Dauntless Console, Mobile Releases Announced
During last night’s The Game Awards, Phoenix Labs has announced that its free-to-play action RPG Dauntless will be released for consoles next year. The game will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and on PC via the new Epic Games Store in April 2019, with Nintendo Switch and mobile launch to follow sometime in 2019.
In addition, the newest update for the game’s open beta is now available. Titled Frostfall, the update provides a seasonal change as Ramsgate experiences a deep freeze, with a new Behemoth Valomyr added to the game. Phoenix Labs also announced the release of the Dauntless Hunt Pass. The Hunt Pass costs $10 and provided new in-game challenges and activities as well as exclusive items, emote, and cosmetics.
Dauntless is currently available to download from the game’s website as an open beta, which began in May 2018. The game 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. Phoenix Labs intends for all of the game’s versions to feature both cross-play and shared progress across a single account.
