Part 1. Game Mechanics Summary

If you're familiar with Pokemon Go, you'll be comfortable playing Monster Hunter Now since these two games have identical gameplay mechanics.

But still, let's explain these simple mechanics. Characters are moved by the movements that the players control. You search for the monsters in your vicinity by checking a fixed radar until one of them appears exactly on the radar. When that happens, the monster pops up, and you, as a player, have to tap it so your character can engage in a fight with the monster. 

Fight mechanisms are also quite simple to grasp since the game is mostly playable with one finger: you can attack the monster with a single tap, move to the left or right to avoid getting hit by the monster, or long-press to defend against its attack.

One of the most important aspects of the game is the so-called urgent quests in which the character you choose has to fight a monster in order to catch it and complete the quest. 

The reason why we say this is one of the most important aspects is that catching the monster is crucial not only for finishing quests but also for earning Zenny and Gems, which are the game's only currencies.

All in all, even though Monster Hunter now has some limitations, it compensates by delivering a wealth of adventure, which ensures players enjoy an incredible gameplay experience.

Part 2. Monster Hunter Now Pre-Registration Rewards

Anyone who registers for Monster Hunter Now before its global release will receive a bonus of awesome in-game goodies you can use to build up your character.

The exact reward depends on the number of players who have pre-registered for the game. As of right now, that number is above 2 million, meaning you will get the bonuses for the first three milestones: 500k, 1 mill, and 2 mill!

Here are all the Monster Hunter early registration rewards listed:

Part 3. Strategies and Hints for Newcomers to Monster Hunter Now

Although jumping straight into the game might be more than tempting, it's always useful to learn a thing or two about the game's strategies and hints before playing. These will not only help you advance in the game faster but also decrease the frustration newcomers usually experience. Let's check out the five most important ones!

1. Safety first

Since Monster Hunter Now is a game you go out and play, you have to remember that you're moving in the real world even though you're playing a game on your phone in a fantasy world. While you're outside, periodically check your surroundings to see where you currently are so you do not fall into a manhole, trip over a rock, or get hit by a car!

2. Hunt as many monsters as possible

The game is called Monster Hunter Now for a reason: the goal is to hunt as many monsters as you can. Doing this will help you on many levels: completing quests, leveling up as quickly as possible, and collecting in-game currencies. The more currency you have, the easier it will be to upgrade the features of your character and, therefore, advance faster in the game.

3. Finish the quests within the designated time frame

Doing the quests that are part of the game on time is beneficial in two ways. The first way is to help you earn currencies, which, as we just spoke, are important for feature upgrading. The second one is related to getting experience points, which facilitates quicker advancement through the levels.

4. Complete the urgent quests

Even though players have both daily and urgent quests that are assigned to them, urgent quests are much more important for two reasons: they need to be finished within a dedicated time frame, and they bring players more rewards than the daily quests.

Because of this, you should do them as soon as they appear, especially in the beginning when urgent quests are quite easy to complete.

5. Regularly update your character's equipment 

Earning all the currencies and rewards we mentioned won't mean anything if you don't use them timely and properly. That is why it's of the utmost importance to use all the resources you own to upgrade your character's weapons and armor. Doing so will strengthen the character, making it easier to kill and capture the monsters.
