Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak expansion beats its old concurrent players record on Steam

Monster Hunter Rise‘s new expansion, Sunbreak, went live on Thursday morning and already the latest addition to Capcom’s award-winning, top-selling series is setting records; the game achieved its highest number of concurrent players, 194,459, according to its SteamDB data. The number of concurrent players for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is noticeably higher than concurrent player count for Monster Hunter Rise itself, whose launch week numbers reached 134,262.


The Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak expansion sees players embarking on an adventure in the far-off outpost of Elgado where they’ll face all-new monsters, obtain up to fourteen new weapon types, take on quests in collaboration with a variety of new follower characters and utilize a slew of new abilities. The game also features a new difficulty level via Master Rank quests.

New monsters that players will face off against include “The elder dragon Malzeno, the powerful and boulder-like Garangolm, and the icy wolf-like Lunagaron,” who together comprise an infamous triune of monsters called the Three Lords.

In order to play the Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak expansion, players must have the base version of Monster Hunter Rise.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
