Monster Hunter Rise will be massively expanded on Switch and PC in 2022

Capcom made a major announcement in the Nintendo Direct demo overnight. The acclaimed and very popular Monster Hunter Rise is expanding.Dubbing Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, “Massive” add-ons will introduce new areas, new monsters and new mission levels.

More interestingly, Sunbreak will also include a new story and new game mechanics. The expansion pack will be launched on both Switch and PC in the summer of 2022. Of course, the PC version is still expected to be released in early 2022. It seems that the content release will be synchronized from then on, although Capcom didn’t specify it.

Unfortunately, the trailer is very short and only serves to set the tone. It shows the purple sky and a huge, menacing dragon-it seems to be a new monster-looking at some ruins. Except for the publicity in the press release, Capcom did not follow up any specific details, but it can be said that it looks a bit unusual.
