As reported previously, the main takeaway in this patch comes in the form of a fix for those who have been unable to enjoy the game in squads, usually with the error message: "Failed to retrieve squad information".
Monster Hunter World players in Japan will have something to look forward to in Spring 2018 as Capcom plans to organize qualifying events in seven areas throughout the country.
If you've been running into Squad issues on the PS4, update 1.05 should fix that, but it will also reset all of your Squad data.
Decreased the power of Slicing Ammo, and reduced the effect it has when hitting other players. Additionally, players in squads whose squad leaders have their data reset will also see any affiliated data disappear the next time they log in'. Squad Online Sessions can still be joined by players outside of the squad via friend invite or Online Session ID search.
The update contains a major chunk of fixes that focus on Squads (PlayStation 4), Issues related to 5 Million Celebration Item Pack, Decorations related fixes, Elderseal, Endemic Life, Quests and some info on the status of Xbox One Matchmaking.
In some conditions, decorations were lost - fixed. Players can only carry 30 Slashberries in their item pouch from now on. With the Light Bowgun and Heavy Bowgun, Normal ammo (1/2/3), Pierce ammo (1/2/3), and non-Dragon elemental ammo have all received an unspecified damage increase. Players can still use any remaining extra Slashberries if they now have more than 30 in their item pouch.
The Monster Hunter franchise has always been popular in Japan, but World is making it a mainstream success around the world.
A rare bug would cause the characters to get out of control after completing a quest when some sub-menus from start menu were open.
Regarding the Xbox One Matchmaking, they have apologized for the inconvenience and that they are working on it tirelessly. We apologise for the delay and appreciate your continued patience and support as we track down and solve these issues.
Capcom's advice to players who can't successful use matchmaking is to try getting online through a different means.
