one Low level) unlock the rather neat The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker outfit set, along with some Animal Crossing goodies.
There are some other extras, but if nothing else you should speak to your housekeeper and select 'claim items', as the following Support Pack has a lot of useful resources.
30x Energy Drink
10x Max Potion
5x Health Flute
5x Demon Flute
5x Armor Flute
20x Hunter's Drink
20x Barrel Bomb L+
Check out the comprehensive list of quest names and so on via the Capcom Unity link below - are you going to try and earn all of these outfits?
When is the next Direct, do you guys think?
Weren't the Samus and Animal Crossing ones in MH4 as well?
Because of Prowler I can actually PLAY as Isabelle this time around! Plus the UNIQLO cat outfit is so adorable. Just wish there was a fashion gear option like Xenoblade X which would let me use sets like these End Game but oh well they're fun to make and Wear for fun.
Okami is good, but Strider is better--hurry up, Capcom!
@Phil_Kavadias NX says hello.
Ugh why does the Okami DLC have to be uber high level? I'm still a total newbie and I'd get creamed if I attempted that. I haven't even unlocked high quests yet.
I'm all on that item pack
I'll probably be able to finally get this game today so the release of this DLC is very nice, being able to play as Isabelle will be great.
So I see the Varia and Zero suits are returning from MH4U. Does this mean the Link gear for the hunter will return as well?
Never got around to getting them in the 4U, but I wanted them sooo badly, so I hope it's for real...
I'm so torn about getting this game. I tried monster hunter tri and just couldn't get into it. Generations sounds so good but the learning curve is always off-putting with this series. I just can't decide to take the plunge or not.
Holy crap, I would never expect a Yowamushi Pedal outfit. That is awesome!
@Mr_Zurkon It's definitely worth it once things start clicking, but yeah, you have to be pretty commited to breaking through that barrier of entry.
Definitely possible doing it on your own, but having an experienced/high level friend walking you through some of the complicated parts helps (heck, co-op is highly encouraged).
If it also helps, Generations seems to be the most newbie friendly out of all of them so far. I dont know what was up with Tri, but I think a lot of new folks were turned off by it's slow start (the demo didnt help much, either).
@Mr_Zurkon MH4U is a great starting point for newbies. I know because I also started with it. It's learning curve is very gradual. MHGens has some improvements over MH4U, and it seems good too for newbies. Note though that MH4U lets you start tackling larger monsters sooner though, while MHGens makes you kill a bunch of small fry first, which can be annoying.
P.S. I'm soloing everything. No troubles yet.
@DTFaux @freelance Thanks for the info guys. I think I'll take the plunge with Generations then.
@Mr_Zurkon there are a lot of people who can assist you online. Personally I love the game and would offer any assistance to you that I can provide.
@Jimmy_G_Buckets thanks Jimmy I may do that once I get started.
I was listening to 8-4's podcast and they mentioned how good the Monster Hunter community is and how willing it is to help newcomers. That is a big draw to me to since far too many communities are toxic.
@Mr_Zurkon Um, not everyone is helpful. MH is also well known for their elitist community where they kick anyone out who isn't using the skills/equips they think is optimal, and some of them even hate cats so if you're a cute kitteh, they may kick you just because you are one.
@Mr_Zurkon @DTFaux Monster Hunter is definitely a commitment. I tried MH3U and hated it...it was overwhelming and I gave up about 12 hours in during the 1st water battles. I gave MH4U another chance after reading a ton of reviews and it was way more accessible and held your hand much more early in the game.
I think the biggest thing when starting out and part of the reason I struggled was I picked the wrong weapon. My skill level was poor and I was using dual blades which are pretty weak, then I tried the hammer which is powerful but very slow and I was fainting all the time. I made the switch for MH4U to the Great Sword to start and it was so much better. Now I mainly use the Switch Axe but I'll use the Great Sword from time to time, and my skill level has improved so I throw in the hammer once in awhile to keep things fresh.
I highly recommend grinding through the first 10 hours, figure out what weapon(s) you like, hitting the internet for tutorials and videos as you come across things you don't understand. Once you start carving up monsters and building that set of armor or weapon you had your eye on you'll understand perfectly what we are all talking about!
Or you can just be a cute kitteh!! I am
No Hero-King armor?
Jeebus, this all pretty far into high rank. Seems weird that they would put such high-level content out so quickly, especially considering the July content wasn't too high.
@Freelance That's a bummer if that's happened to you, but in probably around 1000 hours played between Tri and Generations, I can count on one hand how many rude/inconsiderate people I've played with. Just continue being part of the solution and hopefully your luck improves with other players!
@ericiidx Uh, no, I don't play online.
I'm talking in general. I also go to GFAQs, and I see lots of posts from people, or about people, who are elitist jerks. Seems to happen a lot in the MH community. Sure, there are probably lots of nice people, but there's a lot of elitistism(sp?) too, based on what I've read over the years.
I've been finding this game very very hard to get into and I loved MH4U. I'm at 5 star village and haven't touched it in days.
I still haven't beat MH4U. But I made a promise to myself that I would beat a game before playing it's prequel or sequel...
Can male hunters wear that Samus outfit?
I find MHG too be a little more lacking than MH4U was too be perfectly honest.
There's alot less Story than the last one, no G Rank & it just seems like there's less Hub's & Extra's this time around too.
I don't know, can anyone here prove me wrong on this please?
