Monster Hunter Rise PS5 PS4 PlayStation 5 1

There’ll be no physical version of Monster Hunter Rise when it launches on PS5 and PS4 early next year. The port of the critically acclaimed Nintendo Switch and PC release was hastily announced last week, following a series of leaks. However, physical fans may need to curb their enthusiasm, as publisher Capcom has confirmed to Gematsu there’ll be no boxed copies on PlayStation platforms. This means you’ll need to download the title from the PS Store.

Of course, with the enormous Sunbreak expansion not due out until Spring 2023, our guess is that a Complete Edition will launch physically later in the year. Therefore, we’d recommend you sit tight for a few months if you’d prefer to own the game on Blu-ray.
