A couple of days ago, sources claimed that Monster Hunter Rise would be launching on Xbox and PlayStation consoles in early 2023, and that the game would be coming to Xbox Game Pass. Now, Capcom has confirmed exactly that.
Following on from this week's leak, Capcom has confirmed that Monster Hunter Rise will launch on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS4 and PS5 on the 20th of January 2023. Additionally, the game's Sunbreak expansion will launch on those platforms in Spring 2023.
On day-one, the game will be available to play on Xbox Game Pass for PC and console, although the Sunbreak expansion will be sold separately and is not included with the Game Pass subscription.
Monster Hunter Rise first launched for Nintendo Switch in 2021, garnering plenty of praise. It then launched on PC in 2022, followed by the Sunbreak expansion for both platforms.
KitGuru Says: I spent most of my time with Monster Hunter Rise on the Switch, but with the game now coming to Game Pass, I'll almost certainly be switching over to PC or Xbox. Are you planning on picking this up in the new year?
