Capcom shared more information about Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak during a Monster Hunter Digital Event. This included the reveal of two new subspecies of monsters and the return of the Seregios. However, one of the more notable additions in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak is the ability to take NPCs on single-player hunts known as Follower Quests. The developers revealed that taking on single-player with NPCs will also yield unique rewards.
Additionally, certain Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak NPCs will be available depending on the region you are hunting in for the Follower Quests. For example, Hinoa and Minoto will be able to accompany Hunters when they are pursuing monsters in the Kamura region for theirs. NPCs that will accompany players on them in Elgado, the new region in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak, include Fiorayne, Luchika, Jae, Admiral Galleus, and Master Arlow. More characters will be available to select as you progress through the game.
Each of these NPCs will have specific behaviors, and unique abilities. One of these abilities were shown during the Monster Hunter Digital Event, which included a character laying a trap. Also, every character will have their own weapon specialty. An archived version of the broadcast is immediately available to watch. The Follower Quest segment begins at 37 minutes.
Monster Hunter Rise is available for the PC and Nintendo Switch. Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak will release for the PC and Nintendo Switch on June 30, 2022. A Digital Deluxe Edition is available to pre-order. Capcom has shared the perquisites required in order to access content in the expansion.
