Dauntless Leaving Open Beta Behind & Heading for PS4, XB1 & PC Starting Next Week
Dauntless is leaving open beta testing and finally has a release date for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, as well as the PC release via the Epic Games Store. All versions of Dauntless will be available beginning May 21st.
The release comes with a number of updated features, most notably a new, detailed character creation tool. One of the more interesting features is the ability for players to access the system to tweak their character at any time.
The release comes on the heels of the most recent update, Path of the Slayer, that featured "a core progression rework" and that was released at the end of April.
Dauntless will also launch with numerous new improvements and content updates that recently arrived in the PC Open Beta. The Mastery system offers a new way for Slayers to hone their skills, earn experience, unlock achievements, and acquire new rewards. Each Behemoth and weapon has its own unique Mastery card for players to delve into.
Slayers can also look forward to a massive campaign rework. Everything from questing and crafting to meeting other Slayers and pursuing Behemoths has received massive updates. The rework also introduces a brand new “End of Hunt” screen, providing Slayers with a wealth of information, including progress made in various Mastery cards, quest rewards, Behemoth break parts earned, and more.
To celebrate the launch, a new Hunt Pass season will arrive where players will find the new Moon Blossom Festival. During the event, players can earn "a huge variety of thematic gear to flaunt their inner ninja". There are 50 levels of content in both basic and Elite versions that see a number of cosmetic rewards and premium currency rewarded throughout the event.
