Monster Hunter: World Patch 1.0.0.8 Fixes "All Matchmaking Functionality" on Xbox One

Monster Hunter World 1.03 Update Stomps Out, Here's the Patch Notes

The Xbox One's Patch 1.0.0.8 will address and allegedly resolve "all matchmaking functionality issues" in Monster Hunter World. Notably, the game's matchmaking features on Xbox One didn't work, nor did SOS flares.

Now that Monster Hunter: World has arrived, Capcom has been sharing a series of The Making of Monster: Hunter World videos that talks to the people behind the game. It's already sold well over five million copies on release and continues to be the talk of most console gamers these days. It's a game that once you get into, one might not be able to stop playing for long sessions at a time considering everything it brings to the table. The new Monster Hunter patch does fix two Hunting Horn bugs, including one that broke dodge-canceling while playing Encore, but those are the only gameplay changes cited in the official patch notes.

Capcom celebrating this landmark by giving all players a Monster Hunter World celebration item pack for free.

Following the release of update 1.03 earlier this week, Capcom has now launched a 930MB patch to fix a few issues.

The update targets errors across the board, including "Matchmake", "Filter Search", "Squad Sessions Session" and "Respond to SOS".
