Capcom’s Monster Hunter Rise is a Nintendo Switch action role-playing game. It is the Monster Hunter series’ sixth mainline chapter, and it was released globally on March 26, 2021. Nintendo Switch users were overjoyed with the release of Monster Hunter Rise on their platform, leaving fans of the game who use other platforms somewhat bummed.

If you’re a Monster Hunter fan or even a potential one on PC, however, you will be pretty excited to know that CAPCOM has announced the release of their latest instalment of the Monster Hunter franchise, i.e., Monster Hunter Rise on PC! In this article, we’ll touch on everything we know about Monster Hunter Rise’s PC version’s upcoming release so far, including exciting new additions like voice-chat and high performance options.

Release Date

Monster Hunter Rise is set to be released on PC on 12th January, 2022 through Steam. That’s pretty exciting news for the fans anticipating it because the date is quite close. If you’re unsure about purchasing Monster Hunter Rise on PC via Steam, CAPCOM has released a free PC demo of the game which has been available since 13th October, 2021 on Steam.

You can find the reveal of the release date in the trailer of Monster Hunter Rise here:


Monster Hunter Rise takes aim at nearly all of Monster Hunter’s boring parts that didn’t deserve much attention from players and tosses them into the wind. Palamutes are a brand-new Buddy character. They battle with the player and can be used as mounts to go around the map, making monster hunting much quicker and easier.

This is a major improvement from traversing in previous games alongside the new Wirebug grapple tool. During single-player hunts, the player will be accompanied by two buddies, either two Palamutes, two Palicoes, or one of each. You can enlist various buddies (with pre-determined appearances, skills, and gear), alter their behavior, or send them to the dojo for training.

Monsters can also be ridden with the Wirebug grapple tool. You can use the Wirebug to control a monster for a limited time by damaging it with Silkbind attacks or by taking advantage of Turf Wars. You can use this to conduct various attacks, evade incoming damage, or fling the monster into a wall, making it a viable alternative to mounted damage. Some weapons, most notably the Hunting Horn, have undergone considerable alterations in Monster Hunter World to make them far more useful. Nonetheless, mastering each weapon takes time and a lot of practice.

With the return of high-adrenalin, exciting monsters, and the introduction of new ones, Monster Hunter Rise promises to wow existing and potential fans with more fun than they have experienced in older installments.

PC Features

We are really excited about CAPCOM’s noticeable investment in Monster Hunter Rise’s PC version. Rise’s PC feature trailer addresses a number of concerns. Thanks to 4K resolutions, high-res textures, greater frame rates, and other advanced graphics options, it will look a lot better.

It will also include voice chat, which was one of the drawbacks of playing with pals on the Nintendo Switch. Rise will also feature enhanced keyboard and mouse controls, as well as the option to rebind and define shortcuts for actions. It’s great to know that at least a port to PC from the Nintendo Switch has all the necessary basic add-ons expected by fans. Find some of the announced PC features in the official trailer here:
