Monster Hunter Rise is already, er, rising up the Steam charts, and is now sitting well-nestled within the platform’s top ten games. Either way, it seems players have been eager to ditch the visual limitations of the Switch to get a smoother and sharper version of Rise – and maybe we’ll get the best of both worlds at the Steam Deck release date.
Monster Hunter Rise hit a peak concurrent player count of 90,773 just a handful of hours after launch today, as SteamDB shows. That’s the eighth-biggest peak on the platform today, putting rise just between hits like Rust and New World. That impressive record is, however, no match for its predecessor – Monster Hunter World reached a peak of 240,872 players on its release date, and that peak rose to 334,684 a few days after launch.
In our Monster Hunter Rise PC review, Dave awards it a 9/10, and suggests that “If you haven’t played a Monster Hunter game yet, this is the best one to start with.” Other scores have been similarly positive.
