Everything New in the Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak Digital Event (August 2022

Free title update 1.0 is coming to Monster Huntner Rise: Sunbreak on August 10. This update brings along plenty of new content for fans to sink their teeth into. The free title update brings four new monster variants to hunt. Introduced in Sunbreak, monster variants are different versions of monsters you’ve already seen. For instance, in Sunbreak, the Blood Orange Bishaten is a more complex and altered fight from the base Bishaten found in Rise. These new twists on familiar fights are challenging and take the skill of learning an entirely new set of mechanics.

In title update 1, we will see the following new monster variants:

  • Seething Bazelgeuse
  • Silver Rathalos
  • Gold Rathian
  • Lucent Nargacuga

There will also be a new area in Monster Hunter Rise called the Forlorn Arena, originally for Monster Hunter Freedom Unite. All of these fights will have new armor that has a bevy of new skills to add to your customization options when fighting.

All four will feature new twists and turns on the more basic fights players expect. On top of those, there will also be weekly event quests starting on August 18. You’ll gain exclusive rewards for completing these events.

Anomaly Quests are available after beating Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak and are Master Rank 10. You’ll then be able to take on these quests against afflicted monsters. Continue to upgrade your Master Rank to unlock more Anomaly Quests. In the current version of the game, you’ll be able to take on Anomaly Quests up to the A4 star rank. This reaches all the way to master Rank 50.

Unique materials from these quests will allow players to upgrade the weapons to rarity ten. Four new elements have been added in this update.

Anomaly investigations have a set level; as the level increases, the monsters become stronger. All of the quest conditions are randomly decided. New upgrades will be unlocked through these investigations. There is also a new Qurious armor and weapons crafting. These allow you to apply a random upgrade to your gear.

There will be a new layered armor DLC that is paid. This will allow players to use these new sets to make their characters look like certain NPCs. Fiorayne’s armor and voice will be one of these new DLC options.
