This research center and command post is responsible for stopping the threat that hangs over the Kingdom. The target list includes powerful creatures inspired by the staples of Western horror, known as the Three Lords. This group includes the mighty elemental Garangolm, the chilling Fanged Wyvern Lunagaron, and the vampiric Elder Dragon Malzeno.

In addition to these nightmarish foes, other new monster variants and fan favorites such as Humbled Magnamalo, Thorns, and Shagaru Magala appear to challenge hunters on Master Rank quest difficulty.

To meet these dire forces, hunters arriving at Elgado Outpost will need to find new ways to approach combat. While Kamura Village is known for its unique Cordoptera techniques, including Choplash Attacks and the Wyvern Mount, hunters summoned to the Realm will learn new Tradable Skills and the new Change Tradable Skills technique.

This technique allows hunters to assign interchangeable Skills to two different loadouts, which can be switched on the fly during hunts. The added flexibility of choosing which abilities are best for any given situation allows an experienced hunter to overcome almost any obstacle.

Hunters under attack while swapping can also Swap Evade in any direction to avoid danger or reposition to continue the assault.

Investigating the behavior of the Three Lords takes hunters across the Realm to exciting new and reimagined locations, including the newly released Bastion and the returning Jungle. The Bastion features snow-capped peaks that slope down to lush forests teeming with new forms of local wildlife.

At the center of this vast region sits a long-abandoned fortress that serves as a stronghold for the very monsters it was built for. For its part, the Jungle returns from the second generation of Monster Hunter titles and enjoys a warm climate with abundant rainfall, making it a paradise for the monsters and plant life that live there.
