Previously planned to release on PS4 and Xbox One in late April this year, Dauntless, a free-to-play, co-op action-RPG, is now coming to consoles this summer after a short delay. It is the first release from Phoenix Labs, a small studio founded by former Riot Games developers. The game is already available on Microsoft Windows and will soon migrate to the Epic Games Store.
Dauntless takes place in a post-apocalyptic world of floating islands called the Shattered Isles. Giant, ferocious Behemoths threaten the people’s survival and you play as a Slayer, an elite warrior who fights against the threat. Gameplay is very similar to Monster Hunter, with which it is often compared. Dauntless “takes the Monster Hunter formula – hunt, craft, repeat – and adapts it for a wider audience.” It includes a narrative campaign which guides you through progressively difficult areas and battles, but emphasizes short sessions rather than overall progress.
Dauntless offers airship travel and a large variety of weapons, armor, and consumables. Players can craft and augment their “gear with cores that provide various boosts and abilities.” You can form a party of up to four people and defeat Behemoths together for rewards. The game’s cartoony graphics and colorful visuals provide a stylized look which will definitely protect it against graphical obsolescence in the future.
