The expansion brings a lot of content to Monster Hunter Rise

The Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak expansion, as Capcom calls it, is a “giant expansion,” and just like Iceborne, the Monster Hunter World expansion, it’s almost a completely new game, with new regions, enemies, weapons, armor, characters, and story.

Sunbreak focuses on the traditional Japanese style of the Kamura village, which is the heart of the base game. The expansion takes the player to a different region, with a more western setting, as the game director himself said it would be. The new hub, Elgado, is somewhat reminiscent of the Monster Hunter World hub.

The base game received a 20+GB update on Steam yesterday, which brought some changes and content, but much of it is for the Sunbreak expansion, even if you haven’t purchased the DLC. The update on Switch was 10GB.

Capcom is promising news for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak until next year, with the main game still receiving news.
