On Friday and Monday, CAPCOM began streaming five more videos previewing the new weapon moves available in the Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak expansion for the Monster Hunter Rise game.
On June 30, the expansion will be available for Switch and PC via Steam.
Players who already own Monster Hunter Rise can purchase the expansion as DLC. There is also a set that includes the base game as well as the Sunbreak expansion. The game will also receive three new amiibo, which will unlock new costume sets.
In preparation for the new expansion, the base game will receive a title update on June 30.
Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak will feature an entirely new story, as well as new locations to visit and gameplay mechanics. It will introduce the new Elder Dragon Malzeno as well as the new Master Rank. The Shogun Ceanataur from Monster Hunter 2 will also return, as will several other monsters from previous games in the series, including Monster Hunter 4's Seregios, as well as two new monsters, Magma Almudron and Aurora Somnacanth.
Monster Hunter Rise was released on the Nintendo Switch in March 2021, and on PC via Steam on January 12. The game has sold over 8 million copies worldwide, both physically and digitally.
As of September 30, the franchise's games had shipped a total of 78 million units.
