Dauntless Reveals Upcoming Additions
Phoenix Labs has announced a free expansion coming soon to its free-to-play action RPG Dauntless. The expansion for the game, which is currently in an open beta state ahead of a full release planned for later this year, is titled The Coming Storm and will be released in parts, with the first part hitting on August 8, 2018.
Phoenix Labs did not confirm exactly parts will be released when, with the expansion content rolling out over a period of a couple of months, but it did reveal the main additions planned. The first is a new Behemoth named Koshai. Dubbed the Sovereign of Thorns, Koshai is known to be a fearsome opponent able to tear apart the strongest armour with its thorns and vines. To balance this, players will gain access to the new Ostian Repeaters weapon type, the first ranged weapons in the game. A further ranged option will also come in the form of grenades.
Dauntless sees players controlling Slayers, warriors sent out to fight against beasts known as Behemoths. After defeating a Behemoth, players bring back loot and ingredients to the city of Ramsgate to use in crafting new weapons and armour, letting them take on stronger Behemoths. The game features both a main campaign and additional content the developer dubs the “Evergame”. Dauntless is being developed for PC, with its open beta available to download from its official website.
