Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak Showcases Citadel Hunting Grounds & Garangolm Combat

In anticipation of the Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak expansion releasing June 30, 2022, for Nintendo Switch and PC, Capcom published 2 videos showcasing the citadel hunting grounds and the Garangolm hunt. Summations of the gameplay displays and trailers are listed below:

  • “Citadel Tour – Take a tour of the new key locale for Master Rank Quests, joining the selection of locales already available in Monster Hunter Rise. Players will notice the unique fauna and flora, castle ruins, along with a variety of different landscapes and biomes, ranging from ice-covered snowy regions to foggy swamplands. This land was once a thriving part of the Kingdom, but is now devastated, leaving plenty of room for nature to take its course and flourish around it.”

  • “Garangolm Hunt – Tune in for a look at an actual hunt against the new monster, Garangolm, a hulking Fanged Beast with a rigid body. Garangolm may not seem flashy at first, as it relies heavily on its brute physical strength to attack; however, after taking a few punches, it’ll become enraged, showing a few elemental tricks it had up its sleeves. In battle, Garangolm covers its arms in magma and moss, allowing for it to deal both fire and water elemental damage, and be sure to keep an eye out for relentless elemental powered charging attacks and blazing fast rocket jumps!”
