hoenix Labs, an independent game studio built on the foundation of delivering AAA experiences for players to enjoy together, launched their free-to-play co-op Action-RPG Dauntless on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Epic Games store today. Dauntless represents a major milestone in the games industry as the first ever game to launch with true cross-play functionality across all platforms. The launch fulfills Phoenix Labs’ promise of “One Dauntless,” a cross-platform and cross-progression system that enables players to take their Dauntless account with them wherever they go, and allows players to team up with others around the world regardless of their platform of choice.
“After a year in Open Beta and a ton of great feedback from over 3 million Dauntless players, we’re proud to bring our game to console and expand our PC audience through the Epic Games store,” said Jesse Houston, CEO and Co-founder, Phoenix Labs. “When we first started talking about ‘One Dauntless,’ we knew it was a truly audacious goal. No one has ever launched on console with full cross-play support from the start, but we believed in our vision and, thankfully, our friends at Epic Games, Sony, and Microsoft did too. Keeping the community connected is one of our top priorities, and with all the new players coming in at launch, there’s never been a better time to be a Slayer in Dauntless.”
Dauntless arrives on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the Epic Games store with numerous improvements and content updates. The Mastery system offers a new way for players 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.
