Monster Hunter Now Update Adds Chat Features & Fixes Ahead of Zinogre Event
- Dec 14, 2023
As excitement builds for the Zinogre Hunt-a-thon, Niantic has rolled out a fresh update for Monster Hunter Now that addresses several issues and ushers in new features to enhance player experience.
The latest version 67 update of Monster Hunter Now is already live, and it brings with it significant additions. The introduction of the new gift system and Item Box Expansions has been the centerpiece of this recent update. However, in a surprising move, Niantic has followed up with an additional patch that targets specific improvements in the game.
The impromptu patch arrives mere days before the anticipated Zinogre Hunt-a-thon kicks off, promising players an electrifying challenge against the thunder-affectionate creature. Though the adjustments incorporated in this iteration are relatively minimal, they include the debut of a chat function and the rectification of various in-game glitches.
For those eager to stay up to date with all the details of the update, the latest Monster Hunter Now patch notes delineate all the newly implemented enhancements.
Highlighted adjustments and corrections in the main features include a fix to the issue where monsters were afflicted by more than one Status Ailment at a time; monsters will now only experience one ailment simultaneously.
In terms of what's on the horizon, updates to the official blog give players a clear picture of when to expect the Hunt-a-thons. The events are scheduled to launch on Friday, December 15, at 9:15 a.m., with the formidable Zinogre making its appearance from 12:15 p.m. on the same day, local time.
It's essential to note the timing of the event for players in time zones that are ahead of Japan Standard Time (GMT+9); for them, the Hunt-a-thons will get underway after 11:45 p.m. GMT on December 14. With these updates in hand, players can prep themselves for the thrill of the hunt and make the most of the Monster Hunter Now gaming experience.
