Capcom has announced that Monster Hunter Rise for PC (via Steam) will be released on January 12, 2022.
Announced during Tokyo Game Show 2021, the Steam version of the game boasts a number of updates to the original Switch version: 4K resolution support, high-res textures, uncapped framerates, optimised keyboard and mouse controls, voice chat, and ultrawide 21:9 display support.
A demo for the PC version of the game will arrive on October 13, giving you a look at what’s to come. The demo will include online multiplayer and offline solo play, allow use of all 14 weapon types, and include two tutorials. After the tutorials, three quests are available, against Great Izuchi, Mizutsune and Magnamalo.
Released as a Switch exclusive in March, we awarded Monster Hunter Rise an 8/10 review, saying that it “mixes classic Monster Hunter ideas with some of World’s best improvements and a whole bunch of clever new mechanics of its own.”
After leaks suggested the game would eventually get an improved PC release, Capcom confirmed that the game would get a PC release. ““We received a lot of requests for a PC version of Monster Hunter Rise, particularly from overseas players, and so we have decided to develop a version for PC,” said producer Ryozo Tsujimoto at the time.
Rise will receive a “massive expansion”, Sunbreak in the summer of 2022 – the PC edition will receive it at the same time.
