After months of hype, numerous trailers and a free trial, Capcom’s Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is now available for PC via Steam and Nintendo Switch. The story follows the birth of a mythical Rathalos known as Razewing Ratha who is said to bring ruin to the world. As its Rider, it’s your job to raise and protect it. Check out the launch trailer below.
Along with Razewing Ratha, players will encounter several other famous monsters like Rathian, Nergigante, Velkhana, Tigrex and Legiana. Combat is turn-based with a variety of different attack types and allies that will fight alongside you. Various Hunters crop up to stop Razewing Ratha but you’ll also investigate the mass disappearance of Rathalos and the strange pits cropping up in the world.
The free trial is also available on PC via Steam, allowing even more players a chance to try out the RPG before taking the plunge. Like the Switch trial, progress will carry over into the full game.
