Dauntless players will soon have even more ways to slay, as the folks at Phoenix Labs have announced that their hit kill-and-craft action MMORPG will be hitting PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Epic Games Store next week on Tuesday, May 21st. The game’s console release will coincide with the commencement of Hunt Pass Season Five: Hidden Blades, which “transforms the world of Dauntless into a Moon Blossom Festival and offers Slayers a huge variety of thematic gear to flaunt their inner ninja.”

The PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game will launch with all of the content currently available in the PC version, including the recently added Mastery system, which “offers a new way for Slayers to hone their skills, earn experience, and acquire new rewards” as they complete achievements to fill out Mastery cards unique to each weapon and Behemoth in the game. And Slayers on all platforms can look forward to the upcoming campaign rework that will update almost every facet of the game “from questing and crafting to meeting other Slayers and pursuing Behemoths.” Players can download and play Dauntless for free when it goes live on PS4, Xbox One, and the Epic Games Store next week.

This is going to be interesting to see. On Playstation in particular there are a LOT of hunting games that quietly chug along with dedicated fanbases. Off the top of my head i can think of:
-Monster Hunter, obviously
-God Eater
-Toukiden
-Freedom Wars
-Soul Sacrifice
-Lord of Arcana

and thats series, some like God Eater has diehard fans that stick with each new release, others that vehemently stick to an earlier game because they like the feel. Its a weird situation where the competition on PC bar MHW seems largely like novelty games whereas on console they really became this dedicated subgenre of obsessed hardcore fans around the late 2000’s and the trouble there is the core audience you want to target has lots of options and already has a series they are ‘locked in for the duration’ with, even if in some cases its a dead series that still just has a dedicated fanbase like Freedom Wars, and how does Dauntless lure them away?

Nice, I played it a long while ago, maybe as much as a year ago. Back then it was fun but definitely needed more work, I wonder what it’s like now.
