Capcom’s free Monster Hunter Rise demo will be phased out of the Nintendo Switch eShop soon. The demo will only be available to download and play until 1 a.m. PT / 3 a.m. ET on February 1, which will only give you a few more days to try it out if you haven’t already.

The demo includes four quests: two training missions that explain the controls and mechanics of the game, and two appropriate hunts. The “beginner” hunt asks you to kill the Grand Izuchi, one of the new monsters making their debut in Rise, while the “intermediate” hunt sends you to kill the returning Mizutsune. The demo also lets you sample the Wirebug and Palamute, which we thought were groundbreaking additions to the series.

The demo supports local and online play with up to three other players. To take advantage of this latter feature, you must have a Nintendo Switch Online membership. If you don’t have one, however, Nintendo is currently offering a seven-day free trial of the service for a limited time.

While your progress from the demo won’t affect the full game, anyone with demo save data on their system will unlock a free item booster in Monster Hunter Rise when it launches. The pack includes a handful of items that will help you get started on the adventure. You will receive the following:

Monster Hunter Rise launches for Nintendo Switch on March 26.
