Nextweek, Capcom will release Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak's first post-launch update

Monster Hunter Rise, which includes Switch and PC versions, is impressive - Eurogamer referred it to as "as good as video games can get" - and its Sunbreak expansion is perhaps even better. More, therefore, is an extremely welcome proposition, and we''ll soon know exactly what''s in store for Sunbreak''s first major post-launch update when it''s newly announced livestream airs next week.

The incoming digital event for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak will be hosted by producer Ryozo Tsujimoto and game director Yoshitake Suzuki, with proceedings expected to begin on Twitch next Tuesday, 9th August, at 3pm BST/7am PDT.

Capcom has already teased a little of what''s going to happen in Title Update 1 for August, with the Seething Bazelguese and Lucent Nargacuga (from Monster Hunter World: Iceborne and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate respectively) both confirmed as new monster additions to the line-up, while the Forlorn Arena will be added as a new locale.

Although Capcom''s previously revealed roadmap left a number of obvious blanks, easing "several other monsters" in Title Update 1, including rare species monsters and special species monsters, and it''s all but guaranteed Tuesday''s will lift the mystery surrounding those.

A release date for Title Update 1 is a certainty, and new DLC cosmetic additions are likely, and we''ll possibly have a few clues about what Title Update 2, due to this "fall" will bring on its arrival.

If you haven''t made the move to Sunbreak yet, it''s well worth your time. When it was released in June, Eurogamer''s Martin Robinson was impressed by the expansion, saying, "Sunbreak is going to be another brutal Monster Hunter expansion, but I''m happy to discover there''s enough balance in there for me to approach it with delight rather than trepidation."
