Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

Capcom’s Monster Hunter Rise has received a substantial number of updates since release but a new paid expansion, Sunbreak, is out next year. It’s fairly large, adding new locales, a new storyline and a new sinister-looking Elder Dragon named Malzeno. Master Rank is also being added as a new quest rank and will provide even tougher fights than the base game.

As per Capcom on Twitter, players will also encounter “more powerful versions of monsters that you clashed with in #MHRise” with some even having new attacks. It also noted that the “Sunbreak” is derived from imagery in “the game’s story, such as the visual of the sun shining down on the world through the clouds!” How this factors into the story – especially given the sky turning blood-red due to Malzeno’s influence – remains to be seen. Perhaps a hint at the true final boss?

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak releases in Summer 2022 for PC and Nintendo Switch. The base game releases on January 12th 2022 for PC via Steam but there’s a free demo currently available where players can battle Magnamalo, Mizutsune and Great Izuchi. Progress doesn’t transfer to the final game but you do get an unlimited number of tries, unlike the limited-time Nintendo Switch demos.
