The Livestream: Everything We Learned

Demo Availability Period

Start Time January 8th, 1:00 AM GMT
End Time February 1st, 8:00 AM GMT
Limitations Only 30 plays available

The Switch Demo was available for a longer period than previous demos, but it comes with a catch: only 30 total plays of the main two Quests—the Great Izuchi and Mizutsune Quests—are available.

Once players have hit 30 plays, they'll be locked out of all four Quests, so they'll need to make every play count. That said, players could also reset the counter by switching accounts or deleting their save data.

New Technique: Wyvern Riding

Ride Monsters Into Battle

MH Rise - Wyvern Riding

You can mount and control monsters with your Wirebugs! It is an upgrade from the Mounting mini-game back in Monster Hunter World (MHW), since you can now make the monster go anywhere and attack anything. You can also launch the monster into a wall to knock it out, similar to the Clutch Claw move, Flinch Shot.

New Map: Frost Islands

MH Rise - Frost Islands
The Frost Islands was once home to a massive dragon who had droves of hunters trying to slay it and failing. There are now only humongous dragon bones and a broken Dragonship at the center of the islands left to tell the story.
