The release times of Sunbreak for Nintendo Switch and for Steam on PC are different, with a local midnight release for Switch, and a simultaneous worldwide release at 12:00 AM (US Eastern Time) for Steam.

The Switch version was midnight in your local time zone, with the time zone depending on your eShop region. This means that people in time zones further east were able to access the game earlier.
Players with eShop accounts from regions near the top of the following list are able to play the game earlier than those near the bottom.
|Region||Time Zone||Hours Behind|
|Australian East Coast||UTC+10||3|
|Australian West Coast||UTC+8||5|

|Release Time||June 30, 12:00 AM (US Eastern Time)|
According to the Sunbreak listing on Steam, Sunbreak is now available for all PC players as of the same time, at midnight in US eastern time (GMT-4).
This means that unlike the Switch release, the release time of the Steam version of the game are affected by time zone or game region, so instead of the game coming out at midnight local time for everyone, the time of day is different depending on the part of the world you are in.
|Region||Time Zone||Release TIme|

|Australian East Coast||UTC+10||2:00 PM|
|New Zealand||UTC+13||5:00 PM|
On the Nintendo Switch HOME screen, press Monster Hunter Rise and then press Check to see if the software is available. If you press Start Software, it will start the Monster Hunter Rise base game instead of the Sunbreak DLC, so be sure to choose Check when the game is available in your region.
Regardless of the release time, it is possible that getting access to Sunbreak may change depending on various factors.
It is possible that Nintendo and Steam's servers experience issues during the day which may slow down or delay game updates.
It can also depend on your Internet speed, as Monster Hunter Rise will have a sizeable update to add Sunbreak content in the game.
Delays have previously happened with the Iceborne expansion for Monster Hunter: World in consoles, wherein the game was first made available for players living in eastern time zones.
Pre-orders for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is available up until the game's release, and can be purchased in Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo Switch and in Steam for PC.
