Here's a summary:
Today Phoenix Labs is launching the “Clear Skies”
content update for Dauntless, welcoming Slayers to a completely redesigned hub
city of Ramsgate. The update also includes a fully reworked sword kit, with new
combos and special attack gauge, upgrades to Umbral Escalation, the “Clear
Skies” Hunt Pass, and more. The free update arrives today on PlayStation 4, Xbox
One, the Epic Games Store, and Nintendo Switch.
The Ramsgate redesign showcases a completely new layout for the hub city,
and features numerous points of interest and new structures housing Ramsgate’s
denizens. The city now offers unique soundscapes for a variety of areas and
NPCs, creating a more immersive Ramsgate experience. Players can also populate
their journals by interacting with characters and objects to unlock lore about
the Shattered Isles and its inhabitants. The city also now includes a racing
mini-game, so players can challenge their friends to a footrace across the city.
The Sword has received a full design overhaul, and players can experience the
new kit starting today. In addition to new combos, the sword now utilizes a
Valour system built around 3 main components: core combos (which generate
Valour), Valour combos (which cost Valour), and special meter (which lets
players execute the currently-equipped special move). Valour combos open up a
number of new combat actions for the sword, including an “area of effect”
attack, as well as mid- and long-ranged attacks.
The Clear Skies Hunt Pass launches as part of the update today, allowing Slayers
to earn up to 50 levels of rewards, including cosmetics, bounty tokens,
consumables, and more, themed around the celebration of new adventures following
the rebuilding of Ramsgate. For the first time, Slayers can earn an exotic
weapon--The Hunger sword--through the Hunt Pass.
“Clear Skies” introduces a number of quality of life improvements and other
features, including new amps and modifiers in Umbral Escalation.
