Just like us, you probably have a few unanswered questions about Dauntless, the co-op action RPG coming this year, and Phoenix Entertainment decided to clear your doubts. Well, possibly, as this mini FAQ really goes straight to the point.
So, let’s begin. There’s controller support, so you’re not limited to playing with the keyboard and mouse; Character customization is part of the game, and apparently there’s “tons” of it, so this is good news, and there aren’t any pre-made Slayers, so it’s all up to you. The open beta is planned for Fall 2017 and the game will have dedicated servers. There’s no trading in the game, so there’s no way in hell you’re going to barter with that other players for that piece of gear, you have to earn it. Weapons at launch are Sword, Axe, Hammer, Chain Blades, a ranged weapon and one more that is still a secret.
And finally, “Free to play; never pay to win”. Cross your fingers and let’s hope that the first closed beta isn’t too far, certainly during the Summer.
