Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak

Capcom has announced Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak title update 6 is launching tomorrow, with the console ports getting updates a bit later.

The sixth free content update is launching on June 8th for PC (via Steam) and Nintendo Switch, with title updates 4, 5, and 6 coming later for Xbox and PlayStation platforms on August 24th.

Here’s a rundown on the new update, plus a new trailer:

The Free Bonus Update features the final monster coming to the massive expansion, Primordial Malzeno, a number of changes to armor augmentations and decorations, and challenging new Event Quests releasing through July 27. It was also announced that all the content from Title Updates 4, 5, and the Free Bonus Update will arrive as a single package for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows, PlayStation®5, and PlayStation®4 on August 24, 2023.

The story of Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak was originally intended to end with the climactic clash of Kamura’s forces against Amatsu in Free Title Update 5, however, the Free Bonus Update concludes the age-old relationship between the Elder Dragon Malzeno and the Kingdom. Starting at Master Rank level 10, Primordial Malzeno brings new ferocious attacks and moves for hunters to contend with and offers victorious hunters parts for a unique new armor set and weapons. Following the launch of the Free Bonus Update on June 8, Event Quests boasting greater challenges and even more exciting rewards will continue to release until July 27. While no new Paid DLC will release with the Free Bonus Update, the existing DLC is being bundled in new themed sets at affordable prices. Players on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4 will be able to experience all content from Title Updates 4, 5, and the Bonus Update on August 24, 2023.

The remainder of the final Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak Digital Event opened up to a developer roundtable discussing almost two years of Monster Hunter Rise and the Sunbreak expansion. In it, Tsujimoto and Suzuki were joined by Rise Director Yasunori Ichinose to discuss a wide range of topics, including how player feedback impacted the development team, their favorite characters and a thank you to the fans who have inspired them to constantly strive for new and exciting Monster Hunter experiences. With Monster Hunter celebrating its 20th anniversary next year, the trio looks forward to the series’ bright future.
