New Patch Goes Live for Monster Hunter: World

New Patch Goes Live for Monster Hunter: World

The Slashberries belong to the people again.

Monster Hunter: World continues to thunder on, and Capcom continues to patch the massive adventure as necessary. The most recent update fixes an interesting Slashberry problem and squishes some smaller bugs.

The latest patch number is 1.06 for the PlayStation 4 version of the game, and for the Xbox One version of the game. The most notable update is a solution to a Slashberry issue that arose for some people following the previous update. Unfortunate berry-hoarders discovered their Slashberry stash maxed out at 30 instead of 60. The fix brings balance to the fruit-Force, thankfully.

The cuisine cats don't use the Slashberries for their cooking (they're for ammo), but they're happy anyway.

A matchmaking problem has been snuffed out, too. "[R]arely, uninvited non-squad members could join a Squad Online Session, or Squad members could not join one of their own," the patch notes state. Apparently, the matter was addressed in the previous update, but it needed a bit of fine-tuning.

Finally, the Xbox One's algorithm for searching and joining player sessions has also received a tweak and some polish.

We here at USgamer love us some Monster Hunter: Word. The game's rich and lively ecosystem is a real winner, and the depth of its combat is impressive. Sales are booming, and for good reason. You can find Monster Hunter: World on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A PC version is coming this Fall.
