Steam has shared the release date and time for when Monster Hunter Rise will come out on PC, and – although its preload status is disappointing – you can buy it now to get pre-order bonuses.

Capcom’s newest instalment in their legendary series has been available on Nintendo Switch since March 2021. Although Switch fans have been able to enjoy the game exclusively for several months, a review roundup from Nintendo Life suggests that the forthcoming port is superior.

Fans have eagerly awaited its arrival on computers since day one of its Nintendo debut, and the good news is that it will launch on Steam tomorrow.

What time does Monster Hunter Rise come out on PC?

The release date and time countdown says that Monster Hunter Rise will come out on PC at 08:00 PT, 11:00 ET, and 16:00 GMT on January 12th.

All of the above hours come courtesy of Steam which says that it will launch in one day and seven hours as of 09:00 GMT on January 11th. Capcom haven’t shared a launch schedule at all.

A demo for computers has been available since October, and you can play it now if you’re a potential series newcomer who isn’t fully certain about the game and whether it tickles your fancy.

Can you preload Monster Hunter Rise?

You cannot preload Monster Hunter Rise on PC from Steam.

This isn’t awfully surprising as there wasn’t a pre-download option for World or its Iceborne expansion. Still, it’s disappointing that fans cannot download the game right now as it prevents players from enjoying the game the very second it launches.
