Capcom has revealed new sales figure details regarding the critically acclaimed Monster Hunter Rise. Firstly, the game’s significant expansion, Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, has sold over 2 million units worldwide. Secondly, the base game itself has now achieved a sales milestone of over 10 million units worldwide. The title was previously confirmed to have sold 8 million units earlier this year.
Capcom notes how Rise’s sales are primarily due to their efforts with “ongoing free updates and the launch of a PC version,” alongside the Sunbreak expansion. The Sunbreak demo was stated as likely reasoning for supporting this momentous sales amount. Further, the company said that it will “continue to leverage its digital strategy going forward, aiming to maximize unit sales with ongoing promotions, including the continued release of free additional content and pricing strategies.”
Congratulations to Capcom for this duo of celebratory news!
Monster Hunter Rise is the latest entry of the action-RPG series, where players are tasked with taking on some of the most powerful monsters around. The game is set in the Kamura Village, home to many warriors who have developed unique and innovative hunting technologies. One of which is a special insect called a Wirebug. This allows players to grapple themselves in any direction, making it possible to scale cliffs and structures.
Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak introduces new monsters, locations, and hunting gameplay, similar in scope to Monster Hunter World’s Iceborne expansion, which added a considerable amount of content to the base game. It is now available for PC via Steam and Nintendo Switch.
