About the Expansion

Introducing Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak!

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is an expansion to the original Monster Hunter Rise.

Featuring improved gameplay and nimble-feeling additions to combat mechanics, unique new monsters and hunting locales, and a new difficulty level in the form of Master Rank quests.

As the hunter who saved Kamura from calamity, you must now journey to the far-off reaches of Elgado, an outpost near a Kingdom beset by a sinister new nemesis—the elder dragon Malzeno!

The Hunt Begins in a Far-off Land…

Kamura Village is finally at peace, having fought off an onslaught of monsters attacks known as the Rampage.

That hard-earned peace is disrupted by the unexpected appearance of the wolf-like monster Lunagaron in the Shrine Ruins.

In the Shrine Ruins, the hunter meets Fiorayne, a knight of the Royal Order. Fiorayne asks for the hunter’s help in investigating why monsters from the Kingdom are becoming violently aggressive and invading other territories, including Kamura. United in mission, they set off for the far-off outpost of Elgado.
