Submit

With the Monster Hunter Rise PC demo now available for download on Steam, YouTuber ElAnalistaDeBits has quickly prepared a video comparison to highlight the visual differences with the original Nintendo Switch version. Needless to say, they are massive. According to ElAnalistaDeBits, there are also some brand new post-processing effects like depth of field.

  • The most noticeable changes are in resolution, framerate and texturing.
  • Some shadows have been improved, but others still show the same quality as on Switch.
  • Greater drawing distance on PC.
  • PC adds some interesting improvements, such as the implementation of depth of field or other post-processing effects.

Of course, the PC version of Monster Hunter Rise will also feature HDR display support, Ultrawide display support, uncapped frame rate, and more. These are the official system requirements:
