When CEOs are letting employees take a day off for Monster Hunter Rise, you can tell people are excited for Capcom's latest entry. Just ahead of launch, Capcom has revealed it will be releasing a day one patch for Rise.

Coming in at 600MB, it's thankfully quite a small one, and if you've opted for a digital copy, that adds up to about 8GB memory space. Aside from a few unspecified bug fixes, this patch mainly grants access to content within the Deluxe kit, also unlocking pre-order and amiibo bonuses.

Calling this Version 1.1.1, there's not much else here, and Capcom issued these patch notes:

Main Additions / Changes
Access to the content from the Deluxe Kit, as well as the add-on content from pre-order bonuses and amiibo bonuses.

Bug Fixes / Miscellaneous
Miscellaneous bug fixes have been made.

We had excellent things to say in our Rise review. Awarding it 9/10 stars, we called it "a new high-water mark for the franchise", and other publications are similarly impressed. If you're looking to distract yourself until Friday, why not check out recent feature on Monster Hunter's history.
