PSA: Monster Hunter Rise has a save lockout glitch, and Capcom is ‘aware’ of it

‘Please avoid setting these gestures to the action bar’

Monster Hunter Rise seems to be selling well, but now that millions of people have their hands on it, they’re starting to discover little nuances: good and bad. In this case it’s kind of bad.

The bug is none other than a save lockout situation, which is incredibly scary for some folks who have already put in a lot of time with it. Capcom doesn’t outright say that it “deletes” your data or anything like that, it can just “prevent you from opening it.” I know! But it seems fixable and Capcom is on the case.

Here’s the full statement from Capcom so you have all the info: “We’re aware of an issue with the Action/Hurt Pose DLC gestures where setting either to the action bar and quitting the game can cause an error preventing you from opening the same save file the next time you launch the game. We’re working on an update to fix this ASAP.”

In the meantime, Capcom suggests that you “avoid” these gestures via the action bar and/or remove them ASAP from yourself now, before the bug occurs. Capcom then clarified later that “this also occurs when setting the action/hurt pose to the radial menu.”

As a refresher, Monster Hunter Rise has a host of voiced lines, emotes, and pictures that help facilitate online groups and break the language barrier. The Action/Hurt pose is one of those actions you can do in-game. Be careful!
