Alongside Lucent Nargacuga and Seething Bazelguese, the first Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak update will also introduce a new location called Forlorn Arena, which has been showcased in a new trailer shared last month. Even without the upcoming additions, however, the expansion to the latest entry in the series is a more than worthy purchase, as I highlighted in my review:
With its huge number of new and returning monsters, new gameplay mechanics, and great refinements to the formula, Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is the massive expansion that the latest entry in the series deserved to get. While the jump from High Rank to Master Rank doesn't feel as big as it was in previous entries in the series, Sunbreak does so many things well that most of the hunters traveling to Elgado and the Citadel will hardly be bothered by it.
Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is now available on PC and Nintendo Switch worldwide.
