Capcom announced at its summer showcase that the demo for its upcoming expansion, Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, is launching on June 14. The demo launches on both PC and Nintendo Switch.

Sunbreak, which releases on June 30, is a massive expansion of Rise, which adds several monsters, including those from previous games such as Gore Magala, Daimyo Hermitaur, and Espinas.

Those who play the demo will access the jungle region, as well as the monsters Malzeno and Astalos, a new skill switch swap, and new quests. It offers multiplayer for teams of up to four.

In addition to the demo, Capcom also revealed Sunbreak will receive several updates, which include new monsters and items well into 2023. The first, which comes in August, adds the Lucent Nargacuga to the game.
