In a few years, the Monster Hunter franchise has taken off, and not just a little: it has become one of the most prolific in the sector, in particular thanks to the World episode which today stands out as the best-selling game in Capcom’s history. This is no small feat and, well aware of this monstrous potential, the Osaka firm quickly decided to engage with the generous Iceborne expansion as well. than a brand new title, named Monster Hunter Rise, and destined for the Switch.
Unsurprisingly, this app, which landed in March 2024, turned out to be very good: for its part, the public responded with alluring sales scores since last August, 7.3 million sales were already declared. Suffice to say that today, the Nintendo hit has well inflated its statistics: history of, why not, attempting to break records, Capcom has therefore decided to wear his baby on the PC. The game will be available on January 12 and offers a sharp launch trailer in 4K, freshly published and available in our video player, above.
The main advantage of this PC version, it is obviously to enjoy a game that will not be restricted in any way by the nomadic machine of Big N: recently, Capcom has given minimum and recommended configurations, which suggest a fairly flexible and not very greedy technique for 1080p and 30FPS. Of course, the happy owners of beefier machines will be able to increase the definition and the framerate.
In addition, we can count on high-resolution textures, customization options in all directions, graphic filters or even compatibility for ultra-wide screens.
Note especially that the game will be able to rely on cross-play, to be able to play with players on Switch, but also on cross-save, to be able to transfer your Nintendo save directly to Steam: de facto, Monster Hunter Rise can be offered as the perfect continuity of your initial game and that’s a hell of a good point.
It remains to be seen from now on if all the insiders of the very vast Monster Hunter World will find their account in this opus Rise., perhaps not as gigantic but nevertheless having solid skills that we suggest you find in our test, at this address.
