Changes From Previous Games
Multiple People Can Move Around The Base
There was a scene in the second preview that ran through Kamura Village showing multiple hunters. This means you can gather at the base where there are various shops to explore and make equipment with everyone. Note that hunters are limited to 4 people during a multiplayer session.
Bring The Palamute With You
Similarly, the second preview shows a 4-person party moving around using palamutes. This wasn't possible in previous games, but it looks like this time around you can utilize them as a means of transportation even while in multiplayer.Check Out The Palamute Here!
Single Player VS Multiplayer
Details have yet to be confirmed. The following information is based upon previous games.
Increased Monster HP
One of the biggest differences between single player and multiplayer is the HP of the monsters. Given that the number of people who will fight will also increase, the HP of the monsters will increase in proportion. Since you will be fighting together as a group, there's no need to worry about whether you'll be able to fight well.
The Number of Supplies Increase
In multiplayer mode, the number of supplies will increase in proportion with the number of players. You are free to take as many as you wish, but make sure to be considerate of the other players as well.
In MH World and MH Iceborne, players were able to gather in multiplayer servers supporting up to 16 players at which they may join quests together. It is also possible to join as a single player, however, since the probability will lower, we recommend playing in multiplayer for these quests.
