Phoenix Labs launched free-to-play Action-RPG Dauntless on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Epic Games Store today. This fulfills the developers’ promise of “One Dauntless”, a cross-platform and cross-progression system that enables players to take their Dauntless account with them wherever they go and allows players to team up with others around the world regardless of their platform of choice.
“After a year in Open Beta and a ton of great feedback from over 3 million Dauntless players, we’re proud to bring our game to console and expand our PC audience through the Epic Games store,” said Jesse Houston, CEO and Co-founder, Phoenix Labs. “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.”
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.
