In and around “Elgad”, an observation base to investigate abnormality in monsters, new monsters called “Oiki Sanko (Royal Sanko Monster)” that are the greatest threat in the kingdom, and subspecific monsters and monsters revived from the series appear one after another. Even monsters that appeared in “Monster Hunter Rise” will show you different appeal in master-rank quests that exceed high-rank quests.

Furthermore, it is now possible to construct original action using new elements “Hayagae (Switch Skill Swap)” which enables to change the switch skill set during hunting and “Sakigake (Swap Evade)”. Sunbreak enables you to experience further advanced hunting action.
