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.

Cross-progression is included as well across all devices. This announcement is marked with a free Stormchasers update which is free across all platforms. Content includes the challenging new gameplay experience Escalation, a new type of sequential hunt that features dual Behemoth encounters in addition to a number of elements of the “roguelike” genre.

Additionally, a new Hunt Pass, Myth & Legend, offers Slayers the opportunity to explore the history and heroism of Ramsgate.

“It’s a dream come true for us to offer Slayers the chance to bring Dauntless with them wherever they go with Nintendo Switch,” said Jesse Houston, CEO and co-founder, Phoenix Labs in a press release. “The Switch offers versatility and mobility like no other platform on the market, and with our latest content update and release in Japan, the future is bright for Slayers around the world.”


The new Escalation will present you to fight against waves of Behemoths imbued with unique modifiers. These waves are procedurally generated as well. Earning a high enough Escalation level by the end of the fourth encounter gives Slayers the opportunity to face their most difficult test yet - Malkarion. Malkarion is the first Behemoth in Dauntless that gives Slayers a chance to mount their prey, and its unique move-set introduces a number of mechanics that will challenge even the most veteran Slayers on the Shattered Isles.
