All About Monster Hunter Rise Game
The hunters of Kamura brace themselves for the approaching riot, armed with the latest weapons in their arsenal: the Palamute hunting colleagues and the Wirebug grappling mechanic. As they charged into battle, with the Canyne Palamutes joining forces with the beloved Felyne Palicoes. Together, they make a challenging team, aiding the players as they engage in heart-pumping, action-packed combat.
Palamutes, strong and sturdy beasts, lent their mighty offensive powers to the fight. They not only join in on the action but also carry hunters on their backs for a swift chase after fleeing monsters and speedy travels through the vast maps. Now, imagine the agility and versatility of the Wirebugs, allowing hunters to gracefully grapple in any direction during a hunt.
These tiny insects can be paired with any of the 14 weapon types, creating a world of unique and powerful “Silkbind Attacks.” With these new attacks, monsters are left vulnerable, making way for the thrilling technique of “Wyvern Riding.” Players can take control of a monster and engage in spectacular battle sequences, adding a whole new level of excitement to the hunt.
Players will travel through five breathtaking locations in Monster Hunter Rise, including the Sandy Plains, Flooded Forest, and Shrine Ruins. As you explore, you’ll be met with monstrous challenges that will put your hunting skills to the test. But wait, there’s more! Get ready to team up with the brave citizens of Kamura Village as you take on the all-new Rampage quest type.
With weapons in hand, you’ll fortify the Stronghold barricades and prepare for the impending invasion of monstrous beasts, including the fearsome Apex monsters. As you progress through the game, you’ll unlock the game-changing “Switch Skills” for each weapon. Imagine the possibilities as you mix and match these skills with existing Silkbind or regular attacks, creating unique combos and strategies that suit your playstyle.
