Free-to-play Dauntless passes five million players


Phoenix Labs’ free-to-play RPG Dauntless has amassed over five million players, just over a week after launch.

Phoenix Labs announced the milestone on its Twitter feed, saying: “More than FIVE MILLION players have answered the call and become Slayers. The Behemoth threat isn’t slowing down and neither are we. #LiveForTheHunt.”

The co-op monster-hunting RPG, in which players team up to slay the Behemoths which roam the Shattered Isles, is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (via the Epic Games Store) and Phoenix Labs has promised that it will also bring the game to Nintendo’s Switch. It was released on May 21 after a lengthy beta period, and offers true cross-platform gameplay.

Due to its lengthy beta period, Dauntless has already entered Season 3 of its Hunt Pass – full details of the rewards that offers, plus the tweaks and patches it adds to the game, can be found here. The latest patch notes can be found here.
