The new Monster Hunter Rise demo is launching this week on Steam, and gamers have less than 24-hours to wait before it’s available to download.
While MHR has been out on Nintendo Switch for some time now, this will be the first time gamers on a different platform will have a chance to enjoy the game.
As with most Monster Hunter games, Rise requires you to hunt down a plethora of monsters with distinct behaviours and differing difficulties.
Classic monsters are available to slay in Rise, but there are also new creatures that are part of the fresh storyline.
This includes the wyvern Magnamalo, based on Japanese folklore, which provides one of the toughest tests in the game.
Magnamalo is also set to play a large role in the new Monster Hunter Rise Demo going live this week, but there will also be plenty of other challenges to face.
One thing that has been noted is that Monster Hunter Rise on PC is a port of the Nintendo Switch, meaning that the improved textures are limited.
The good news is that the unlimited FPS options available on PC will make it the perfect place to enjoy the intricate hack n slash action.
The demo itself looks like the same one that was launched on Switch earlier this year, meaning it will have a time limit.
Gamers will be able to play the quests to slay Great Izuchi, Mizutsune, or Magnamalo up to 30 times.
Once you run out of remaining tries, all five quest types, including the Basic Training Quest and the Wyvern Riding Training Quest, will become unavailable.
The full description reads: “The new Magnamalo quest is an Advanced difficulty quest, tailor-made for the demo.
“You’ll have to fight it with fixed equipment, making it even tougher than normal, so only the confident need apply!”
WHEN DOES THE MONSTER HUNTER RISE DEMO COME OUT?
