Wild Hearts multiplayer explained
In Wild Hearts, multiplayer is fully incorporated into the full experience once you pass the tutorial and have crafted your character using the Wild Hearts character customisation system. This multiplayer allows you to team up with two other players that are either strangers or your friends.
With the open maps of Wild Hearts, you can either explore and take down Wild Hearts Kemono together or tackle missions and quests that have you hunt down specific monsters. There is quite a bit of flexibility on offer in the game and you can also play alone if you prefer.
Wild Hearts multiplayer co-op features
Co-op multiplayer in Wild Hearts is embedded into every aspect of the game and you can even join friends or strangers on other platforms thanks to Wild Hearts crossplay. This feature allows you to combine Kakuri you build and utilise contraptions and items like springs, traps, and Bulawarks to better take down monsters and prevent them from using their most devastating attacks.
Wild Hearts how to join friends in multiplayer
To join your friends in Wild Hearts multiplayer, you can head to the following spots:
- Hunter’s Gate

Here you can choose to matchmake into a game. Alternatively, you can join a friend through these systems or the main menu.
