Game Overview

Monster Hunter Rise injects a brand new take on the series. Players need to team up and save the vast open world of the Kamura Village from the threatening Rampage. 

So, step into the hunting ground and get ready for some hunting action! Choose from the various types of weapons and equip your armor. You can then embark on a challenging journey to save the village and defeat precarious foes. Pick up items from the fallen monsters and craft unique weapons and armors out of it. It’s your call to face the journey alone or team up with up to three of your friends in the local or online co-op play. 

Aside from the new wall-climbing ability, you can also harness a new ‘Wirebug’ hunting tool. The Wirebug can be equipped as a grappling hook that increases your success and survival during combat. You can use it while standing or in mid-air allowing you to have full aerial maneuverability. 

Monster Hunter Rise will feature new hunting partners called: Palamutes and Palicoes. Palamute is a dog-like companion that can be personalized and ridden through the game’s vast environment and aid you in combat. Meanwhile, Capcom described Palicoes as returning characters that will support for actions like healing.
