The upcoming expansion is expected to bolster the latest entry in the popular action-hunting series with new storylines, different locales, and more monsters, as well as new hunting actions and quest ranks. We’ve already glimpsed a new Elgado outpost as well as a royal character with a fancy sword that may be used against Malzeno, the new flagship monster.
With a slated release window of Summer 2022, Sunbreak unlocks late into the original game but is expected to offer a “massive expansion” to players. It will launch with three new amiibo figures, including a special Palamute “Canyne Malzeno X,” a Palico “Felyne Malzeno X,” and Malzeno itself. Each one unlocks a special layered armor when used in Sunbreak.
We awarded Monster Hunter Rise on Switch an 8/10 review, saying it “mixes classic Monster Hunter ideas with some of World’s best improvements and a whole bunch of clever new mechanics of its own.” The base game arrived on PC in January with ultrawide support and a higher framerate. Sunbreak will launch on both formats simultaneously.
