We're kicking off the year 2022 in a pretty big way! Sure, you can turn your nose at the lack of actually new games, after all, some of these loudly announced games have been available for a long time on consoles. Nevertheless, people who do not play on the PC will also find something for themselves in January, so let's not get that picky. Especially since this is just the beginning, and the coming months should be even better.
Monster Hunter: Rise – PC port
Release date: January 12, 2022
Estimated price: $60
The next episode of hunting monsters
Monster Hunter is an acclaimed series of great monster hunting simulators. Recently, it's also available on PC and its latest version will also be available on this platform in January. Monster Hunter: Rise will be adapted to PC, offering support for mouse and keyboard, a properly adapted interface, and better graphics. In the end, while the game looks great on the Switch, the textures had to be tweaked to make it look equally good on much larger monitors.
Great beasts in Japanese style
Monster Hunter: Rise will take us to less tropical, and more oriental regions. This time, we will hunt creatures straight from Japanese mythology! Anyway, the whole game draws handfuls from the folklore of Japan, and the feline companion will be supported by a canine companion. The gameplay will also become more mobile thanks to the new wirebug mechanics, and the whole thing will be complemented by special attacks and the ability to mount monsters and temporarily control them. The core of the game, however, will remain unchanged – the idea is still to hunt unusual beasts and make increasingly powerful equipment from the trophies.
