Can I Play Monster Hunter Rise Offline on PC?

Monster Hunter Rise has just been released on PC through Steam. With that said, you are able to play the game in offline mode and will be able to access quests and stories. However, since the game is primarily meant to be played online, there are a few caveats that we’re going to be talking about too.

To open the game in offline mode, you’ll either need to disconnect your Internet connection or head on to Steam’s preferences and restart it in offline mode. In both cases, you’ll be able to play Monster Hunter Rise offline and complete the story. We have also covered how to fix controller issues and crash at launch problems with this game, in case you needed help with that.

Does Monster Hunter Rise Have Offline Mode?

Short answer, yes! You are able to play the game and complete it completely offline with no caveats in terms of your progress being hindered. However, there still are a few issues you’ll have to be aware of.

Firstly, you’ll have access to all the game’s quests and stories. However, the game itself is made for cooperative, team play. So, in the two main types of quests, Village Quests and Hub Quests, not all of them can easily be completed alone.

In terms of Village Quests, which are considered as the main plotline, they can be done alone if you are above average. However, the difficulty of Hub quests indicates that they were meant for multiplayer which means that they can be problematic to complete alone.

However, in the end, it is mostly down to personal preference and whether you’d like a solo playthrough or would want to team up against friends. Some fights like the Crimson Glow require multiple players to take down. But, with enough practice, you alone can do it too.

Note: In case your are stuck with the “Failed to Save” error on Steam, here is how to fix it.


In short, you’ll be able to play Monster Hunter Rise on PC in offline mode with no issues whatsoever. However, we still recommend playing with a friend or two for the best experience!
