Update 10.0: Sunbreak Update and Support Weapons

Update 10.0 Partial Banner

Update 10.0: Sunbreak DLC and Master Rank Patch Notes

Update to Reconcile with Sunbreak

MH Rise Sunbreak Global Release Date

Though all the new Sunbreak content are only available for players who purchased the Sunbreak DLC, Update Version 10.0 offered a way to reconcile Rise players and Sunbreak players when playing in Multiplayer.

Thankfully, all balance changes and bug fixes will also be available even if you didn't buy the Sunbreak expansion. Sweet!

Release Date

According to the official website, the release dates for Update 10.0 is expected to drop on June 29, 2022 for the Switch and June 30, 2022 for PC/Steam!

Switch June 29, 2022
Steam June 30, 2022

Black Belt S Armor and HR Defender Weapon Tree

Black Belt S armor will also be made available alongside the high rank Defender weapon tree. This is for the people who want to speed through high rank and get to Sunbreak content.

Download Size

Steam Downloads

Given all the content and features coming with Sunbreak, the update will require a fairly large 13 GB of storage, so be sure to free up enough space before it arrives!

Capcom has not specified if this size applies to both the PC and Switch releases, so PC hunters might want to prepare some extra space for the HD textures.
