MH Rise Final Boss May Be An Amatsu Look-Alike
The 5th trailer for MH Rise highlighted during the March 8 Digital Event showed a mysterious monster at the very end of the scene. The monster's appearance look different from usual monsters, leading us to believe that it's an ancient wyvern. The final boss of Monster Hunter 3G called Dire Miralis was also given a preview at the end of its trailers, and given how this monster was shown for MH Rise, there's a big chance that this monster is the final boss.Check Out The Final Boss Guide Here

Zinogre was featured once again in the 5th trailer along with several other monsters that were previously confirmed in earlier trailers.See The All Confirmed Monsters List

Varying Quest Difficulty
The difficulty of the quest will vary depending on how many people are in the game and will change as players come and go.
Reconnect With Hunters
If by any chance that you liked your playing experience with certain hunters in a quest, you'll be given an option to "like" them at the end of the quest. If the "like" was mutual, the software will make it easier for you to be able to match with them again in future games.See The Multiplayer & Co-op Guide
More info on the Rampage was given in the March 8 digital event! It appears that you'll be able to prepare your defenses ahead of time before the monsters come in hordes. This is key in protecting the village. "Counter Signal" increases the attack of hunters, so take note when this mode is activated. The goal is to defend the stronghold and fend off the monsters.Check Out The Rampage Guide
