Dauntless Celebrates 2M Players; The Coming Storm Coming Next Month

Phoenix Labs announces more than two million players have checked out Dauntless since the launch of their co-op action/RPG into open beta testing. They celebrate the milestone by saying The Coming Storm is coming on August 9th, adding a free content expansion to the free-to-play game. Here's the plan:

Phoenix Labs, an independent development studio dedicated to making games for players to share for years to come, today announced that their free-to-play co-op Action-RPG Dauntless has hit a pivotal 2 million player milestone since launching into Open Beta in late May, 2018. To celebrate the milestone, Phoenix Labs has announced that the next major content expansion in Dauntless, The Coming Storm, will further evolve the Shattered Isles for players worldwide on August 9th - all free to play.

The Coming Storm begins when an Ostian Dreadnaught, bristling with industrial might and an indignant crew, crashes into Ramsgate, the central hub in Dauntless, reshaping the sprawling city and introducing players to a variety of new NPCs, stories, and quests. A new Behemoth, Koshai, the Sovereign of Thorns, stirs beyond the horizon. Members of the Ostian faction also bring with them new technology. Players will be able to craft and wield new gear and weaponry to take on the Behemoth threat - including a explosive new grenades and the first truly ranged weapon: the Ostian Repeaters.

Players will notice a distinct (and deadly) change to the Behemoth ecosystem in The Coming Storm as the introduction of Koshai causes the other beasts to evolve and change beyond their usual behavior and form. Expect a new spin of classic encounters and keep Slayers’ skills honed.

“The Dauntless community is one of the most vocal and passionate groups of people in gaming, and they’ve helped us shape Dauntless into what it is today, and what it will become in the future,” said Jesse Houston, CEO and co-founder of Phoenix Labs. “With The Coming Storm we’re putting community feedback into action , debuting the first fully ranged weapon, and players will see a decidedly new and fresh Dauntless experience on August 9.”
