Capcom is planning on several additional content drops after the game launches, including free title updates and new monsters such as Deviljho, which will be available this spring. They have announced that a third beta will go live from January 19-22 so that they can further test the game and make sure it is in the best possible form before launch. The experience mirrors that of the game, where players hunt giant and ferocious creatures before carving them up to create their armour gear or cook their findings on a BBQ to restore their health. Another monster introduced in the trailer is Dodogama, a rock-eating wyvern that possesses a unique saliva that causes rock to become explosive, a hazardous mix it will spit at its foes to warn off attackers.

And finally, Capcom has offered a tease at what players can expect post-launch content to look like.
