All 14 weapons of Monster Hunter Rise will be available in the demo, as well as the graphical enhancements that have been teased since its January 2022 release date announcement. What’s more, players that get in on the demo and complete it will be able to enjoy a reward package when the full game comes out. You don’t even need to finish all the quests. You only need to play the demo to get the Demo Player Bonus Item Pack, which includes 20 Mega Potions, 5 Pitfall Traps, 10 Energy Drinks, 5 Mega Demondrugs, and 5 Mega Armorskins. Pitfall traps are crucial to capturing monsters and Demondrug and Armorskin potions provide extra attack and defense power respectively, so the pack is full of useful goodies for the aspiring hunter’s inventory.
Monster Hunter Rise was a high point of the Nintendo Switch’s library in 2021 and a Game of the Year contender. With that in mind, there’s plenty to look forward to in terms of playing on PC, especially with the Sunbreak expansion coming in Summer 2022. Get in on the PC demo now and try your hand at the hunt ahead of the launch.
