Monster Hunter World is a great game, a fantastic game, but for Xbox One players, it has also been an exercise in frustration; playing it with other players has been rendered hugely difficult in game, mostly because matchmaking on the Xbox One version is totally borked.
Capcom has already indicated that it is looking at these problems, and plans to keep looking into it; but the newest update for the game, update 1.06, also introduces improvements to how matchmaking on the platform works.
That is only one of many improvements added to the game with the new patch- other improvements include minor inventory issues, as well as minor multiplayer issues players on the PS4 version of the game were having. Monster Hunter World is available now on PS4 and Xbox One, with a PC release planned for later this year. Check out the full patch notes for the update below.
PlayStation 4 and Xbox One:
- Fixed an issue that occurred when hunters had 31 or more Slashberries in their item pouch at the time of the last update (PS4 v1.05 / Xbox One v22.214.171.124) where the maximum number of Slashberries a hunter can hold in their item pouch was reduced from 60 to 30. This update will move any Slashberries exceeding 30 in your item pouch to your item box.
- Made additional fixes to an issue fixed in the last update where, rarely, uninvited non-squad members could join a Squad Online Session, or Squad members could not join one of their own.
- Readjusted the search algorithm when searching for another player’s session to join
- Monster Hunter World 1.06 also added various minor bug fixes.
- Added game performance and stability improvements.
- Improvements for Matchmaking on Xbox One also added with Monster Hunter World 1.06.
