Monster Hunter Rise: Title Update v. Patch Notes Now Live Ahead of Expansion’s Release

Sunbreak Expansion
Sunbreak Expansion Steam

A pretty hefty patch for Monster Hunter Rise will be available later today on Nintendo Switch and tomorrow on PC. Title Update v. features content for the upcoming Sunbreak expansion (releasing June 30) and other changes, improvements, and bug fixes.

Once Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak goes live, players can access the new story content after unlocking the Hunter Rank cap. For the uninitiated, this only happens when the final mission of the base game is completed.

Aside from that, Master Rank will be available as well. Players who attain this rank will get new exclusive quests, which pit them against more powerful versions of existing monsters.

For PC-specific changes, players can take advantage of the detailed Photo Mode that adds a few extra options for adjusting the focal length and applying filters in real-time. Monster Hunter Rise is also going to support NVIDIA DLSS technology.

Below are just some of the highlights that players can expect in Title Update v.
