Monster Hunter Generations is a great game when playing by yourself, but it is even better when you play online and with your friends. Of course, being a Monster Hunter game, MHG doesn’t go into too much detail on exactly how you play online and join up with other players. To help out we’ve put together this quick guide, showing you how to play online in Monster Hunter Generations.
So, Monster Hunter Generations doesn’t handle online play like most other games. Instead of loading up a big menu, you actually enter a separate area of the game. Well, it’s the same area you use when playing single player, but you choose to enter into it in an online capacity. When entering the hub area where you select missions and prepare for them, you can decide to go to an online multiplayer version of it.
Once you choose this you can search for other players, finding their hubs based around criteria that you select (or you can make your own lobby, though you probably don’t want to do this when starting out). You can limit your search to just your friends, or go fully public. You can search for players in other groups that are looking to do missions, or just messing around. After you input your criteria you can see a list of lobbies that match on the lower screen. Choose which one you want to join and you’ll load in with the other players.
At this point only one of you needs to select the mission, if you all want to play together. Once it has been chosen you can go to the job board to the side of where you would normally select a mission. On here you will see what has been selected, and you can join up for it.
After that you should be all set for how to play online in Monster Hunter Generations. Hopefully this helped, but let me know in the comments if anything is still confusing you and I’ll try to help out.
