Today, a new Monster Hunter Rise trailer was released online, highlighting the game’s future PC edition.
The new trailer shows off five different screen filters as well as certain PC-only capabilities like 4K and Ultrawide support, among other things.
Last year, Monster Hunter Rise was released on Nintendo Switch. In his review, Kai emphasized how the game is incredibly engaging for both newbies and veterans due to the simplification of many of the series’ staples as well as new mechanisms such as the Wirebug techniques.
Despite my overflowing love for Monster Hunter World, I think Monster Hunter Rise might overtake it as my favorite original title in the series. The ways that Capcom has streamlined the onboarding and pre-hunt experiences to give players more time to focus on the actual hunt itself show that Capcom wants to respect the player’s time, especially when they’re trying to get three friends together for an afternoon of hunting. Minus the new Rampage quests and the obligatory few egg delivery quests in the hub, there’s nothing about Monster Hunter Rise that I can hate!
Monster Hunter Rise launches on PC on January 12th. The game is now available on Nintendo Switch.
Rise to the challenge and join the hunt! In Monster Hunter Rise, the latest installment in the award-winning and top-selling Monster Hunter series, you’ll become a hunter, explore brand new maps and use a variety of weapons to take down fearsome monsters as part of an all-new storyline. The PC release also comes packed with some additional visual and performance-enhancing optimizations.
Ferocious monsters with unique ecologies
Hunt down a plethora of monsters with distinct behaviors and deadly ferocity. From classic returning monsters to all-new creatures inspired by Japanese folklore, including the flagship wyvern Magnamalo, you’ll need to think on your feet and master their unique tendencies if you hope to reap any of the rewards!
Choose your weapon and show your skills
Wield 14 different weapon types that offer unique gameplay styles, both up-close and from long range. Charge up and hit hard with the devastating Great Sword; dispatch monsters in style using the elegant Long Sword; become a deadly maelstrom of blades with the speedy Dual Blades; charge forth with the punishing Lance, or take aim from a distance with the Bow and Bowguns. These are just a few of the weapon types available in the game, meaning you’re sure to find the play style that suits you best.
