Monster Hunter Now ramps up its launch festivities with the new Diablos Invasion event

Niantic has announced a diabolical new update to Monster Hunter Now, the studio's popular beast-hunting game infused with immersive AR technology. With the new Diablos Invasion event, you can look forward to embarking on a dangerous expedition to uncharted desert regions to hunt down an outbreak of Diablos this month.

In the latest event for Monster Hunter Now, make sure to gear up as you prep to face an influx of Diablos with your fellow hunters. This majestic beast will be appearing beginning Saturday, September 23rd, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. local time. The event will last until Sunday, September 24th, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. local time as well.

Apart from an unforgettable encounter with Diablos, you can also expect a few Time-limited Event Quests that you can clear to score rewards - this includes being able to catch a snapshot of Diablos in AR mode. The creature will pop up once you've reached HR11.
