Monster Hunter Rise is the 6th mainline installment in the Monster Hunter series. It was released on March 26, 2021, for the Nintendo Switch. A PC version of Monster Hunter Rise is planned to be released on January 12, 2022.
A Palamute, which may be used to ride into battle or across the map, is one of the new additions. The game mainly got good reviews at its first release, and more than 7.5 million copies have been sold worldwide.
The Hunter is the role of a player tasked with slaughtering or capturing the monsters by damaging and weakening them using a range of tools and weapons. Swords, firearms, staves, shields, and bows are among the 14 weapon types available in Rise, as they were in previous games.
With the help of Wirebug, the player can grip and swing to higher locations or over gaps. The Wirebug interacts differently with all weapon types, adding to the combinations available to that weapon. The Hunter can saddle and control the monster because of Wyvern Riding. It is done in order to either lead it towards more combat-friendly locations or fight a different monster.
Palamutes are new dog-like companion creatures in Rise. The player can ride them to navigate the map without losing stamina quickly. Palamutes join the player’s other companion option, the cat-like Palicoes, who return from previous games. Rise features both single-player and local and online multiplayer modes.
