Dauntless is a free-to-play online co-op action RPG for PC created by a team of veterans from BioWare, Riot Games, Capcom and Blizzard. Set in a science-fantasy world, Dauntless puts players in the shoes and armor of elite warriors known as Slayers who protect humanity by hunting dangerous Behemoths. While it sounds a bit like Capcom’s Monster Hunter Online – and this was indeed one of the inspirations -, Dauntless also takes some cues from games such as Dark Souls and World of Warcraft.
Players can hunt the behemoths solo or participate in cooperative combat with up to four players. Success brings rewards and the option to upgrade from hundreds of craftable weapons and armor. You can even use customized flares as a way of communicating with the other team members and showing your style.
With four behemoths (Pangar, Shrike, Embermane and Drask) planned for the beta/launch phase, more will surely join the roster and add some dangerous new tricks to the game.
