Expected By September Or October
There's no official announcement when ver. 4.0 update will be released. But we can expect that this will be released after the August Ver. 3.3 Update. So it is possible that the Update 4.0 will be released by September or October.3.3 Update - August Release Date Details
New Monster Update
Full-Grown Monsters Are Highly Likely To Be Added
There are juvenile monsters like Uroktor, Zamite, and Basarios in Rise. The chance of releasing their full-grown versions like Agnaktor, Zamtrios, Gravios, etc. are high.
Monsters From Relic Records May Appear
Since Alatreon and Fatalis have appeared in Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, we could expect some contraindicated monsters to appear in Rise. The Relic Records in Lava Caverns contains some evidence of Dire Miralis' appearance. Is it possible that they appear?
Shagaru Magala May Appears
In the trailer of the Infernal Springs, we had hints of Shagaru Magala possibly appearing in MH Rise through future updates.
Gigantic Monsters May Be Added
There are Gigantic Monsters in the previous Monster Hunter Series but there are no large monsters in Rise yet. We are looking forward to the appearance of large monsters like Lao-Shan Lung and Zorah Magdaros.
New Apex Monsters
The current Apex Monsters released previously were also part of the Special Permit Quests from Monster Hunter Generations. The other 2 monsters that appear in the said Special Permission Quests are Nargacuga and Tigrex. We could expect that the next Apex monsters would be these 2 monsters.
New Gameplay Features For Speedrunners
Expect Special Quests
The Update 4.0 could be released after August Update 3.3 release. This could be after half a year since the game's release date. So we could expect some quests for speedrunners will be added as well. This could be closer to the Special Permit Quest from MHXX.
Quest Similar To Siege Quest May Be Added
In Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, there's a Siege Quest to hunt Kulve Taroth that can be joined by the players in the Gathering Hub. Since the Gathering Hub for Rise consists of 4 players unlike the MHW Gathering Hub that consists of 16 players, there's a chance that there will be a different objective yet similar to Siege Quest.Hub Quest List Details
Weapon Balance Adjustment
Weapons in Rise were not adjusted yet, unlike in Iceborne. If changes were to be applied, the gaps from the weapons may be gone.
Offspring Of Narwa & Ibushi Possibly Appearing
Although, Thunder Serpent Narwa and Wind Serpent Ibushi were already slain in the previous story. Is it possible that they actually had children? Maybe there's more story that will be added.
Is It Possible That This Will Be A Paid DLC?
Paid DLC Updates like Iceborne's Master Rank can be added. However, considering the release of the PC version in early 2022, it seems that there will be a large update at an earlier time. So there's a chance of this being a paid DLC.

Wind Serpent Ibushi & Thunder Serpent Narwa Face Off?
A new ending involving the Wind Serpent Ibushi & Narwa The Allmother was added to the game in 3.0. This quest will require you to fight both of these enemies at the same time, so make sure you're prepared.
