New Free-to-play game Dauntless is launching on PS4, Xbox One and PC today.
And not only will it be free to download on each platform but it will also include crossplay.
It has now been confirmed that Dauntless will be one of the first ever games to launch with Crossplay included on Day One for all three platforms.
Other titles like Fortnite and Rocket League also have the built-in feature, however, their fanbases had to wait years for it to become available.
So if Crossplay is indeed available on Dauntless right now, it means you should be able to share one account across platforms, while also having the option to play with everyone too.
According to a new press release from developers Phoenix Labs, today’s launch fulfills Phoenix Labs’ promise of “One Dauntless,” a cross-platform and cross-progression system that enables players to take their Dauntless account with them wherever they go, and allows players to team up with others around the world regardless of their platform of choice.
“After a year in Open Beta and a ton of great feedback from over 3 million Dauntless players, we’re proud to bring our game to console and expand our PC audience through the Epic Games store,” said Jesse Houston, CEO and Co-founder, Phoenix Labs.
“When we first started talking about ‘One Dauntless,’ we knew it was a truly audacious goal. No one has ever launched on console with full cross-play support from the start, but we believed in our vision and, thankfully, our friends at Epic Games, Sony, and Microsoft did too.
“Keeping the community connected is one of our top priorities, and with all the new players coming in at launch, there’s never been a better time to be a Slayer in Dauntless.”
The Dauntless Gameplay loop revolves around hunting down and slaying monsters, alongside a group of other players.
The good news is that Dauntless players on PS4 do not need an active PS Plus account for online play.
As a Slayer, players take on boss-sized monsters, forge mighty weapons, and craft armour from the creatures they slay — all in a free-to-play online world setting.
The version of Dauntless being released today is different from the one that has been available in early access on PC.
The Mastery system now offers a new way for players to hone their skills, earn experience, unlock achievements, and acquire new rewards.
Questing and crafting to meeting other players and pursuing Behemoths has received massive updates, according to Phoenix Labs.
The rework also introduces a brand new “End of Hunt” screen, providing players with a wealth of information, including progress made in various Mastery cards, quest rewards and Behemoth break parts earned.
Dauntless is a free game you can download from the PlayStation Store and has been released with its own version of a Battle Pass.
The new Hidden Blades Hunt Pass offers 50 levels of content across both the basic and Elite tracks, along with cosmetic rewards and premium currency.
