Dauntless Open Beta

Phoenix Labs announces the launch of open beta testing of Dauntless, their co-op action/RPG. You can download the client from the Dauntless Website where they offer all the details on the game. A new trailer celebrates the beta, and they also recently launched the Intro Cinematic to set the scene. Here are the details:
Slayers unite! Today, Phoenix Labs, an independent game development studio made up of industry veterans from Riot Games, BioWare, Capcom, and more launched Dauntless into Open Beta on PC worldwide. Dauntless is the next evolution of online co-op action RPGs, built upon a living, breathing world that will continue to grow and expand for years to come. Aspiring Slayers can join the one million plus who have already registered for Dauntless and download the game free-to-play and adventure across the science-fantasy universe of the Shattered Isles together by visiting: www.playdauntless.com

In Dauntless, players take up the mantle of Slayers. These brave warriors fight for humanity’s survival against ferocious beasts known as Behemoths, whose savage hunger to drain the very essence, or aether, from the world puts every life at risk. Equipped with powerful armor and weapons, Slayers will join up with others and adventure across the Shattered Isles to battle Behemoths together. After each battle, Slayers bring their hard-earned spoils to the frontier city of Ramsgate to craft, enhance and customize their arsenal to take on the next challenging encounter. The team at Phoenix Labs is committed to building Dauntless as an evolving experience. Expect new expansions, adventures, deadly Behemoths and more - all on a regular basis and all free-to-play.

“Open Beta is an exciting next step for us, but it is just the beginning for what we have planned for Dauntless,” said Jesse Houston, CEO and co-founder of Phoenix Labs. “For the past four years we’ve been dedicated to creating the next, great online game for players to share together, and Open Beta is the next huge step in fulfilling our promise. We will be continually adding content and updates to Dauntless and incorporating feedback from our passionate community. We are committed to providing more and more reasons for players to come back to Dauntless for years to come.”

Slayers will also forge their legend through a robust Evergame experience that offers a multitude of challenges and activities once they complete the main campaign. From fiendish Dire Behemoths and heroic difficulties, to unique hunt modifiers encouraging Slayers to adapt their strategies, the Evergame offers a multitude of challenges and promises powerful rewards (including Exotic gear) to those who answer the call. The Dauntless experience will continue to offer players new and unique ways to engage with the world and community for years to come.

I like the Disney-esque style. Hey, if the game is good, I don't really care about the graphics. Just give me something that's actually fun to play. Way too many boring games these days.

The land in Minecraft is flat, Minecraft simulates the Earth, ergo the Earth is flat.

These monster hunter games look like they'd get repetitive extremely quickly. Will hopefully get a chance to check it out at some point though.

It was super tedious last time I played it, just wailing on monsters and hoping to hit the right part to knock it off (need certain parts for crafting), or other people wouldn't cooperate...

And it was pretty linear in terms of crafting, too.

When I played, the player base was far more toxic than I had expected given the style of game.

Add that to single player being nearly impossible, as you get no revives, and multiplayer being absurdly easy because you could near infinitely revive chain eachother even with only a second person, and I'd have to say that it may be a far better idea to just wait for Monster Hunter World, even though that game costs money. It's not even a fair comparison.

Yeah just looking at some gameplay vids was very meh inspiring. These guys are clearly trying to capitalize on every well worn style there is and hope it sticks. It won't.

Perhaps your version was lacking in lots of content and was more of a game mechanics or other kind of test?

Played this a while back, just couldn't get into it. it just wasn't all that fun. and it seemed like the same monsters and fighting over and over. Should be renamed Pointless!

Looks like Fortnight to me. Nearly identical, not counting the UI.
