CapcomThe latest Monster Hunter game – great product Monster Hunter Rise – finally on PC. We’ve noted that the game is (in every way) better on PC than on the Nintendo Switch. But we know you’re a wise man and our words mean nothing if you don’t have the option to see the evidence for yourself. So Dorrani and I put together a video for you, showing off all the way to the latest entry in the veteran series ahead of the original Switch release in 2021.
You can see in the video above that there are a number of notable elements that are unmatched in making this game better on PC; for starters, the Switch version is limited to 30FPS. The actual result of that, when held to an unlimited (!) nice, smooth on PC is a much smoother game. One of the really good responses to your frantic input. One that feels much more fair when you’re about to be surrounded by Apex Azuros.
I can’t talk about Dorrani in the video above, but on my PC device, I’m also playing the game in 4K – something that any iteration of Switch hardware can’t do, even if it wanted to. . This has resulted in some incredible moments. Notably, last night, I fainted for the first time during my run through this version of the game at the hands of a Bishaten. I was so busy tending to its milky white fur, expressed in velvety soft details, that I was drawn to it like a large moth, mute before the roaring fire of fury.
Seconds later, BOOM. Hit the ground by an ingenious rocket from the fruit. Cargo time.
Whether you’re flopping in a Wirebug, diving out of the way of a very powerful Rathalos fireball, or just hanging around Kamura Village soaking in that buzzing atmosphere, Monster Hunter Rise just feels better when all bells and whistles turn up to 11.
As Dorrani pointed out, you can’t just take your PC out and do some Collecting Quests on the toilet in this version (boo), but I would trade quality over portability of this game.
Monster Hunter Rise landing on PC on January 12, 2022 and have updated armor and weapon sets tied to Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, Okami, Street Fighter, Mega Man 11, Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection and non-Capcom Sonic the Hedgehog.
