Monster Hunter Rise is an action RPG that will transport players to the colorful Kamura Village, an all-new serene mountain locale that attracts visitors with its unique culture and innovative hunting technologies. After hunters equip their armor and select from one of the various weapon types, all-new hunting grounds await, including the ancient Shrine Ruins and more. As players defeat monsters and progress through the game, items from fallen foes can be used to craft unique weapons and armor that will increase their chances of future success and survival. Hunters can tackle these challenges solo, or with up to three other players in local or cooperative online play.


Evolving the Monster Hunter series, Monster Hunter Rise will provide players with an inventive set of new tools to track down and defeat threatening monsters. For the first time ever in a Monster Hunter game, wire-based grappling actions can be performed by using a “Wirebug” while standing or in mid-air, adding an all-new level of aerial maneuverability to hunting strategies and attacks. The game will also debut new hunting partners called Palamutes, personalized and rideable “Canyne” companions that will provide players with a new set of attack options, while “Felyne” Palicoes will return as support characters for actions like healing.


Key Features


  • Rise to New Heights – The debut of the new “Wirebug” mechanic allows for wire-based grappling actions that can be used to scale cliffs and other hard-to-reach areas, providing new traversal and aerial attack options.
  • New and Returning Monsters – The game will introduce Magnamalo, a menacing new flagship monster, as well as other new monsters like the shape-shifting Aknosom, the amphibious Tetranadon, and more. Hunters can also expect to encounter numerous fan-favorite and returning species from previous Monster Hunter games.
  • Canyne Companions – New hunting partners called Palamutes can be personalized and used to ride across the terrain, providing players with all-new traveling and attack options. On solo hunts, players can select both a Palamute and Palico to assist them, while multiplayer hunters can bring one or the other into the field.
  • The Rampage – In addition to the plethora of solo and multiplayer quests, the immersive story mode will task aspiring hunters with discovering the secrets behind the puzzling “Rampage” events that threaten Kamura Village.
  • Hunting Options – Play solo, or join up to three other hunters in local or online co-op play. The Nintendo Switch system also allows for hunting anywhere, anytime and with anyone!
  • Seamless Gameplay – Featuring maps with no loading times, the continuous gameplay ensures that players will remain on their quests as soon as the hunt begins, without transitions between areas.

Rise is coming to PC in early 2022. Though it’s “still very much in development.”

Looking very clean, I played the Switch demo when that came out, so I'll be keen to see what this one is like with the framerate and resolution upgrade.. Looks like it is the same demo from footage.
Side note: I really hope this sells well, to justify Capcom's renewed interest in the platform.

Performance wise, it is fantastic. On my GTX 1060 laptop, it runs at 1440p, 80 fps with the highest settings. It does have pretty lightning and a lot of textures look good from the distance, but it is still an overall downgrade from MHW, which I don't mind ofcourse.

One thing that's strange is the main menu which is capped at 30 fps.

Yeah running extremely well (as expected) on an i5 7400 and 2060S, feels crazy to play at such smooth settings. K&M also seems to work well although I used controller.

Runs great on my old I7 3770k just don't have RTSS running or have it set to ignore. That caused my game to CTD after language selection.

But with that pricing (I got gifted Rise on switch) here it a hard not recommend. It is slightly more than 60$ here - even at 60$ or 10% off if you can get it, I would still wait. Which is funny as Nintendo is usually pricey as they don't really support my region.

The demo for this game is pretty damned good. There's something about the hit stop when you attack that makes it feel like you're not hitting as hard, but whatever. Day 1.
