Monster Hunter titles have a learning curve that every player has to go through. This is what makes this series special in its own way.

You can ride monsters, make them fight each other or you can just ride them towards a wall and make them hit their forehead to deal enormous damage.

Thus, players will be able to do the actions they enjoy by manipulating the world of the game as they wish. If you want to roam freely in a game world as four friends, you should try Valheim.
