Capcom announced today that Primordial Malzeno will be added to Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak as part of a final bonus update. The patch goes live on June 8, 2023.
Primordial Malzeno was introduced during one last presentation for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreakjust moments ago. This will be the game’s final monster. Amatsu was actually originally planned as the final monster, but that wasn’t the case after all.
This new update was developed to bring along Primordial Malzeno, improve armor Augmentation with new slots, and add several new decorations. Players will be able to witness the conclusion to the age-old relation between Malzeno and the Kingdom. Primordial Malzeno can be taken on from MR 10 or higher.
Here’s a full rundown of everything that’s new:
Primordial Malzeno – Malzeno’s original form before it was tainted by the Qurio. Ordinarily, it uses its wings and tail with the elegance of a knight, but under the Qurio’s influence, it uses underhanded means of cornering its prey, and in its “Bloodlust” state it wields tremendous power. Because of the explosive energy corrupting its body, it sometimes shows behavior as if its struggling against an overwhelming force.
Lastly, Capcom shared the following about today’s Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak event:
During today’s Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak Developer Roundtable, Monster Hunter series Producer Ryozo Tsujimoto and Sunbreak Director Yoshitake Suzuki provided a closer look at the Free Bonus Update arriving on June 8, 2023 for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, and was joined by Monster Hunter Rise director Yasunori Ichinose and took a fond look back at the last two years of development for Rise. The Free Bonus Update features the final monster coming to the massive expansion, Primordial Malzeno, a number of changes to armor augmentations and decorations, and challenging new Event Quests releasing through July 27.
The story of Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak was originally intended to end with the climactic clash of Kamura’s forces against Amatsu in Free Title Update 5, however, the Free Bonus Update concludes the age-old relationship between the Elder Dragon Malzeno and the Kingdom. Starting at Master Rank level 10, Primordial Malzeno brings new ferocious attacks and moves for hunters to contend with and offers victorious hunters parts for a unique new armor set and weapons. Following the launch of the Free Bonus Update on June 8, Event Quests boasting greater challenges and even more exciting rewards will continue to release until July 27. While no new Paid DLC will release with the Free Bonus Update, the existing DLC is being bundled in new themed sets at affordable prices.
The remainder of the final Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak Digital Event opened up to a developer roundtable discussing almost two years of Monster Hunter Rise and the Sunbreak expansion. In it, Tsujimoto and Suzuki were joined by Rise Director Yasunori Ichinose to discuss a wide range of topics, including how player feedback impacted the development team, their favorite characters and a thank you to the fans who have inspired them to constantly strive for new and exciting Monster Hunter experiences. With Monster Hunter celebrating its 20th anniversary next year, the trio looks forward to the series’ bright future.
