Monster Hunter: World is gaining heaps of praise across the industry for its beauty, depth, and addictive qualities, however, it hasn't all been plain sailing on Xbox One.
Beyond the technical issues that hinder the game's performance, Monster Hunter: World also suffers from server problems that are preventing players from connecting for co-operative play. Thankfully, Capcom is working to fix the issues.
In a post on Twitter, Capcom said the following.
Hello Hunters, we’re aware of the Xbox matchmaking issues and dev team is actively investigating it, we’ll update you as soon as we can.Hello Hunters, we’re aware of the Xbox matchmaking issues and dev team is actively investigating it, we’ll update you as soon as we can.— Monster Hunter (@monsterhunter) January 27, 2018January 27, 2018
If you're having trouble with Monster Hunter: World, your best bet to fly solo for the time being, but at least we now know that Capcom is working on a fix.
Problems aside, Monster Hunter: World is a huge achievement for Capcom who appeared to be struggling a little in the quality department for a while, until Resident Evil 7 launched to widespread praise early last year. Be sure to read our full Monster Hunter: World Xbox review if you're interested in the game's other aspects, and let us know what you think if you've been playing already!

Maybe if they had made the beta available on Xbox too, we wouldn’t be in this mess...
Perhaps some time should be spent fixing the One X version so it at least looks on par with the PS4Pro version. With crappy textures (hence the game's tiny 13.6gig install size) and everything looking blurry compared to the Pro, somehting is clearly wrong with the game or the development team.
Well they said dev is investigating not working on a fix.
Which could be they're in denial or incompetent.
They can't create a fix until the cause of the issue has been investigated. The fix should follow the investigation.
The first step to recovery is to admit you have a problem.
Investigation comes in third after diagnosis
Can you blame me. There's no more Windows Phone news
I'm actually looking forward to playing this. I haven't played Monster Hunter since I had the original PSP. Man, brings back memories of portable gaming. It put the Gameboy to shame. The media format IMO is what helped kill the PSP. Anyway, I enjoyed Monster Hunter on the PSP and it had lots of monsters to fight and the graphics were pretty damn good for the time.
More like massive connection problems with dragon Ball. Omg
Is it me or the jumping hoops for co op just asinine?
Capcom continues to sabotage Xbox with lack of care for the system.
Why do they need to fix it if all the reviewers are giving the game 9+ out of 10 anyway?
