Monster Hunter: World sold quite a bit in its PC launch but it wasn’t without its issues, mainly network connectivity issues, but some of these problems have been addressed in the now-live Patch 1.01.
Here’s a status update from Capcom on some of the connection error issues that have been fixed:
- Fixed an issue where error messages would display and kick players offline when searching for online sessions.
Also readjusted the matchmaking function to make it easier to find an online session via “Search for an Online Session” > “Matchmake”.
- Fixed an issue where error messages would display and kick players offline after having joined an online session.
- Fixed an issue where error messages would display and kick players offline while playing multiplayer.
This adjustment reduces the number of occurrences, though it does not completely resolve the issue. We will continue to investigate this matter.
- Fixed an issue where the error message “E_FAIL : hr” would display and the game would crash when switching to full screen mode.
Keep in mind that you’ll need to update to the latest version of Monster Hunter: World to apply these fixes. The latest version of the game is revision number 151910, and you’ll only get to match with other players who have the same update version as you.
Monster Hunter: World is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game recently hit the 10 million milestone in worldwide shipments and digital downloads, making it Capcom’s very first title to hit the mark.
