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 Demo will be 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 can also reset the counter by switching accounts or deleting their save data.

New Technique: Wyvern Riding

Ride Monsters Into Battle

You can mount and control monsters with the Ironsilk from 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

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.

The event will bring with it a new video featuring new information for the game. We're looking forward to hearing about more New Monsters and Returning Monsters which will be featured in the game.

In previous live events, only the producers and directors of the game appeared, but this time Natsuki Hanae, the voice of Tanjiro, the main character of popular anime Kimetsu no Yaiba, will be joining as a narrator. Mr. Hanae has been known for streaming MHW: Iceborne, and although it hasn't been announced, it's possible that he will be joining as a voice actor in Monster Hunter Rise.

Since it's likely that the event will be dubbed over in the English release, those who are interested in hearing Natsuki Hanae's voice directly should check out the Japanese vesrion of the presentation.

    • Is it possible to view the armor and weapons we have equipped in the demo???

    • I hope they have different accessories for the Palamute like how the Palico can use Palico Gadgets! Maybe fang accessories which could inflict Poison, etc.?
