About the Monster Hunter Rise Demo
The free, limited-time demo is available now through January 31st. This gives players ample time to enjoy a sampling of this all-new Monster Hunter experience. The demo provides players with numerous hunting options. Go it alone with offline solo play or up to four-player local offline. Go online with friends in multiplayer gameplay using all 14 weapon types. The following modes and quests are available in the free demo:
Training – Learn the basics of monster hunting, including an introduction to the new Wirebug mechanic and Palamute riding. Solo play only.
Wyvern Riding – Enter an arena to experience Wyvern Riding, a new feature that allows hunters to ride and guide monsters for a period of time. Solo play only.
Beginner Quest: Great Izuchi – Ideal for first time players or hunters who need a refresher course. Solo play, local multiplayer and online multiplayer.
Intermediate Quest: Mizutsune – A fierce challenge for experienced players only. Solo play, local multiplayer and online multiplayer.
NOTE: The Monster Hunter Rise demo provides hunters with a total of 30 quest attempts. These are shared between both (beginner and intermediate) quests. The Tutorial and Wyvern Riding training do not count against the 30 quest limit, but those modes cannot be accessed after the limit is reached.
