    Putting an end to Malzeno.

    Capcom announced the Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak Free Bonus Update (version 16.0.0) launches on June 8, marking the culmination of post-launch content updates. The new bonus update will feature the final new monster for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak alongside new quests and content. 

    The main story of Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak was originally supposed to end with the defeat of Amatsu in Free Title Update 5. However, the main story will finally come to a close when Primordial Malzeno appears in the Free Bonus Update. Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak players may challenge Primordial Malzeno at Master Rank 10 and above. Primordial Malzeno brings new ferocious attacks and moves, but skilled hunters will earn valuable parts for a unique new armor set and weapons after defeating the monster. More new content will arrive in the weeks after the Free Bonus Update launches.
