Monster Hunter Stories 2: How to Unlock Multiplayer Battles

To unlock multiplayer battles in Monster Hunter Stories 2 you will need to get to the Alcala region. This is the second main area in the game, where you'll be accompanied by a character called Alwin. After a few missions you'll be tasked with taking down a Nargacuga, which is a tough fight. Once you've defeated it you'll then take on Alwin in your first Rider battle. You don't need to win here, but completing the fight will unlock the multiplayer battle options.
