Monster Hunter 4: Ultimate's free July DLC revealed

Get the Star Knight Armour without visiting Universal Studios Japan.

Monster Hunter 4: Ultimate's free DLC for the month of July has been revealed on the Capcom Unity Blog.

Star Knight, star bright.

Like always, this includes 14 new quests and five new weapons, one of which is a hammer actually made out of ham. Oh god, is that what Poogie is being prepped for? Poogie!

But the big standout this time is the Star Knight Armour, a highly coveted armour set that was originally only available to those who visited Universal Studios Japan. Often considered overpowered, the rare Star Knight Armour has some pretty sweet stats.

Unfortunately, the Star Knight Armour won't be added until 17th July, while the rest of the new content is already available. Head to the DLC option from the main menu to snag it all, then activate the new quests at the corresponding guild hall.

The new July content adds the following:

  • 14 New quests
  • 5 New weapons
  • 3 Complete armor set
  • 1 Palico weapon
  • 1 Palico armor set
  • 1 Bonus Palico: Brown Pal
  • 3 Guild Card backgrounds
  • 7 Guild Card titles
