The Monster Hunter Rise 1.1.2 update has arrived, fixing a critical save lock bug that was plaguing unfortunate players along with a few other issues in the game.

Monster Hunter Rise is the latest game in the Monster Hunter franchise, although this one is a bit unusual: it's currently exclusive to the Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately, a handful of players have been affected by a bug that was locking up their save games; now, this (and many other issues) have been fixed in the latest patch.

What's New in the Monster Hunter Rise 1.1.2 Update?

Arguably the biggest fix in the Monster Hunter Rise 1.1.2 update is a resolution to a bug that was detailed late last month. It was a rather strange bug, too, and there wasn't much players could do to prevent it other than having knowledge of what causes the bug in the first place.

Simply put, equipping certain DLC gestures to the action bar could cause your save game to "lock" and be entirely inaccessible. That bug has now been fixed, and any players who have been locked out of their saves should be able to continue where they left off with the latest patch.

A couple of bugs surrounding the game's controls have also been fixed. Previously, receiving a Join Request or performing certain actions after using an updraft in the Lava Caverns could completely lock up your controls; both of these errors have now been fixed.

These are just some of the bigger changes in what is a pretty small patch overall; you can read the full Monster Hunter Rise 1.1.2 update patch notes for all the fine details. If you haven't yet gotten into this game, you can buy Monster Hunter Rise for the Nintendo Switch via its official website starting at $59.99 or your regional equivalent.
