Capcom announced during their Capcom Spotlight Digital Event on March 9 that Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak will be releasing for Xbox and PlayStation consoles on April 28. The base game Monster Hunter Rise was released for the two consoles in January of this year after originally launching on Nintendo Switch in 2021 and PC in 2022.
The expansion release will include all free content up through Title Update 3, which released last November.
