Monster Hunter: World released on August 9th, 2018, it’s a popular game around the world. You can take down beasties by yourself but playing with friends provide another way to enjoy the game.

Before you start playing with your friends, there’s some information about multiplayer you need to know.

  • Hunter levels will influence whether you can team up.

If your hunter level is lower than your friends and you want to join his/her quest, it’s not going to work.

But if your hunter level is higher than your friends, you can join the quest to help out. It works the same in the story missions. Your higher-level friends can jump by to help if you leave a quest on the quest board.

  • Watch out the cutscenes rule

You have to watch all the cutscenes and wait for your teammates to watch all the cutscenes before jump in the squad.

Bonus tip for PC players: Update your drivers

To get a better gaming experience, it is very important to update your device drivers. Windows 10 doesn’t always give you the latest version. But with outdated or wrong drivers, you may encounter games won’t launch issues, black screen issues, and other problems. Also, updating your drivers in time could help your devices make full use of their features.

There are two ways you can update your driver: manually and automatically.

Option 1 �� Manually– You’ll need some computer skills and patience to update your drivers this way, because you need to find exactly the right the driver online, download it and install it step by step.

OR

Option 2 – Automatically (Recommended)– This is the quickest and easiest option. It’s all done with just a couple of mouse clicks – easy even if you’re a computer newbie.

Option 1 – Download and install the driver manually 

You can download graphics drivers from the manufacturer official website. Search for the model you have and find the correct driver that suits your specific operating system. Then download the driver manually.

Option 2 – Automatically update drivers

If you don’t have time or patience to manually update your graphics drivers, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.

Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing.

You can update your drivers automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks (and you get full support and a 30-day money back guarantee):

  1. Download and install Driver Easy.
  2. Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.
  3. Click the Update button next to the flagged driver to automatically download the correct version of that driver, then you can manually install it (you can do this with the FREE version). 
    Or click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system. (This requires the Pro version which comes with full support and a 30-day money back guarantee. You’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All.)
