'Monster Hunter: World' Fans Want to Make The Game Less Intimidating
The Monster Hunter franchise can be a little daunting for newbies, but some in the community want to change that. With Monster Hunter: World coming out later this month, they've started the "Adopt-A-Hunter" initiative. It's a sub-community where veteran players can take novice hunters under their wing and teach them the game's basics. Newbies and vets will be paired up a few days before the game's official launch, according to the community's website. PC pairings will be assigned shortly before that platform's launch later this year.
"Over the last eight years the Monster Hunter community has grown and expanded to become one of the most inclusive, brotherly, and helpful online gaming communities that we have ever had the pleasure to be a part of," the website says. "With a AAA release on the horizon, many of us veteran hunters are looking forward to welcoming our new hunter brethren with open arms."
