  • Open Beta Opinions

    It has been roughly a week since Dauntless made the switch from closed to open beta. As part of the move, Phoenix Labs included a number of polishing touches and updates to welcome in new players. And, despite a rocky start, it seems to have worked - over 800 thousand players joined the fight since servers went live.

  • 5 Things You Should Know Before Starting Out in Open Beta

    Today is the day that Phoenix Labs has been waiting for. If everything goes according to the indie studio’s plan, Dauntless will emerge into open beta just before the Pacific coast breaks for lunch. At this point, the pathway to Ramsgate will be wide open for players everywhere to experience behemoth slaying for the first time.

  • PAX East 2018 - Open Beta is Coming on May 24th

    We caught up with the Dauntless team from Phoenix Labs at PAX East, and got the date you’ve all been waiting for - Open Beta is coming May 24th. It’ll be basically the “soft launch” of the monster slaying MMO, available for free through the official site, and no more progress wipes will happen after that date. For all intents and purposes, the game will be out in the wild for founders and everyone else to enjoy. Strap in.

  • PAX South Preview - Continuing Onward & Upward

    At PAX South this past weekend we got a full hands on preview with the new weapon and new boss. There are several additions that have been updated in the game and so during our demo we decided to try out the War Pike. This weapon type brings piercing attacks to the game, which we will discuss later. Of the two new behemoths they were demoing we chose the harder fight against Kharabak. This giant insect is fast and has a bag full of tricks which can really frustrate our heroes.

  • What to Expect as Open Beta Looms

    Phoenix Labs is still hard at work on their next patch, Forge Your Legend (which launches today) and preparing for the Open Beta phase of their development cycle. We got a chance to sit in on vid call with the team to find out what changes fans can expect to see from the update as well as what can expect to pop up in game over the next couple of months.

  • The Present and Future of Phoenix Labs’ Monster Slaying Adventure

    During PAX West, we met up with Chris Cleroux, the Design Director of Dauntless to discuss how far the game’s come since we first saw it, what’s changed, and where we’re headed now that it’s in beta.

  • First Look and Weapon Overview

    I’ve been looking forward to Dauntless for a long time. it’s only a matter of time before a PvE game comes along and does to MMO instanced PvE what MOBAs did to MMO instanced PvP: boil off the excess baggage and present a tight, focused experience that’s a lot easier to get right than a game that’s trying to accomplish a myriad of competing design objectives at once. Dauntless and games of its kin appear to be just that.

  • How I Learned to Love the Grind

    Dauntless has finally left the land of NDA (nondisclosure) and it’s time to see what all the hub bub is about this game. Dauntless describes itself as a co-op action, RPG where you battle ferocious Behemoths, craft powerful weapons and forge your legend in the Shattered Isles.

  • MMORPG’s E3 2017 Best of Show Awards

    Another E3, another week of insane gaming news. Light though it was on MMO info, online games in general were all over the place in LA last week. And as we’re wont to do, we’re giving them shiny badges for the sole purpose of hoping they’ll share those badges with their adoring fans. What, you expected me to lie about the reason behind awards? HA. I’m way past that, folks.

  • E3 2017 - Hands On with Dauntless

    You know, if someone came up to me, handed me a weapon and told me to head out into the wilderness with three of my friends to slaughter a gigantic monster that was causing a ruckus, I’d probably feel rather daunted by the task. Fortunately for me, I am not my avatar from my hands-on time with Dauntless at E3 who did not seem even the least bit daunted by such a quest.

  • PAX East 2017 - Hands On with an Awesome Demo

    This week we got the chance to sit down with Dauntless and go through a demo with the developers. The game has been fueled with hype, and after the demo, it absolutely delivered. Dauntless will be the monster hunter and boss fighting game to really bring the genre into a huge audience. Here is a breakdown of how the demo went and what we did as a group.

  • Running the Dauntlet - Hands On Review & Impressions From PAX South 2017

    Dauntless was the game I was looking forward to seeing the most at PAX South. Phoenix Labs' giant-monster battler captured my, and a lot of other people's, attention with its splashy debut at the Video Game Awards late last year, and I couldn't wait to take my turn to hunt down a giant monster and mount its head on my virtual trophy wall.

  • Like It or Not, Destiny 2 is Good for the MMO Genre

    Destiny 2 is coming to PC. Praise be to RNGeezus, it’s true. While the “Persistent Online Shooter” does everything it can to avoid the term MMO, truth is they’ve invited us (a site mainly focused on MMOs) out to their studio on several occasions. Acronym or not, even Bungie realizes the game’s draw for fans of the genre. With the sequel now officially launching on the PC September 8th, Destiny 2 has become the bright spot on the MMO gamer’s horizon.

  • The Most Wanted MMOs of 2017

    2016 was a rough year. The long-standing MMOs we’ve come to love carried along quite well, but for new titles the selection was pretty limited. And so, as we’re fond to do at year’s end, we look forward to 2017 and the titles we expect to launch (even if in early access, which we pretty much consider launched but ‘half-baked’). Here’s to the next twelve months and the many hours of gaming goodness we hope it brings.
