Capcom has brought good tidings for players of the PC version of Monster Hunter Rise. On Feb. 24, 2022, the PC version will receive the ver.3.9.0 title update. This update contains the "Black Belt" armor set, the "Defender" weapons, and the "Veteran's Talisman" to help new players get through the beginning portions of the game.
In addition, ver.3.9.0 also includes all the content updates for the Nintendo Switch version up until this title update. This means that January's USJ (Universal Studios Japan) collaboration quests, gameplay adjustments, bug fixes, and paid cosmetic DLC will be implemented into the PC version. The PC port of Monster Hunter Rise will also get a new HDR setting in this update that is not available in the Nintendo Switch version.
Capcom has stated that following ver.3.9.0., the developer will continue syncing future title updates for both versions of Monster Hunter Rise. This means players on both PC and Nintendo Switch will be able to enjoy future updates simultaneously, avoiding the previous delay on PC content. This could also be an indicator that the upcoming paid DLC expansion, Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak will be released for the PC and Nintendo Switch on the same day.
Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak currently has a tentative release window for the summer of 2022. This expansion will take players to a new locale where they will obtain new weapon skills to hunt monsters inspired by European folklore like the vampiric Malzeno.
