MH Rise features a co-op and multiplayer feature right near the start of the game. This guide on How To Join A Friends Quest In Monster Hunter Rise explains how you can form a party and complete some of the games most challenging content alongside your friends and other players.
Before we get started, it is important to understand what parts of Monster Hunter Rise are multiplayer and what parts are not. There are two main central areas in the game where you can start your quests. The open village area, by speaking with the young girl in the center of the village, and the Hub, the building next to the Canteen. All quests selected from the Village area are single player. They cannot be joined with friends and you cannot ask for assistance from other players, they are completely solo.

If you want to do multiplayer, you need the hub. However, first you need to form a party. Head to the center of town and speak with the cat called Senri The Mailman. Here you want to select to Play Online and Create A Lobby. You can password the lobby if you wish, but then all missions done from the hub will only be you and your lobby – other players will not be able to join to assist once the mission has started.
Once you have created a Lobby, select the friends option and invite your friend. You friend will then accept the invite and join. You can both then enter the hub. The host, you in this instance, speaks with the quest lady at the hub and selects the quest. Make sure to toggle the option for assistance after you select the quest. Your friend then accesses the nearby quest board and selects the quest you have chosen. You can then load in together.
