Monsters based on western horror stories

This research center and command post are tasked with stopping the threat to the kingdom.

At the top of the target list are powerful creatures inspired by western horror stories known as the Three Lords. This roster includes the combined elemental powerhouse Garangolm, the sinister Fanged Wyvern Lunagaron, and the vampiric Elder Dragon Malzeno.

In order to face these baleful forces head-on, Hunters arriving at Elgado Outpost must find new ways of fighting. While the village of Kamura is known for its unique wirebug techniques, including silkbind attacks and wyvern riding, hunters summoned to the kingdom will learn new switch abilities for all 14 weapons, allowing for a variety of new weapon actions .

In addition, they can now bring two different switch skills that can be swapped out during the hunt with the new "Switch Skill Swap". The added flexibility of choosing the best skills for each situation allows a skilled hunter to overcome almost any obstacle. If the hunters are attacked while performing a Switch Skill Swap, they can also dodge in any direction to avoid danger or reposition for another attack.

Exploring the behavior of the three lords takes you across the kingdom to exciting new and reimagined locations, including the newly revealed citadel and the returning jungle. The Citadel features snow-capped peaks that drop into lush forests teeming with new endemic life forms. At the center of this vast region is a long-abandoned fortress that serves as a bulwark to the monsters it was designed to keep out. A return from the second generation of Monster Hunter titles, the jungle features a warm climate with abundant rainfall, making it a paradise for the monsters and plants that call it home.

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak also offers game fans new ways to befriend the game's charming characters through new follower quests. These single player hunts allow you to take on and complete quests with your favorite characters. Each follower has their own specialization and can even help the game fans by restoring their health, setting traps and even riding monsters to turn the tide of battle. Elgado Outpost members such as Fiorayne, Luchika, Jae, Admiral Galleus, and Master Arlow are now available to follow, as are Kamura Village members such as Hinoa and Minoto. As the story progresses, more followers will be unlocked and there are even exclusive rewards for completing follower quests.

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is coming to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows, PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 with all post-launch content up to Free Title Update 3 (Ver.13) featuring harrowing encounters like Chaotic Gore Magala contains. Information on the release of future free title updates will be announced at a later date.
