Dauntless comes to consoles and Epic Games Store in April

Dauntless is a free-to-play MMO Monster Hunter-like coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in April 2019, as well as a final release out of beta on the Epic Games Store for PC. A new trailer was shown at The Game Awards, and developer Phoenix Labs posted a summary overview for the game's console and final release.

Dauntless will also come to Nintendo Switch and mobile devices at a later time.

Dauntless can currently be downloaded on PC in open beta now for free here. More information about the game's current patch news and events can be found on the game's website.

Here's an overview from Phoenix Labs, and screenshots can be found in the gallery below.


Now that our secret is out, we can finally share a little more about what to expect in the months to come. While we don’t have all the details yet, we will be sharing (as always) as we go forward. What we can tell you about is the “One Dauntless” vision.

“One Dauntless” is the star we’re aiming for. It is a cross-platform system that will enable you to take your Dauntless account with you wherever you go, and allow you to play Dauntless with Slayers around the world regardless of their platform of choice. As we move forward, we will be looking into all of the ways we can make this happen.


Here’s everything we can share so far about our upcoming launches.


Console testing is already in full swing at our Vancouver and San Mateo studios. We’ve got test kits set up and developers making (and breaking) builds for each of the systems. Optimization has been a big focus for us in these last few patches, and we’ve also been working hard to make Dauntless even more gamepad-friendly. If you play with a gamepad on PC, you’ve probably already seen some of these improvements at work. Tell us what you think!

As we announced at The Game Awards, we will be coming to both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in April 2019. Dauntless will be free to play on both.


Dauntless will also be launching in April 2019 on the Epic Games store – a new game distribution platform from the makers of Fortnite. We’re super excited to join Ashen, Hades, and other amazing games in this brand-new space, and we hope that you’ll love it just as much as we do. We’ll do a deeper dive into Epic accounts and details in the near future.

Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android will come later. We don’t have any details to share at the moment, but we’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we do. For now, our focus is on making sure that our Epic, PlayStation, and Xbox launches go smoothly.
