Monster Hunter: Rise is another installment in the famous action RPG series, in which we hunt for powerful beasts. The game offers a single player mode, as well as the option to play in a four-player co-op. The Japanese company Capcom, which has been developing this cycle for years, is responsible for its development and release.


Monster Hunter: Rise action is set in a village called Kamura and the surrounding area. The plot of the game focuses on strange, destructive events called Rampage, which threaten the mentioned village.


In Monster Hunter: Rise, we observe the action from behind the hero's back. The gameplay is similar to the previous versions of the series - while travelling through an open and screenless world (including the ruins of a temple) we hunt for various beasts we encounter, using an assortment of weapons and additional items. As the game progresses, we acquire new equipment (we often make it from the acquired ingredients) and develop the hero's skills.

Rise introduces some new ideas and a mechanic to a proven formula. We have a rope with a hook called Wirebug, which allows to get to seemingly inaccessible places and use completely new tactics during the hunt. We also encounter monsters that have not been seen before, such as the shape-shifting Aknosome, the giant amphibian Tetranadon and the powerful Magnamalo.

A new type of creature can also help players - Palamutes are used as mounts and allow to perform special attacks.

Game modes

In Monster Hunter: Rise can play both alone and with others. The game offers a feature campaign and a four-person co-op mode.

Technical aspects

Monster Hunter: Rise has a solid, three-dimensional graphic design. The game does not set new standards, either for the series or for the genre, but its character cannot be denied. Particularly noteworthy here are the original designs of the monsters we hunt for during the game.
