Why players should try the demo
The demo allows players to experience first hand a small sample of what Sunbreak has to offer. Since Sunbreak is paid DLC, players will likely want to understand firsthand exactly how the DLC feels. Here are the prices for Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak.
When purchasing the full game alongside the DLC together, Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak costs $69.99.This specific deal stands for the Switch version when purchasing on a third party website. The deal can be found on sites such asGameStop andAmazon. Simply click on the appropriate link to be redirected. Keep in mind, the $69.99 (tax and shipping not included) bundle is for physical copies of Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak. It seems the deal isn’t available for digital copies. For players who haven’t purchased the base game yet, and are planning on buying the DLC, TGH recommends this specific deal. More price-point analysis on this later.
Monster Hunter Rise Deluxe Kit ($14.99) Not Recommended
There’s also something called the Monster Hunter Rise DELUXE Edition, but don’t be fooled by this. The Deluxe Edition is NOT Sunbreak, and really only includes cosmetics alongside perhaps some consumable items. So unless the buyer just has a lot of money they’re willing to throw into the wind, it’s recommended not opting for the Deluxe Bundle. The Deluxe Kit costs $14.99.
Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak ($39.99) Recommended
Now, what about for players who already have the base game? The next section will discuss information relevant for both Nintendo Switch alongside Steam users. When purchasing the DLC alone, Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak costs $39.99 for both platforms. That’s practically enough money for an entire new game. So why should players pay this?
Well, Monster Hunter World Iceborne marketed in practically the same manner as Sunbreak. And for committed Monster Hunter players, Iceborne provides more than enough content to warrant the purchase. It serves practically as an entire sequel to the main installment, rather than the industry standard’s DLC. If Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak releases in the same manner as Iceborne, and Capcom continues to support the game with updates, Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak will undoubtably become the next hot topic in the video gaming industry.
Monster Hunter Rise ($59.99 Digital, $29.99 Physical) Physical>Digital
Here’s the relevant information for players who are new to Monster Hunter Rise, and hoping to purchase the base game in preparation for Sunbreak. Unfortunately, the Digital base game currently costs $59.99, standing at the price of a full fledge new entry. Now that’s quite expensive. But if players look towards online websites, attempting to purchase the physical copy instead, it’s actually a far cheaper $29.99.
So the price point analysis is pretty bare bones, and shouldn’t really come as a surprise. If players purchase the digital version at $59.99, and Sunbreak as well, that totals up to $99.99. That’s far too expensive, and should be avoided if possible. But if players purchase the Physical version instead, and pay for the DLC, that’s back at the same price of $69.99.
That concludes all the currently available Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak cost and prices. For those still not sure if they want to buy the game, definitely check out the MHR Sunbreak Demo. The game may receive sales in the far future, but that’d probably have to wait for at least a year or two. Once again, keep in mind this particular article doesn’t take tax into consideration. For players wondering whether to buy the game or not, though it isn’t officially released quite yet, it’s highly likely to be a fantastic game. Capcom earned a great reputation for supporting their main line installments. Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak, though not guaranteed, will highly likely be a great update to an already great game.
