Monster Hunter Rise Lands PC Release for January 2022, Demo Arriving Next Month

Following on from a Nintendo Switch release last March, Capcom's Monster Hunter Rise has done exceedingly well. Having offered significant free post-launch support, a PC edition was planned for their action RPG and now, we've got a release date of January 12, 2022.

Following on from Capcom's Tokyo Game Show presentation earlier, a PC demo was also confirmed, which arrives on October 13th via Steam. They've also confirmed that Rise's PC launch will include "all major post-launch content" available in the Nintendo Switch version, up until November 2021.

That's not all, either. While further details will be published nearer to launch, Capcom also outlined several PC-exclusive features, which we've included below:

More information about future content and timing will be available at a later date. The PC version will feature customizable optimizations, allowing hunters to enjoy their journey in 4K resolution and with ultrawide (21:9 aspect ratio) support, while also offering uncapped framerates and high-resolution textures.

It follows on from last week's Nintendo Direct presentation, which confirmed that Monster Hunter Rise is getting a major expansion next year called Sunbreak. Scheduled for Summer 2022, we'll keep you informed with any further Rise updates as they occur.
