Dauntless enters open beta on May 24

Dauntless Open Beta

Dauntless Open Beta

While a bit under the radar, Dauntless has some legitimate promise.

Developer Phoenix Labs has announced that free-to-play co-operative behemoth hunter Dauntless will enter its open beta phase on May 24. Aspiring Slayers can experience the Dauntless Closed Beta today by purchasing a Founder's Pack.

Over 100K players have explored the Shattered Isles and slain Behemoths in the current Closed Beta, with another 700K Slayers signed up for the Open Beta.

If you've yet to see Dauntless for yourself, the game is quite similar to Monster Hunter World.

These Behemoths are described by the Phoenix Labs as "ferocious beasts, hungry to drain the very essence from the world". "Slayers will join up with other players and take down Behemoths together, bringing their spoils to the frontier city of Ramsgate to craft new weapons and armor". As popular as Monster Hunter is - especially its newest release, Monster Hunter: World - the franchise does not have much direct competition. The Open Beta also marks the end of the Dauntless Founder's Program, an opportunity for Slayers to receive exclusive Founder's rewards and early access to the game. The developers have promised that you'll find no pay-to-win mechanics, pay walls or loot boxes.

The development team has a four year plan in place for Dauntless. Players can spend money on an in-game store that offers cosmetic and vanity items. "As we close in on our next phase of this adventure, we thank our passionate community that has been with us from day-one, providing feedback and helping craft the experience into what it is today".

Dauntless will be available to download and play for free on May 24 as part of the Open Beta experience.
