Dauntless set to release on May 21

In Dauntless, players take up the mantle of Slayers.

Fight for survival on the edge of the world. As a Slayer, it's up to you to hunt down the boss-sized Behemoths that are devouring the land.

Developer Phoenix Lab is pleased to announce today the release date for the much awaited free-to-play action RPG Dauntless that will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store. As with previous Hunt Pass seasons, Slayers can work through 50 levels of content across both the basic and Elite tracks, earning cosmetic rewards as well as premium currency along the way. Drawing in more than 3 million players during its open beta on PC, Dauntless will launch with a range of improvements and content updates from said beta. The Mastery system offers a new way for Slayers to hone their skills, earn experience, unlock achievements, and acquire new rewards.


For launch, Phoenix Labs will be supporting cross-platform play between PC and Xbox One users, although PS4 is expected to include the feature at some point, as discussions are ongoing between the developer and Sony. This also marks the last chance for current PC Open Beta players to pick up the Ramsguard set before it is locked away in the vault. As a free-to-play game, Dauntless also utilises Battle Pass-esque monetisation, with the fifth Hunt Pass season scheduled to launch at same time as the full game.

Jesse Houston, Phoenix Labs co-founder and president, has previously said that Dauntless draws "inspiration from games like Dark Souls, Monster Hunter and World of Warcraft", where players can slay huge Behemoths solo or cooperatively. They are waiting for you: regular updates, seasonal events, new Behemoths and much more in a rich and ever-changing world.
