There were many big game releases last year, but one of the bigger surprises was that of Monster Hunter Rise. The latest in the franchise from Capcom that started out on the Nintendo Switch before being ported over to PC. The game dominated sales charts in Japan and beyond, and impressed people with the mechanics that were made due to it being on the Nintendo Switch. The game kept the challenge of the other mainline titles, and now, it’s getting ready for the release of its first major DLC pack: Sunbreak.
This content will feature you going outside of your own village and aiding a knight in order to stop other monsters. This means you’ll have new characters to meet, items to get, and of course, monsters to fight.
And with it coming out on June 30th, that means you won’t have to wait too long to get it!
Check out the trailer below!

Here’s the synopsis of the new content:
“The threat befalling the Kingdom is closely linked to powerful creatures inspired by staples of Western horror known as the Three Lords,” today’s announcement from Capcom reads in part. “This cadre includes the newly unveiled Garangolm, the chilling Fanged Wyvern Lunagaron, and the Elder Dragon Malzeno. In addition to these nightmarish new foes, other monster variants and returning fan-favorites including Blood Orange Bishaten and the mighty Astalos will emerge to challenge hunters in the added Master Rank quest difficulty. Researching the behavior of the Three Lords will take hunters across the Kingdom to exciting new locales, including the newly-unveiled Citadel. This locale boasts snow-swept peaks cascading down to lush forests teeming with new forms of endemic life. At the center of this vast region sits a long-abandoned fortress that serves as a bastion for the very monsters it was built to keep out.”
