Dauntless has launched for Nintendo Switch featuring full cross-play support for Xbox One, PS4, and PC as per today's Nintendo Indie World Showcase.
In a blog post today, a seventh new weapon for Dauntless, dubbed Aether Strikers, was previewed bringing with it new combos, new techniques, and more.
Phoenix Labs' action RPG Dauntless will finally be leaving Early Access, as its 1.0 update will launch on September 26th. With it a new season will arrive in Dauntless with its new Aether Unbound update.
On July 16th, Dauntless players will be able to take part in fresh new content with the arrival of the Fortune and Glory content update. Fortune and Glory will include brand new trials and a new Hunt Pass with tons of new cosmetic rewards and much more.
Dauntless has been updated to bring a number of big quality of life improvements to the game. Notably, players will find a new streaming install client, new weapon demo videos, the Terra elemental effect and, best of all, the Winterhorn Skraev behemoth. The Winterhorn Skraev comes with new abilities and an all-new look.
The Dauntless roadmap has been updated to provide players with a forward look at some upcoming features including the new High Skies Hunt Pass. High Skies features the "arrival of a mysterious figure" and will be completely different from the current Hunt Pass. "Sail all the way to level 50 to earn skins for each of your six weapon types, plus a complete set of cosmetic corsair armor," the description reads. Players will also find a ton of new cosmetics in the shop as well.
Phoenix Labs has announced that over ten million players have tried out Dauntless on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One since the game launched on May 21st. In addition, Dauntless is heading to Nintendo Switch later in 2019 and will join the other platforms in the cross-play / cross-save system.
Phoenix Labs and Vivox have announced that cross-platform voice communications are powering the VOIP in Dauntless. Vivox offers players a way to communicate seamlessly whether on PC, Xbox One, or PlayStation 4. Vivox will also power voice comms When Nintendo Switch and mobile devices go live at a later date.
