Capcom’s Monster Hunter Rise arrived on Nintendo Switch on 26th March and with it came many things for players to explore. 

There are two main story questlines in Monster Hunter Rise, the all Single-Player questline — Village Quests, and the Single-Player/ Multiplayer questline — Hub Quests. Each questline features a mix of Optional, Urgent, and Key quests.

Today we are going to talk about the Village Quests.  If you have just started Monster Hunter Rise (MHR) and want to know more about how village quests work then read on!

First and foremost, the Village quests are Single-Player only, meaning you can’t team-up with anyone. Although the quests are generally easier than the Hub Quests, there are still some Key-quests that spawn a tough boss which you need to defeat in order to progress to the next star. Finally, the Village quests only go up to 6 stars, after 6 stars you will not receive or unlock anything.
