Monster Hunter Rise Is Unsmoothly On PC Now

Monster Hunter Rise is now available on PC, nine months after its release on Nintendo Switch. Capcom’s next lizard-skinner is a decent one, and the pre-release demo we saw seemed like a respectable PC version. However, now that the game is available to the public, a problem is preventing some potential gamers from even starting a fresh save. Nonetheless, the vast majority of people appear to be content with hollowing out dogs to manufacture slippers.

Rise heads off to a new land with some new monsters inspired by Japanese folklore, as well as a new ‘Wirebug’ grappling hook and new ‘Palamute’ dog friends you can ride. Then you kill monsters to make better weapons and armour from their corpses to kill tougher monsters to make better weapons and armour from their corpses to kill tougher monsters to make better weapons and armour from their corpses to kill tougher monsters to make better weapons and armour from their corpses to kill tougher monsters to make better weapons and armour from their corpses to kill tougher monsters to make better weapons and armour from their corpses to kill the toughest monster to make the best weapons and armour from its corpse.

Our Katharine’s Monster Hunter Rise PC review thought it “a more than worthy successor” to the previous game, 2018’s Monster Hunter: World.

“There’s a generous and playful sense of freedom here that keeps combat and exploration feeling fresh, and the momentum of its hunting-led missions means you’re rarely spinning your wheels as you seek out that last elusive armour part,” she said. “It’s kept me playing much longer than I ever did with World, and I can’t wait to see how it develops with its imminent Sunbreak expansion later this summer.”

Sounds good if you can play it, but not everyone can. Both Steam player reviews and the official troubleshooting thread have many complaints about an issue stopping some players from starting the game. Apparently, it requires newcomers to create a new save file to store their game but then fails to do that, leaving them at the point of needing to create a save which the game is unable to actually create. Hopefully, Capcom get folks on that sharpish.

I suppose scattershot technical issues are less of a problem since Steam improved refund policies years back but even if you got your money back, it would still suck find you can’t play a game you wanted enough to buy.

Monster Hunter Rise is out now on Steam for £50/€60/$60. Its demo is still up on Steam too.
