Capcom has revealed details regarding the final Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak update, which will also serve as the last Monster Hunter Rise content update overall. The update is landing tomorrow on Switch and Steam, and is bringing the fearsome Primordial Malzeno monster to fight, as well as new Event Quests and more.

Announced last week, the final Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak digital showcase aired earlier today, revealing details about the final monster headed to Monster Hunter Rise. Primordial Malzeno can be battled from MR 10, serving as a corrupted version of the ordinarily noble Malzeno. Tainted by Qurio, Primordial Malzeno uses "underhanded" tactics according to Capcom, and its Bloodlust state makes it even more terrifying.

In addition to Primordial Malzeno, new Event Quests will be added through July 27th, giving you the chance to take on some "very tough" challenges. You can earn new layered armor for your hunter, too, so it's worth taking on these challenges if you want a new look.

The new Bonus Update will also include extra paid DLC for "an affordable price", according to Capcom. These packs will come in a variety of different themes and will include new layered armor sets, new hunter voices, and new stickers, as well as extra weapons. You can see a full rundown of Sunbreak's paid DLC options here.

If you're playing on PC (and not on Steam), Xbox, or PlayStation, then the content from this new update, as well as content from the previous two updates, will be released as a single update on August 24th. Of course, it'll all still be free. More info on this is coming your way soon, according to Capcom.

Since this is the final Monster Hunter Rise update, the conclusion of the showcase also features a developer roundtable in which director Yasunori Ichinose joins producer Ryozo Tsujimoto and Sunbreak director Yoshitake Suzuki in order to discuss the game and its development process. Make sure to give it a watch if you're interested in behind-the-scenes gossip!

Monster Hunter Rise is available right now on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch. Sunbreak is also available across all of these platforms. If you're just getting started on your monster hunting journey, then you've got a lot of slaying ahead of you, so why not take a look at our guides to get you started?
