Capcom has given a release date for the PC version of Monster Hunter Rise, alongside news on the game’s forthcoming DLCs and expansion.

When the latest entry in the popular series arrives via Steam, it’ll do so with 4K resolution support and high quality textures. As well as this, there’ll be built-in voice chat support and uncapped framerates too. A demo for the game will be available as soon as next month, on October 13.

It wasn’t the only news on the game from the Tokyo Game Show, as Capcom took the opportunity to showcase the game’s next Capcom Collaboration DLC. Hunters will be able to don the armour of Ghosts ‘n Goblins hero Arthur via an Event quest landing October 29. After that, there’ll be a Sonic the Hedgehog collaboration quest in November. We’ll get more details on the Sonic collaboration closer to launch.

The team also took the opportunity to name the first two monsters in upcoming expansion Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak. The monster we were introduced to in the reveal trailer is elder dragon Malzeno. Joining him is the returning Shogun Ceanataur and they’ll both provide a tough challenge for even seasoned Hunters.

You can check out all three videos below. Monster Hunter Rise arrives on PC on January 12, 2022. Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is set to launch on both Nintendo Switch and PC in Summer 2022.
