Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak: Trailer, Platforms, Gameplay

Monster Hunter Rise will receive its first paid expansion in 2022. Here’s everything we know about Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak.

Monster Hunter Rise arrived for Nintendo Switch back in January 2021 and shortly after its release on PC in 2022 the game gets its first major expansion. Titled Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak, the expansion adds a brand new chapter that ties into the ending of Monster Hunter Rise.

Think Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak like Monster Hunter World Iceborne, an expansion that brings a new region, story, and monsters, and lets players jump into this one from the last adventure. Here’s everything we know about Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak, including when it’s releasing, on what platforms, and more.


Monster Hunter Sunbreak Monsters

We look forward to seeing new and returning monsters in Sunbreak.

Does Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak have a release date?

Capcom hasn’t announced an official release date yet, but we know Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak is arriving Summer, 2022.


Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak is coming Nintendo Switch and PC.

The base version of Monster Hunter Rise will be released on PC on January 12, 2022. So players have several months to meet up with Switch players before the expansion releases.

Howl at the moon. Could this have something to do with Sunbreak’s story?

The first Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak trailer gives us a first glimpse of the new region, Elgado Island:

The second teaser trailer introduces us to the expansion’s first new monster, the ravenous Lunagaron:

Gameplay Details

Specific Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak gameplay details are limited at this time. However, judging by the title and its predecessors, we think Sunbreak will be the parallel of Monster Hunter World’s Iceborne expansion – except for Monster Hunter Rise.

Like Iceborne, Sunbreak promises to be a sizable expansion, bringing with it a massive new location to explore and new monsters to colonize the region. While Iceborne gave us a snowy winter wonderland, the Sunbreak name suggests we’re about to get somewhere hot and potentially sandy. The trailer also suggests that.

Adding an elements-themed location to Monster Hunter usually means that the creatures we hunt also represent that in some way, so prepare for new/returning monsters that belong in hot climates. The game will feature gameplay similar to Monster Hunter Rise, but we suspect the expansion will also add some new mechanics.

Lunagaron looks mean and probably has something to do with the moon.

Digital event in March

A Monster Hunter: Rise Sunbreak digital event focused on the DLC will be streamed live March 15, 2022 at 14:00 GMT / 7:00 p.m.

The Monster Hunter Digital Event is almost here!

This will be streamed on the official Monster Hunter Twitch channel and will also be uploaded to Capcom’s official YouTube channel.

We envision that the event will give us a much deeper look into the Sunbreak expansion, including all the new monsters we’ll be hunting!
