Monster Hunter Rise system requirements

You won't need a monstrous GPU or CPU to play the latest Monster Hunter title, and most hunters' gaming PCs should be readily equipped to join in on expeditions

It doesn’t matter whether it’s the Switch version or its jump to PC, Monster Hunter Rise is the best in the series to date, and we can’t wait for the hunt to commence. Like any good hunter, you first need to make sure your gaming PC is equipped and prepared to deal with the game’s monsters before taking on a Rathalos, which is where the Monster Hunter Rise system requirements come in.

Despite starting out as a Nintendo Switch title, the Monster Hunter Rise system requirements are slightly more demanding than 2018’s Monster Hunter: World. You can already get a feel for how the game will perform with your current rig by playing its demo on Steam. However, this likely won’t be entirely reflective of the title’s performance when the Monster Hunter Rise release date rolls around tomorrow.

One thing we know for certain is that Monster Hunter Rise won’t feature cross-play or cross-save, so you can’t bring your progress to and from your consoles, unfortunately.

Here are the Monster Hunter Rise PC system requirements:

Minimum Recommended
OS Windows 10 64-Bit Windows 10 64-Bit
CPU Intel i3-4130
AMD FX-6100
Intel i5-4460
AMD FX-8300
DirectX 12 12
GPU Nvidia Geforce GT 1030
AMD Radeon RX 550
Nvidia Geforce GT 1060
AMD Radeon RX 570
Storage 23GB 23GB

Capcom has helpfully provided some performance expectations alongside the game’s system requirements. Those targeting the Minimum skew can expect 30fps at 1080p using the ‘Low’ settings, while players closer to the Recommended specs will enjoy 30fps at 1080p with ‘Average’ graphics settings. However, those with the best graphics cards can expect to run the game at much higher resolutions and will be able to boost fps well above 30.
