Monster Hunter World was a game-changer for the franchise in many ways. Demons had never looked more intimidating, hunting had never felt more visceral, and Palicos had never been more lovable. This marked the first time in Monster Hunter history that the devs did away with the loading screen, bringing the title closer to the open world than before.
with the launch of iceborne, The game only got better, and for a while it looked like it might be the gold standard for Monster Hunter on the stage. Very soon, that won’t happen anymore. There’s a new contender throwing his hat in the ring.
Monster Hunter Rise is officially launching on PC! Rise World builds on what it did right, as well as adding a rich selection of new features, including rideable war dog.
We are particularly excited about this.
First and foremost, Rise introduces some exciting new mobility mechanics. With Wirebugs, your character is essentially equipped with his or her own hookshot. Combine it with wallrunning, and it’s arguably the fastest and most fluid Monster Hunter ever realized
The rise also changes how the mounting works, replacing it with wyvern riding. Instead of climbing up to a large dragon to wield whatever weapons are available, you’ll use Wirebugs to temporarily take control of the behemoth. So if you’re having trouble taking down a Naragakuga or Gauss Harg, you have a new answer beyond karting over and over again – bringing a monster of your own to the fight.
The new gameplay elements aren’t the only thing to be excited about. Rise on PC is launching with enhanced textures, uncapped frame rates and support for ultrawide screens. In other words, not only feels great to play, also looks like Amazing.
Monster Hunter Rise officially launches for PC on January 12, 2022 for $59.99. You can do this Buy it in advance and watch the demo here.
