Dauntless’ Fortune & Glory Update Arrives Next Week
Phoenix Labs has announced that its newest update for Dauntless, titled “Fortune & Glory”, will be released on July 16, 2019. The update will be available on all of the game’s current platforms and includes the new Trials challenges as well as a new Hunt Pass — seasonal events with limited-time rewards — plus new cosmetic rewards.
The new Trials are offered by the new character Lady Luck. She sends Slayers to an island with modified Behemoths and environmental challenges. The Trials are split into two difficulty levels, Normal and Dauntless. These provide currencies called Steel Marks and Gilded Marks, which can be used to purchase new rewards. Available Trials will rotate on a weekly basis, with leaderboards for both solo and group hunts.
Dauntless sees players controlling Slayers, warriors sent out to fight against beasts known as Behemoths. The game is available as a free-to-play title on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store, complete with cross-play between all platforms. A Nintendo Switch version will be released later this year.
