Phoenix Labs launched Dauntless on PS4, Xbox One, and the Epic Games store and it presents a milestone as the first game to launch with true cross-platform play.
Phoenix Labs fulfilled their promise of “One Dauntless”, a cross-platform and cross-progression system that enables players use Dauntless account anywhere and to play with everyone, no matter the platform.
CEO and Co-founder of Phoenix Labs, Jesse Houston commented on the release:
“When we first started talking about ‘One Dauntless,’ we knew it was a truly audacious goal. No one has ever launched on console with full cross-play support from the start, but we believed in our vision and, thankfully, our friends at Epic Games, Sony, and Microsoft did too. Keeping the community connected is one of our top priorities, and with all the new players coming in at launch, there’s never been a better time to be a Slayer in Dauntless.”
After a year in open beta Dauntless arrives on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the Epic Games store with numerous improvements and content updates.
Players can also look forward to a massive campaign rework. Everything from questing and crafting to meeting other players and pursuing Behemoths has received massive updates. The rework also introduces a brand new “End of Hunt” screen, providing players with a wealth of information, including progress made in various Mastery cards, quest rewards, and more.
Dauntless puts players in the role of a Slayer, one of a rare class of heroes risking their lives to defend the Shattered Isles from a growing Behemoth threat. As a Slayer, players and their hunting party are all that stand between the Shattered Isles and the Behemoths that seek to devour it. Players take on boss-sized monsters, forge powerful weapons, and craft armor from the very creatures they slay, all in a massive, free-to-play online world.
