Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak was released two weeks ago, and it certainly lived up to the “huge expansion” billing that was given to it by Capcom. It included a lot of new stuff for Rise players to explore and experience. The expansion has, as was to be expected, been welcomed with high critical praise, and excellent sales have followed suit as a direct result of this positive reception. It took less than a week for the company to ship 2 million devices to customers all around the world, and now the company has reached another sales benchmark.
Since its release a couple of weeks ago, Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak has surpassed 3 million units in global shipments and digital sales across all platforms, according to an announcement made by Capcom. This figure includes sales of both physical and digital copies of the game. The sales of the base game were estimated to have reached 10 million units at the most recent count, which took place a week ago. Capcom has stated that it intends to continue expanding sales for both the original game and its expansion in the future by releasing more patches. August will see the release of the first of what will likely be many free updates.
Both the Nintendo Switch and the PC are supported platforms for Monster Hunter: Rise of the Sunbreak. In our analysis of the downloadable content, we gave it a rating of eight out of ten and stated that “Sunbreak isn’t something that every Monster Hunter enthusiast needs to go out of their way to experience.” However, it is brand new, difficult content for players of Rise, and it also includes Follower Quests and a new endgame for them to grind through. If you like the way the game is played right now, you should definitely check out the new content that’s been added.
