Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is an upcoming DLC expansion that, unlike Rise's previous free content updates, will be a paid expansion. However, like Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, Sunbreak promises to double the base game's content with new gameplay mechanics, new weapons to forge, and more monsters to slay. But this time Sunbreak's original monsters will be inspired by European mythology like the vampiric Elder Dragon, Malzeno.
It's unclear what kind of monsters will be shown off during the event, although Capcom is expected to announce that the PC version of Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak be released simultaneously as the Nintendo Switch version, following continued parity between platforms. We will have to tune in on March 15 to find out. The event will be streamed on Capcom's official Monster Hunter Twitch Channel, starting at 9:00 a.m. (ET) / 7:00 a.m. (PDT) / 14:00 p.m. (GMT) on the day.
