This is a summary of the Digital Event Official Livestream taking place on March 9th, 2021 for Monster Hunter Rise (MHRise). Find out everything we learned at the event, and where the event can be accessed!

Goss Harag Shown in Action

Goss Harag Footage.jpeg

Goss Harag was shown both inflicting and being inflicted by Iceblight. His ice breath looks menacing, but his slow movements mean he won't be as huge of a threat as other wilier monsters.

Enraged Goss Harag

Different versions of the Goss Harag fight were shown in the Japanese and English versions of the stream, so interested players can check out both for a comparison. Goss Harag revealed new powerful attacks in the English version as it became enraged, wielding ice blades on both its arms!

Switch Skills for Long Sword

Long Sword

Switch Skills in Action.jpeg

The Switch Skills for the Long Sword were demonstrated. As was previously shown, both normal attacks and Silkbind Attacks can be switched.

It seems that Switch Skills are used from the Item Box, so it won't be possible to switch in and out right in the middle of combat. Be sure to come prepared with the skills you want!

Long Sword Details

Charge Blade

A variety of moves were shown for the Charge Blade which can be switched out in the English version of the video!

The Rampage Revealed

The Rampage Begins.jpeg

The Rampage was shown this time in full swing. The Hunter was able to place installations freely around the base.

It seems that monsters can destroy parts of the fort and installations, so protecting them from monsters' attacks also seems to be an important part of the fight.

What is the Rampage?

Apex Arzuros Comes Out Swinging

As expected, Apex Monsters pack a punch, with Apex Arzuros dishing out as much as 3000 damage to parts of the fort. Don't mistake it for its standard version!

What are Apex Monsters?

Magnamalo from Demo 2 Shown

Magnamalo Hits Hard.jpeg

Magnamalo was shown in its appearance in the upcoming second Demo. It uses powerful signature attacks with its tail, and can inflict a new status effect which may translate to Hellfire Blight. This effect causes damage over time, but can be removed by using the Wirebug.

Magnamalo Details

Palico Gadgets Confirmed

Healing Fruit

The first Palico Gadget shown in Monster Hunter Rise, the Healing Fruit seems to restore health quickly to a set area.

Free Title Update Details

The Free Title Update coming at the end of April will allow for unlocking a new higher cap to players' Hunter Rank. It seems that HR points will continue to add up even when the player's HR is capped, so it's worth it to take the time to grind up in preparation for the Title Update.

The ending to the game will also be unlocked, so it seems that surprisingly, players cannot complete the entire story upon release of the game. On the plus side, it's exciting to know that we can expect more additions to the story even after the game is released.

Free Title Update Details

    • Give us the ability to change our layered armor display. What I mean is, ya know how armor looks different on the male and female models? well, I wish there was the ability to change the appearance from the male models of armor, to the female models, and the reverse without changing the gender of your character itself. This would be really nice, as imo some armor pieces look better as the male model version.
