'Dauntless' Closed Beta Begins Today - Trailer

by Rainier on Sept. 1, 2017 @ 7:56 a.m. PDT

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.

Phoenix Labs is launching Dauntless into Closed Beta for PC today at 12:00pm PT. During this early access period, Phoenix Labs will continue to collect feedback and develop the world of Dauntless as a fun, challenging, and highly rewarding experience.

The Closed Beta will build upon Dauntless’ live service, delivering regular updates that hone and expand the gameplay experience. Slayers can look forward to new content including Behemoths, weapons and armor, islands, story expansions and much more in the Closed Beta and beyond. Players interested in beginning their journey as a Slayer can purchase one of the exclusive Founder’s Pack for immediate access to the beta.

Phoenix Labs invites attendees at PAX West in Seattle, Washington to join the hunt and play the Dauntless beta from September 1-4, 2017 at their booth (#2335). Slayers who emerge victorious from battle will be granted access to the beta and earn other exclusive rewards.

“The Founder’s Alpha has been an inspirational experience for everyone here at Phoenix Labs. We’ve been collaborating with community, iterating on feedback, and improving Dauntless every day.” said Jesse Houston, Co-Founder and Executive Producer, Phoenix Labs. “Dauntless is a living game that we’ll be continuing to evolve, grow and expand through Closed Beta, Open Beta and beyond. Today’s Closed Beta launch marks the beginning of an amazing  journey we’ll be taking with the Dauntless community for years to come.”

Players can also register at  the official website to reserve their name and for an opportunity to be selected to participate in the Dauntless Closed Beta.

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.
