After spending two weeks in Founder's Alpha, Dauntless, a Monster Hunter-like action-RPG, has now entered Closed Beta, available to anyone who owns a Founder, Slayer, or Champion support pack for the game. And to get people excited about this next step in their game's development, the folks at Phoenix Labs have released a new trailer. Check it out:
This press release tells us a bit about the Closed Beta and offers a tentative release date for the game:
VANCOUVER, SEPTEMBER 1 - Phoenix Labs is launching Dauntless, the highly anticipated online co-op action RPG, 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 Packs 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.”
Dauntless is the next evolution of online co-op action RPGs. Players will forge their legends as Slayers, elite warriors fighting for humanity's survival against ferocious Behemoths. A deep crafting system offers players an expansive arsenal of customized weapons and armor to create from the power of the Behemoths themselves. It’s up to Slayers to team up together in hunts of up to four players and put their skills to the test by taking the fight to the Behemoths.
In Dauntless, a cataclysmic event has shattered the land and shaped the untamed science-fantasy world known as the Shattered Isles. The skies are adrift with thousands of unexplored majestic floating islands that are stalked by savage Behemoths which are evolving and growing in power as they threaten humanity’s survival.
Dauntless will be available as a free-to-play downloadable game on PC in 2017.
