Gear up! New monsters, locales, and abilities await in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak

The world of Monster Hunter Rise is getting even bigger with a monster-ous expansion—Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak.

After being summoned to aid a distant Kingdom, you’ll head out to the bustling maritime waystation, Elgado Outpost. This command post tasked with restoring peace to the realm also houses the laboratory researching monsters.

The threat befalling the Kingdom is closely linked to powerful creatures known as the Three Lords: the newly unveiled Garangolm, the Fanged Wyvern Lunagaron, and the Elder Dragon Malzeno. Research the Three Lords while encountering exciting new locales, including the newly added Citadel locale.

You can enjoy all-new hunts, new and returning monsters, visit new locales, and master all-new Wirebug techniques.


Improved Hunting action: New abilities and endemic life add even more excitement to each hunt.

New monsters: Challenge new monsters, see familiar faces (err…muzzles?), and meet The Three Lords.

Weapons: Try your hand at new actions for each of the 14 different weapon types.

Follower Collab Quests: In these single-player-only hunts, various story characters will join you to help complete quests.

New locales: The Citadel is a new locale centered around the forlorn ruins of an old castle, featuring an array of environments and forest-covered areas to frozen icescapes. The Jungle locale from previous Monster Hunter titles also makes its return.

New characters: Meet new allies in Elgado, an outpost of the Kingdom.

And if you’re on the prowl for even more content, the Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak Deluxe Edition expansion gives you even more content! This version of the expansion comes with the same early purchase bonus, but also contains additional Buddy armor sets, a hunter layered armor set, gestures, and more!

As a reminder, you must own the full version of Monster Hunter Rise in order to play this expansion. Then, the core Sunbreak content will be accessible after completing the 7-star Hub quest, “Serpent Goddess of Thunder.”

Good luck, hunters!
