Having been a Switch exclusive for most of the year, we knew a PC release was eventually coming, but exactly when was unknown and whether it would include any improvements specifically for PC players…

Thankfully, Capcom has curbed some of those woes, as Monster Hunter Rise officially launches for PC via Steam on January 12th 2022. This will also include all content released thus far on the Switch version, as well as the usual 4K visual improvements, ultrawide screen support, a wealth of graphics options, keyboard and mouse support, and even voice chat.
