    Monster Hunter Now The Vernal Invader will officially begin on 5:00 p.m. PDT / 8:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, March 13. The update will add the Charge Blade, which features movement-focused Sword Mode and powerful Axe Mode. Charge energy while in Sword Mode and then use it in Axe Mode to inflict greater damage in a combined weapon. Super Amped Element Discharge can deal immense damage in a single attack.

    Odogaron, Tzitzi-Ya-Ku, and Deviljho will arrive as new monsters in Monster Hunter Now The Vernal Invader. Odogaron and Tzitzi-Ya-Ku are available after completing the corresponding urgent quests in the Season 1 story quest. They will also appear on the field for those who have completed the prologue, and the introduction of Odogaron means the bleeding status aliment will now be available in the game. Deviljho may be encountered by using the new Invasions feature.

    Latent Power, Quick Work and Status Sneak Attack are some of the new skills that will soon be available. What’s more, loadouts have been increased from five to ten, giving players more options to choose from before going on the hunt.

    As players explore the map, some territories may appear at random within the game’s habitats. Players may engage a large monster roaming this area, but the encounter may prove to be more surprising and challenging than expected. Deviljho may invade the encounter, ambushing the player and replacing the initial monster.

    Layered equipment will be available in Monster Hunter Now with the latest update. Forged equipment grade 6 or above can be used as layered equipment.
