Niantic and Capcom just revealed the Monster Hunter Now (Free) January 2024 events for the game on iOS and Android. In addition to Qualily’s Special Quests (Carpenterbugs, Monster Bons+, Zenny, and more) returning, this month will see Azure Rathalos descend into Monster Hunter Now as a part of the “Descent of the Azure King” quest. I’m glad Azure Rathalos will have a boosted appearance rate throughout the event in forest habitats and not only during specific times of the day. For some reason, we are getting an event focused on Banbaro and Radobaan with increased boost rates as well. I’ve not run into anyone using gear from either of them. I’m looking forward to Qualily’s quests for Monster Bone+ specifically from the 12th until the 18th of this month. The Azure Rathalos event is on from the 15th until the 21st of this month. The official website event section for this month is here.
So far, the recent updates have been good, but I’m still not sold on Hunt-a-thons. They need to balance them for solo play for those living in parts of the world without many Monster Hunter Now players. If you are planning to start playing the game, I put together some (newly updated) tips and tricks for the game, details on the weapons, special skills, the current monsters list, my wishlist for future update monsters, and more. You can grab Monster Hunter Now on the App Store for iOS here and on Google Play for Android here. The in app purchases include different sets of gems and upgrades. Check out the official website here. What do you think of Monster Hunter Now if you’ve been playing it and did you try a Hunt-a-thon yet?
