The 4th Trailer of Monster Hunter Rise is now live! Check out the newly disclosed information, including new monsters and fields, also the details of the Rampage and talismans!

New Fields and Monsters

Field: Lava Caverns

This large cave system is divided into a searing hot area with flowing lava, and a nice cool area with beautifully pure water.
It would be a wonderfully mystical environment if it wasn’t teeming with monsters…

Monsters living in Lava Caverns

• Rakna-Kadaki

This creature’s body is covered in webbing, as if it’s wearing a white gown.
It uses its webs to stop hunters in their tracks, before attacking them with burning gas.

It is always seen carrying its offspring with it. Known as “Rachnoid,” these little creatures provide their mother with support in moving around and catching prey. Be very careful of their combined attacks.

• Basarios

This Flying Wyvern with its characteristic rock-hard carapace returns once again. It burrows underground, mimicking rocks and savaging oblivious prey. It uses the toughness of its hide to devastating effect by charging at its foes.

• Volvidon

This creature, covered in thick red shells tough enough to withstand magma, is back to ruin your day. Its rounded body is perfect for rolling across hot surfaces, and its long tongue is ideal for capturing prey. Its saliva emits a paralyzing toxin that should be

Field: Sandy Plains

A desolate wasteland, filled with aggressive monsters that hunger for flesh and blood.

During the day, the sun beats down on the plains mercilessly, but at night it’s lit up by the cool moonlight.

Monsters living on Sandy Plains

• Almudron

This creature usually keeps to itself deep in the mountains, but recently it has been approaching human habitation and attacking hunters, perhaps because of the Rampage. It’s adept at using mud to attack, and even defends itself by sticking it on its body. From its tail oozes a strange golden fluid, which it uses to dissolve the ground beneath its prey, arresting them in a mire so that it can drag them under.

• Diablos

The unstoppable Tyrant of the Desert returns to claim many a hunter’s life yet again. It is extremely territorial and displays an inordinate amount of aggression towards intruders. It uses its massive horns to charge at its prey, so extreme caution is advised when in the vicinity of this creature.

• Rathian

The series’ most iconic monster is back again to throw fireballs at your face. With powerful legs and a poison-secreting tail, it hunts mainly on the ground, earning it the moniker “”Queen of the Land.

The King of Aggression is back too!

• Rajang

The series’ most prominent purveyor of violence. Few sightings of it are ever reported, mostly because the eyewitnesses do not survive long enough to tell the tale. It is said though, that part of its pelt turns a golden color when it’s angered.

The Rampage is about to start! Protect Kamura Village from the invade of Monsters!

The Rampage is a catastrophic event where countless monsters attack the village all at once. As a hunter, you must confront this horde of monsters.

Hunters are tasked with taking on hordes of monsters using their weapons, Hunting Installations, and the new Wyvern Riding feature, to prevent them from breaking through.

Apexes and Helpful Friends!?

(1) An Apex has reared its ugly head! You can tell by the look of this Apex Arzuros that it boasts a lot more strength than the regular species!

(2) What’s this? Hinoa and Minoto joining the fray? You might find that more of your friends from Kamura Village are willing to help out when the going gets tough!
