Kamura Village is the home base for hunters in Monster Hunter Rise.
It is confirmed that you can ride Palamutes, use Wirebugs, and execute attacks inside the village premises—similar to a regular map. Because of this, it could be possible that an endgame battle will take place in Kamura Village!
This is one of the first confirmed maps in Monster Hunter Rise. The map is full of ruins and abandoned buildings where civilization used to take place. It is possible that the people of Kamura Village used to live here until the Rampage.
The Frost Islands used to be the nest of a giant dragon. Countless hunters have tried to slay it but failed. Now it is the home of massive dragon bones and a wrecked Dragonship.
The Lava Caverns is a large cave system where a gradual flow of lava falls adjacent to a crystalline body of water.
The Flooded Forest is a returning map that last appeared in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. The overall atmosphere is very gloomy with huge open areas littered with bodies of water. The iconic pyramid from past games and could be interesting to traverse using wirebugs!
The Sandy Plains is also a returning map that was last seen in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. This map is a vast landmass of sand and hot sun but during the night, the moonlight allows a cool breeze to sweep through the plains.
In MHRise, when entering a previously unexplored map, the map seems to be covered in a fog of war. It is not yet confirmed if you need to fully explore the map to reveal its entirety.
Like in Monster Hunter World, the map in Monster Hunter Rise is a one, continuous map. There is no loading time between areas like in past portable games.
Campsites for Sub-Camps are found across each of the game's maps. Once unlocked, they open up new Fast Travel points accessible to the player.
After finding a Campsite, you'll need to return to Kamura Village after the Quest and complete a Request to make the new Sub-Camp available.
The newly introduced Palamute companion can be ridden throughout the map for faster movement. This goes very well with the huge seamless map!
You can move up, down, left, or right using Wirebugs. This new movement option allows the hunter to seamlessly run up vertical walls and across valleys without worrying about vertical height.
The location of monsters is shown on the map initially. When you encounter it the first time, the mark changes to the icon of that monster.
Also, all the monsters present on the map during the session appears at the upper right corner of the screen!
By zooming in on the map, you can see the location of all materials and collectibles.
Endemic Life, which is first introduced in Monster Hunter World, is present in Monster Hunter Rise. These creatures provide buffs to the hunter or can be used as items.
The default control for opening the map is by pressing and holding the minus ( - ) button. You may change this to just pressing it once by going to ''Options → Controls → (-) Controls'' and choosing Type 2. The control details are found in the lower-left text box!
You may also quickly access the Detailed Map shuffling through the Action Bar using the directional buttons!
Lastly, you can open the Detailed Map by going to the Start Menu and pressing the Y button. This one takes two steps so we do not recommend using this!
Open the Detailed Map then use the L or R Button to choose which endemic life or materials you want to display! Furthermore, you can press the X button to display specific endemic life or materials only!
After choosing which icons to display, the Detailed Map (and the detailed map alone) will display these icons. Depending on your settings, your HUD could display the Detailed Map by default or you need to hold the L Button to show it.
|General Map||Detailed Map|
You may change between displaying the General or Detailed Map on your HUD during hunts. Just go to the Start Menu then look for ''Options → Game Settings → HUD Map Type''.
Depending on which you choose, the opposite will set when you hold the L button.
|Map ON||Map OFF|
If you do not want the map to appear in your HUD, go to the Start Menu then look for ''Options → Game Settings → HUD Settings → Uncheck Map''.
|Toggle ON||Toggle OFF|
You can also change if you want the Map Type to shift between General and Detailed when pressing the L Button. To do this, go to the Start Menu then look for ''Options → Game Settings → HUD Map Toggle Type''.
