Nintendo announces Monster Hunter Rise expansion Sunbreak for 2022

Get ready to slay even more monsters in this massive expansion.

What you need to know

  • Nintendo revealed a major expansion for Monster Hunter Rise called Sunbreak.
  • This expansion, which is called “massive,” will launch sometime in Summer 2022.
  • We’re getting new stories, new monsters, and a new quest rank.

The very first thing revealed at today’s Nintendo Direct was a “massive expansion” for Monster Hunter Rise called Sunbreak. This new expansion will launch on Nintendo Switch and PC in Summer 2022. Nintendo has also revealed what kinds of things players can expect when the game does launch.

The initial trailer showed what was presumably one of the new monsters, a massive dragon, attacking a Rathalos, underneath a blood-red sky. Another promotional image shows the Hunter and their Palamute getting ready to face off against that same dragon.

In a follow-up tweet, Nintendo revealed that the game will contain “New stories, new locales, new monsters, new hunting actions, [and] new quest rank.”

There’s no other new information about the game, other than a tentative release date. However, since Capcom also revealed that the expansion would be coming to PC, that presumably means that the game will be launched on PC sometime before then. That’s in keeping with the general release window we’ve heard about previously.
