Aside from new creatures, this entry has plenty of differences with that of the similarly popular MH World.

Palamutes and Cohoots are some of the more significant additions to Rise in terms of companions. The former has the ability to accompany players in multiplayer. It can also be used in combat and as a means of transportation. On the other hand, the latter serves as a scout that allows you to see more of the map.
