Monster Hunter World UPDATE 1.05: New PS4 and Xbox One patch notes LIVE

MONSTER HUNTER World update 1.05 is now live on PS4 and Xbox One, with new patch notes confirming all the major changes.


The new patch went live earlier today and includes some good news for those who have missed out on squadplay and the Celebration Pack.

Monster Hunter World Update 1.05 is currently available to download on PS4 and Xbox One, and includes various bug fixes for different areas of the game.

One of the main changes is being made to squads, which removes some annoying problems with players being able to join who weren’t invited.

It also tackles the recent connection issues for players, but comes with a massive price. Here’s more from Capcom, who confirm that certain data is being wiped by the new MHW update tonight.

“Fixed an issue where the error message "Failed to retrieve squad information. Please wait and try again." would appear and squad features would not be usable. However, as a result of this fix, players who were affected by this bug will have all of their squad data reset," Capcom confirm.

“Additionally, players in squads whose squad leaders have their data reset will also see any affiliated data disappear the next time they log in.

“We apologize sincerely for the inconvenience, and ask that you reform squads or reinvite players whose data are lost.”

Other Squads changes on PS4 and Xbox One can be found below, as well as news on the Celebration Item pack extension.

  • Fixed an issue where, rarely, uninvited non-squad members could join a Squad Online Session, or squad members could not join one of their own. Squad Online Sessions can still be joined by players outside of the squad via friend invite or Online Session ID search.

5 Million Celebration Item Pack

  • Fixed an issue where some players could not claim the item pack "5 Million Celebration Item Pack".
  • The availability for this item pack has been extended to February 22, 23:59 (UTC).

Decorations

  • Fixed an issue where, under certain conditions, decorations would be lost.
  • Fixed an issue that occurred when selecting items with the "Sell Items" option (from the item box inside base camp tents) by hiding the decorations tab.

General Light Bowgun and Heavy Bowgun ammo changes

  • Increased the power of Normal Ammo (1, 2, 3), Pierce Ammo (1, 2, 3), and all elemental ammo (except Dragon Ammo).
  • Decreased the power of Slicing Ammo, and reduced the effect it has when hitting other players.
  • Reduced the maximum number of Slashberries you can hold in your item pouch from 60 to 30. Players can still use any remaining extra Slashberries if they currently have more than 30 in their item pouch.

Elderseal

  • Readjusted the Elderseal calculation for dragon pods.

Endemic Life

  • Fixed an issue where information on endemic life would disappear from the Wildlife Map when moving about the field.

Quests

  • Fixed an issue where the assignment "Flying Sparks: Tobi-Kadachi" would not appear on the quest board after departing on a different quest in the middle of speaking with the Chief Botanist just before the quest is first assigned.
  • Fixed a rare bug that would cause players to lose control of their characters when completing a quest with certain start menu sub-menus open.

Different changes are also being worked on for Xbox One, which is still struggling with matchmaking issues.

“Our development team is also working tirelessly on pinpointing the issues with matchmaking on Xbox One,” Capcom explains.

“We apologize for the delay and appreciate your continued patience and support as we track down and solve these issues.

“In the meantime, if you’re unable to use the “Matchmake” option to connect to other hunters, you may still be able to create online lobbies, join others’ lobbies via “Filter Search”, “Invite a Friend”, connect via Xbox One LFG, or join hunts by using the “Respond to SOS” feature.

“And in case you haven’t tried this yet, it’s been reported that some hunters have had success using the “Matchmake” feature after setting their NAT connection settings to “Open” on their Xbox One.”

Monster Hunter World is out now on PS4 and Xbox One, and coming to PC later in 2018.
