Monster Hunter Rise will only be released digitally for PS4, PS5 and Xbox

The Capcom game will cease to be exclusive to Nintendo Switch and Steam in January 2023, but it will not arrive in physical format on Sony and Microsoft consoles.
One of the most coveted exclusives in the Steam and Nintendo Switch catalogue, the award-winning Monster Hunter Rise, confirmed its arrival on PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S a few days ago, but it has not been until today that we have known that the game will arrive solely and exclusively in digital format. Users of Microsoft and Sony consoles will only be able to get hold of it through the PS Store and Xbox Store, where it will be released on January 20, 2023 at a price of 39.99 euros.

Departure in Game Pass

Monster Hunter Rise will arrive with news on the technical level, since it can be enjoyed for the first time in 4K and 60 fps thanks to its versions for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, where it will also include a 1080p / 120 fps mode , it will have 3D audio and even will make use of the exclusive functions of each platform. On PS5, for example, there will be crossplay with PS4 and Dualsense features such as adaptive triggers will be used , while on Xbox there will be no crossplay, but it will be available out of Game Pass.

It will arrive without the Sunbreak expansion

The only problem with the game in its jump to the rest of the consoles is that it will not include Sunbreak, the great expansion that it received this summer and which we awarded with an 8.6 in its review , where we referred to it as essential and talked about ” The ideal conclusion to this Monster Hunter Rise.” According to Capcom, the DLC will eventually be released on PS4, PS5, and Xbox separately in Spring 2023.

As for Monster Hunter Rise as such, the 9 in its analysis and its title ( A formula determined to continue improving ) say it all. Be careful of the words that our colleague Sergio Carlos González dedicated to him: ” It is a total video game. When we thought that World had established the bases of what the series should be in practically everything, the new installment opens a parallel path where progress is made in the most important thing: the gameplay. Capcom continues in a state of grace and has implemented improvements in all the points where it could. The mere fact of moving is satisfying. Rise maintains its essence, recovers the spirit of the fourth numbered installmentand takes the elements that made World an event. A new essential episode, an excellent game as a whole to which very few things can be attributed. We are in luck, the saga continues to be determined to continue to improve”.
