Does Monster Hunter Rise have crossplay?

No, Monster Hunter Rise does not support crossplay between PC, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation. This means that if you’re playing on an Xbox, you can only team up with other players on Xbox and not with anyone on PC, Nintendo Switch, or PlayStation.

Having said that, Monster Hunter Rise does support cross-gen play so if you’re on the same platform, you can team up with other players regardless of their generation. For instance, if you’re a PlayStation 4 player, you can play with PlayStation 5 players, and if you’re an Xbox One player, you can team up with Xbox Series X/S users.

Last but not least, if you’re on PC or Nintendo Switch, you can’t team up with anyone who’s not playing on the same platform as you.

Is there cross-save in Monster Hunter Rise?

No, Monster Hunter Rise does not support cross-save which allows you to save and continue your progress across different platforms such as Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, and PC. Hence, if you’re playing Monster Hunter Rise on a PlayStation, you cannot save the game and continue from the same point on an Xbox console, PC, or Nintendo Switch.

Capcom has officially declared that it won’t add cross-play and cross-save Monster Hunter Rise. Fans can expect these features to be a part of the next game in the series which could be a sequel to Monster Hunter World.
