In a post shared to the Discord(opens in new tab) official blog, the company announced a partnership with Capcom to reward players who stream Monster Hunter Rise to their friends starting September 29.

Players have to use the «Go Live» feature to share Rise or Sunbreak gameplay with their friends on the platform. This is the first time that Discord has implemented this kind of incentive-based streaming promotion.

The post indicates that rewards become available to the streamer after no more than 30 minutes of play. The blog post did not specify an end date for the promotion⁠—The official last day of fall this year is December 20, spiritually, I think we can all agree it's November 30, and I would assume the promo will run through October.

It's an interesting idea, but I find myself conflicted on it. In a vacuum, it's a relatively harmless bit of promo tie-in⁠—get a friend or two on call to catch up, grind out some hunts, get the reward, a cute little fall outfit.
