[Update #2]: PC version of Monster Hunter Rise will launch with seemingly all of the Switch's post-launch content.

[Update]: Monster Hunter Rise's free PC demo has now been unleashed onto Steam, nearly three months ahead of launch.

After spending a fair few months exclusively on the Switch, Monster Hunter Rise is now slowly getting ready to make its way to PC as well. According to Capcom's newest announcement, you can expect to see it arrive onto Steam this January 12, 2022!

While the exact details are still few and far between, the PC version will bring with it a variety of optimizations and graphical improvements, including things like support for 4K resolutions, high-res textures, uncapped framerates and ultrawide support. What all of this looks like in actual gameplay, that you can find out through the recently posted trailer. Have a gander:
