Monster Hunter: World PS4 Players Won’t Be Able to Cross-Play with PC Users
Woah, woah, woah. Hold your horses. I know it’s a Pavlovian response these days to start cracking your knuckles and hurriedly mashing out a few expletive-filled sentences on your keyboard whenever ‘PS4’ and ‘cross-play’ inevitably intertwine but the unfortunate news that Monster Hunter World cross-play isn’t coming to both the PS4 version and the upcoming PC launch of the game actually comes from Capcom’s side, not Sony’s.
Speaking to PC Gamer, the game’s producer Ryozo Tsujimoto opened up about the prospect of Monster Hunter World cross-play appearing at launch on PC.
“I want to synch these up as much as possible, but as mentioned previously regarding title updates, the differences in versions between platforms may prevent them being completely the same time. “
That may not say an awful lot when it comes to the devs working explicitly towards an endgame of Monster Hunter World cross-play, but it’s clear that the thought has crossed their minds. For now, it’s going to be an impossibility due to the PS4 and PC versions essentially including a whole host of minor differences; an identical version of the title across platforms would be needing to achieve cross-play.
Why wouldn’t you want to eat a Mosswine? They even take you to bunches of mushrooms so that you have a side to go with their porky goodness. I’d feel a little bad eating one after it’s picked out what it goes well with, but a Mosswine would make for a great set of porkchops once it’s been cleaned and prepared – you don’t want to eat any of its moss, after all!
Porkchops, mushrooms, and perhaps a few herbs from your journey come together to create a hearty meal, and one that’ll reinvigorate you to go back out on your monster slaying adventures.
Anjanath - BBQ Ribs
Anjanath’s short little arms may not be willing to give much, but he has a massive body. That means that Anjanath can provide plentiful ribs! What goes good with ribs? BBQ sauce. You know that the Handler likely has an excellent BBQ sauce recipe, because her love for food knows no bounds. Whilst this would be a simple meal of endless stacks of ribs coated in a warm, smoky BBQ sauce, you’ll not be left unsatisfied. That meat will fall right off the bone and honestly readers, I’m at risk of dribblin’ right now.
Lavasioth - Chili-coated Fish
Monster Hunter: World doesn’t offer many options in terms of seafood, but the fiery Lavasioth could provide fish food with a bit of a kick. Sure, it doesn’t come from the sea of water, but it comes from a sea of lava! You can guarantee it’ll be hot when it reaches your plate, and you might find going to the toilet to be a bigger challenge than facing down any monster. What people would do for food, eh?
Give me that fish fillet with a chili coating, chili oil, and a jug (or several) of water to wash that hot inferno down. This is a dish for those Fivers who think that they could eat even the hottest food, but the Hunter’s Guild and Research Commission team don’t take responsibility for those brave – or foolish – enough to try it out.
Rathian - Beef Bowl
You know what Rathians have that not many other monsters have? Eggs. They lay eggs, and they’re massive. You don’t even need to carve the Rathian to create a good meal with what it has to offer, but shredded beef on a bed of rice with egg cracked on top sounds pretty darn great, doesn’t it? This is Monster Hunter, so of course the amount of rice and beef has to be comparable to the size of Rathian’s eggs. Maybe Yu Narukami of Persona 4 fame could tackle such an endless beef bowl, as he’s tackled the meat dimension once before and come out on top. Anybody else? Who knows?
Kulve Taroth - Golden Feast
The Kulve Taroth is the big one. A feast fit for a king or queen. She can’t be slayed right now, but you can only imagine the gold-lined meal that she’d provide once she’s finally taken down. Food with gold in the ingredients are considered to be delicacies, and Kulve Taroth’s gold plating would accompany an insane platter of meat. It’s the largest creature in the game, so it’s suitable that its meal is nigh-impossible to eat in its entirety.
