PREVIOUSLY exclusive to Nintendo Switch and Steam, one of the highest rated games of the past year is now coming to modern consoles.
Monster Hunter Rise was released in early 2021 and was a huge hit with fans and critics alike.
It scored an impressive 88/100 on the Metacritic review site, making it one of the top-rated Switch games of the year.
Monster Hunter is a classic open-world adventure RPG series in which you hunt huge beasts to gather resources and craft items.
However, many fans weren’t able to experience the latest game in the series as it was a console exclusive to the Switch.
Capcom has announced that Monster Hunter Rise will be ported and released to other platforms January 20, 2023.
It’s coming to PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S for the bargain price of £32.99 ($39.99).
There will also be a version on the Windows Store so Game Pass players can enjoy it for free on PC or Console Game Pass.
The Sunbreak update, which has almost doubled the content of the original game, will also be available on the new platforms in the spring of next year.
Those who want to play can now pre-order the game on all available platforms.
The blurb reads as follows:
“Monster Hunter Rise is the latest installment in the action RPG series and takes players to Kamura Village, a colorful and serene environment that attracts visitors with its unique culture and innovative hunting technologies.
“The core gameplay in Monster Hunter Rise stays true to previous critically acclaimed Monster Hunter entries.
“Hunters must equip their armor and choose from one of 14 different weapon types to take on intimidating enemies.
“As players defeat monsters and progress through the game, items carved by fallen enemies can be used to craft unique weapons and armor that increase their chances of survival.
“Hunters can take on these challenges alone or with up to three other hunters in online cooperative play.”
