Gathering in a Lobby
Lobbies are places for gathering with other players during Multiplayer sessions.
Up to four players can join a Lobby, and any player can register a quest using the Quest Board at the Gathering Hub.
Prepare for your hunts by visiting the various facilities at Kamura Village and the Gathering Hub, going to the Buddy Plaza to manage your Buddies, and testing your moves at the Training Area. You can use gestures and the chat function to communicate with other players!
Responding to Join Requests
Join Requests are a useful online feature that allow you to ask other players to join your quests.
Only the Quest Host can use this feature, either while out in the field, or by
selecting "Accept via Join Request" when you take on a quest.
Other players will be able to join your quests halfway, so use this feature if you need some help.
Players who join in halfway will still be able to receive rewards.
If you help out a hunter with a lower Hunter Rank than you, you'll also get a "Helper Reward," so it's worth lending other players a hand even for quests you've already finished!
New Featuresto Facilitate Matchmaking
When creating a Hunter Connect, you can add optional tags (the Connect Name), activity time, and a shoutout.
You can make your own Hunter Connect or be invited to join one by another player.
You can also create a Lobby that can only be found by players using the same Hunter Connect, by specifying the Hunter Connect you're currently using when creating the Lobby.
This makes it much easier to find players who have the same objectives and play style as you!
When you complete a quest in Multiplayer, you can send a "Like" to other players before you return to the village.
Send someone a Like to show you admire their skills!
By giving each other Likes, you become Mutual Likes, allowing you to check each other's profiles at any time.
This even allows you to hook up more easily with players you met by chance, after a quest is over or after the Lobby is disbanded.
*You cannot search Lobbies or invite players via the Mutual Likes list in the Steam version.
You can send Friend requests by checking the profile of a Mutual Like.
Use the Camera to keeprecords of your hunting life!
Of course you can zoom in/out and adjust the composition, and if you manage to get a monster or endemic creature nicely centered in the frame, you'll even be able to see its name!
Any pictures you take in the game can be saved and viewed either on your PC or in the in-game album.
In the in-game album, monsters and endemic life that have their names displayed are automatically categorized.
You can also set pictures you like as your favorites!
If you have a pet Cohoot, it will help you take a selfie as well.
