Vancouver (and southern-California) based studio Phoenix Labs have released Dauntless across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (via Epic Game Store). The free-to-play game has the art style of Fortnite, while containing the gameplay of a quicker more fast paced Monster Hunter.
Powerful, wild, and ravenous for the aether that holds the Shattered Isles aloft, Behemoths are a threat to our very existence. Team up with other Slayers to confront these massive beasts before they consume what's left of our world.
As part of the launch, Phoenix Labs has announced One Dauntless - a way of saying that the game has cross-play and cross-progression across all three platforms, provided you’ve linked your accounts.
With One Dauntless, we’re thrilled to offer a true cross-play experience on every system. That means that you can play with your friends no matter which platform they choose. Have one friend on PC, another on Xbox, and a third on PlayStation? With cross-play, you can all hunt together, chat together, or even join up with the same guild!
We also have some great news for those of you who started your journey on PC: You can take your progress with you. By linking your Dauntless account to Epic Games, you’ll be able to pick up and play from any system – including Xbox One and PlayStation 4. And yes, your hard-earned gear, cosmetics, quest progress, and more will travel with you.
I’ve played a few hours and enjoyed my time immensely - and will be streaming a lot more of the game on Twitch.
