Monster Hunter Rise is set to launch on the Switch March 26th, but players will have another chance check the game out before then. Capcom announced the second free Monster Hunter Rise demo will release on March 11th. On top of this, the publisher gave a glimpse at the title’s first free post-launch update.
The second demo will feature the two training missions and two hunts from the previous demo, as well as a new ” advanced” quest to hunt the game’s flagship monster, the Magnamalo. This demo will also have a play-count limit; you’ll only be able to collectively play the three hunts 30 times.
The demo will support online play, giving you the option to group up with others on the hunts. Of course, you’ll need to have a Nintendo Switch Online subscription to play with fellow Monster Hunter Rise players.
Capcom also released a new trailer for Monster Hunter Rise during the Monster Hunter Digital Event. The video recapped the game’s story and many of the monsters that will be encountered. It also confirmed that two monsters will be returning in Rise: the Nargacuga and the Zinogre.
Capcom finished the trailer with the reveal of Rise’s fir free post-launch addition: the Elder Dragon Chameleos. It will be “one of multiple monsters” arriving as part of a free update for the game in April.
