Monster Hunter Rise Is Coming to PC, But Only in Early 2022
Monster Hunter Rise is exactly one month away from its March 26th release date, when the game will be released for the Nintendo Switch console. Monster Hunter Rise has been rumored to be coming to PC as well, however, and today we've got confirmation of that via Fanbyte. The caveat is that this version is still very much in development according to CAPCOM and will, therefore, only be released in early 2022.
Meanwhile, there is another way to play Monster Hunter Rise on PC: via emulators. Ryujinx managed to run the demo just fine, even featuring online play via its LDN functionality.
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.
