Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak Receives New Trailer
Capcom released a new trailer for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, its upcoming expansion for Monster Hunter Rise. The minute-long teaser video introduces Elgado, the outpost that will act as the player’s base in the expansion, as well as the new monster Lunagaron.
Sunbreak includes a new storyline, as well as new locations, new monsters, a new quest rank, and new gameplay features. Players will need to have completed the 7-star Hub Quest called “Serpent Goddess of Thunder” to access Sunbreak’s content. Sunbreak will release in summer 2022.
Monster Hunter Rise is the latest mainline title in the series and released for Nintendo Switch in March 2021, with a PC release set for January 12, 2022. The game includes two new major gameplay features — Wyvern Riding and the vertical-movement-assisting Wirebug — while Palamutes join Felynes as support-based companions. It also adds the Rampage, a gameplay mode where players are tasked with defending the village from numerous monsters attacking at once with assistance from defensive emplacements.
