Over the last few weeks, we’ve had new Monster Hunter Rise videos for weapons in Sunbreak for the Great Sword, Hammer, Insect Glaive, Heavy Bowgun, Sword & Shield, Switch Axe, Hunting Horn, Gunlance, Charge Blade, and Bow, Lance, Long Sword, Dual Blades and Light Bowgun. Read my review of the base game here on Nintendo Switch and here on PC. At the Capcom Showcase, we got a new trailer for the game and the reveal of the roadmap with a demo coming very soon. The Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak demo download is available now on Nintendo Switch and Steam. The demo includes multiple quests with varying difficulty. Watch the Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak demo trailer below:

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak demo – how to download
On the Monster Hunter Rise (not Sunbreak) eShop page, select download demo and then choose the Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak demo from the new menu. You might get an eShop error because the servers are getting hammered, but the demo will begin downloading like it did for me.

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak update roadmap for 2023 and 2022
The Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak update roadmap is below:
Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak physical edition release
There will be a bundle of the base game and Sunbreak. This includes the Standard Edition of Monster Hunter Rise and the Sunbreak expansion (included as a digital voucher in the physical version). The same edition has been confirmed for North America, Europe, and Japan. It is disappointing that the expansion is a digital code.
Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak adds new monsters, returning monsters like Astalos, subspecies, and new locales like the Citadel in addition to new quests, a Master Rank, gameplay elements, and more. This is the Iceborne / Master Rank / G Rank / Ultimate equivalent for Monster Hunter Rise. If you missed the Collector’s Edition news, read this. Check out the official website here. I’m curious to see what Capcom reveals after the new Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak weapon videos for each weapon are live.
Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak releases in on June 30 for PC and Nintendo Switch. Monster Hunter Rise is out now worldwide on Nintendo Switch and is out on January 12, 2022 for PC via Steam.
