Well, hunters, it looks like the PSN is currently experiencing some issues. Many players who are hoping to dive into Monster Hunter World for the first time are being greeted by errors. There’s good news and bad news when it comes to this, so let’s explore your options.
PSN Network Status - Servers Down
It appears that the troubles you’re having connecting to the PSN, and perhaps Monster Hunter World specifically, are unrelated to individual PS4 owners. This means that it’s nothing that you have done, and there is nothing you need to do, to fix it. This problem is something that only Sony can solve. That’s the good news.
The bad news is we don’t really know when to expect the issues plaguing the PSN servers to resolve. You can check the PSN network status yourself to stay on top of potential problems. You can also get timely and useful updates from the official PlayStation Twitter account. By using these two resources, you’ll be the first to know when things are resolved. If you experience issues past that point, try the Ask PlayStation Twitter account.
Of course, you can still dive into Monster Hunter World content even if the PSN network status is down, or the PSN servers are having troubles. You just can’t play the game. What you can do, however, is visit the Shacknews Monster Hunter World Guide and Walkthrough. We’re hard at work covering every inch of that game, making sure that your time hunting monsters in the wild is as efficient as it can be.
