'Dauntless' Details Upcoming Sharpen Your Skills Closed Beta Update - Trailer

by Rainier on Dec. 4, 2017 @ 9:00 a.m. PST

Dauntless is an online co-op action RPG set in a savage science-fantasy world where up to 4 players work together to hunt down ferocious beasts called Behemoths.

Players take on the role of elite warriors known as Slayers who protect humanity by hunting ferocious Behemoths. Dauntless is being created by a team of industry veterans from BioWare, Riot Games, and other acclaimed studios, led by co-founders, Jesse Houston, Sean Bender and Robin Mayne.

The world of Dauntless has been shattered by a cataclysmic event, creating a vast array of uncharted and majestic floating islands. Behemoths, as cunning as they are vicious, consume the land, and it’s up to the Slayers to hunt them down before they destroy what remains of the world. Slayers will explore an ever-changing frontier, brimming with verdant flora and unique wildlife.

The “Sharpen Your Skills” content update will be launching into the Closed Beta soon, and introduce a brand new weapon with the War Pike, new gear, two new behemoths for Slayers to take on in all new hunts, and many new combat and gameplay tweaks and enhancements to the core experience.

Here’s a brief summary of what players can expect when “Sharpen Your Skills” goes live on Friday, December 8:

  • Introduction of the 5th Weapon - The War Pike
  • Two New Behemoths - Skarn and Kharabak
  • New Hunting Progression System
  • Enhanced Combat and Weapon Damage Types
  • Cell System Equipment Augmentation
  • Frostfall Event Coming in December

In Dauntless, Slayers can go at it alone or join cooperative parties with up to four people to take on the Behemoth threat. No two encounters are alike - each brings its own unique challenges and rewards. To survive on the Shattered Isles, players collect rewards from their hunts to upgrade their arsenal of weapons and armor in a deep and robust crafting system.
