A new update is coming to Monster Hunter Rise this February 7. Title Update 4 is set to introduce new monsters and one of them is a Risen elder dragon. There are also new Anomaly Research Quests and Event Quests.

Now, let's start with the new monsters, with one of them being the Risen Crimson Glow Valstrax, elder dragons that have managed to find a way to overcome their affliction. By suppressing the Qurio virus, they obtained great strength as well as new abilities, and by having an abundance of dragon energy, they have been granted greater agility and more devastating explosive powers. Watch out for their anger because when it reaches its peak, these elder dragons enter the Risen state and their body starts to glow.

The second new monster is the Velkhana. While few records of this monster exist, they're known as the "Iceborne Wyvern" or "Ice Dragons that Freezes All." Their ice breath is said to be so cold that it can result in massive ice walls. There are even those who say that it's strong enough to freeze other monsters.
