This is an article on G Rank and Ultimate expansions in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise). Read on for the best information on the potential release date of G Rank or Master Rank in MH Rise plus possible Ultimate expansion!

Is G Rank (Master Rank) in MH Rise?

Will Probably Come in an Expansion

It is known tradition that the first game that comes out in a Monster Hunter series will only feature low rank and high rank with G Rank coming out as a completely separate game or expansion. This was the case for MHGU and MHW: Iceborne respectively.

Since we are in the age of downloadable content (DLC), we expect the G Rank expansion of MH Rise to come as a paid DLC much like Iceborne in MHW. We will update this page as news comes up!

No News Yet for an Expansion

There is no news yet for a Monster Hunter Rise G Rank expansion or if MH Rise will have G Rank included for now. If we are to follow the past games, however, we can see a G Rank expansion announced 1-2 years from now.

Base Game Base Game Release Date Expansion Release Date Gap
MH Generations July 15, 2016 Aug. 28, 2018 ~2 years
MH World Dec. 22, 2017 Sept. 6 2019 ~2 years
MH Rise Mar. 26, 2021 First Half 2023? ~2 years

What is G Rank?

An Expansion for the Base Game (Master Rank)

Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise) - G Rank Expansion

G Rank expansion for MH4 is called MH4G

G Rank is generally an expansion for the base game in every Monster Hunter game with added features like new maps, monsters, and quests.

In games before MHGen and MHW, Capcom releases the G Rank expansion as a completely separate game. Since consoles and PCs nowadays support DLCs, Capcom has opted to make the G Rank expansion a paid DLC.

MHW Drops G Rank in Favor of Master Rank

In Monster Hunter World, Capcom decided to drop the G Rank naming and instead go with Master Rank. If you are coming from Monster Hunter World, Master Rank might be more familiar to you but G Rank and Master Rank are the same thing. We don't know yet if MH Rise will use Master Rank or G Rank but we will update this as soon as it is confirmed!

Capcom Also Dropped the G Title Naming

In addition to completely renaming G Rank to Master Rank, Capcom also dropped adding the G title suffix since MHXX and MHW: Iceborne. We think Rise will follow this format and will not be named MHRIseG but we will update this article when news comes up!

Features More Difficult Quests

Ultimate Expansion Speculations

There have been discussions of Monster Hunter Rise having an expansion similar to World having Iceborne. Speculations of it being called Monster Hunter Rise Ultimate is being tossed around, so be on the lookout for more announcements!

The expansion title Ultimate is thought to have stemmed from older game expansions using Ultimate, thus MH Rise possibly adapting the same moniker.

    • 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.
