Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak expansion Title Update 4 launches February 7


Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak expansion Title Update 4 will be launched on February 7, Capcom announced.

Here’s a rundown of the update, via the official website:

Free Title Update 4 (Version 14)

  • New Samples
    • Velkhana – Known as the “Ice Dragons that Freezes All” or the “Iceborne Wyvern”, few records of Velkhana exist. As such, they remain shrouded in mystery. Their icy breath is so cold that it can form huge ice walls and spires out of thin air, and it’s even powerful enough to freeze other monsters. Some reports indicate that Velkhana will freeze their rivals to establish their domain.
    • Risen Crimson Glow Valstrax – Risen Crimson Glow Valstrax are elder dragons who have found a way to overcome their affliction. Suppressing the Qurio virus has given them great strength and new abilities. Their abundance of dragon energy has given them greater agility and even more devastating explosive powers. Very few will be able to withstand their savage attacks. When their anger reaches its peak, they will enter their resurrected state and their bodies will begin to glow.
  • Anomaly Investigation Missions – Meet new challenges and rewards in Anomaly Research Quests, including:
    • New monsters including Risen Crimson Glow Valstrax.

Roadmap for free title updates

  • April 2023 – Free title update 5 (version 15) including a returning Elder Dragon and a more powerful monster.

And here are some more details, via Capcom:

An icy force of nature few scientists have ever seen is making its way to the Frost Islands. Velkhana, the elusive Elder Dragon who debuted as the flagship monster of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, has been noticed by the scouts of Elgado Outpost. This monster’s gracefully cold demeanor foreshadows the serene stillness of the many creatures left frozen in its wake. By icing the surrounding water into the air, Velkhana is able to form massive ice pillars during combat, freezing even the hottest of fighters. Winter winds often bring bad news and the arrival of Risen Crimson Glow Valstrax proves this adage true. Exactly what this resurrected elder dragon is capable of remains a mystery, as it is considered too dangerous to study. Hunters looking to collect more data for their relentlessly curious science teams can take on Velkhana from 10 MR and Risen Crimson Glow Valstrax from 160 MR. skills.

The Qurio curious will also have new Anomaly Research at their fingertips, with Afflicted Chaotic Gore Magala joining the A8★ Quests, and the Anomaly Investigation cap rising to 220. Elder Dragons will appear from difficulty 111, so be ready for battle ! Event Quests continue to arrive every week, including two new Dual Threat quests featuring Seething Bazelgeuse and Chaotic Gore Magala, in addition to an Arena Quest featuring Furious Rajang and Scorned Magnamalo. Each Event Quest has its own unique reward, so be sure to try them out.

Free Title Update 4 also brings a variety of new paid DLC, including layered armor for rookie fighter Lance Gunn and the venerable Ran Page. These cute scribbles, hand drawn by underrated talent Minoto, have been featured since the release of Monster Hunter Rise and help new hunters understand the ins and outs of Kamura Village. Speaking of Minoto, players can also purchase the “Minoto” layered armor set in addition to new gestures, poses, stickers, music, and fighter voices. To celebrate the release of Free Title Update 4, players can also sign up for early access to a free Palamute layered armor that allows their furry friends to take on the appearance of the Elder Dragon Velkhana! Visit the official Monster Hunter website for more information on how to log in with a Capcom ID.

The Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak expansion is available now for Switch and PC via Steam, and will be coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One this spring.
