Dauntless reveals The Coming Storm expansion, celebrates 2 million players

Dauntless open beta begins

The free-to-play co-op action RPG Dauntless is in open beta since May 2018 and developer Phoenix Labs is now celebrating the two million registered players milestone. Great numbers indeed, and what better way there is to celebrate than by announcing the next major content update?

Called The Coming Storm, this expansion will land on the Shattered Isles on August 9, and is obviously another piece of free content. This will bring some changes to Ramsgate, as an Ostian Dreadnaught crashes into the hub city of the game, bringing several new NPCs, stories and quests. There is a new behemoth on the horizon, Koshai, the Sovereign of Thorns, as well as new gear and weaponry, including explosive grenades and the first truly ranged weapon in Dauntless: the Ostian Repeaters. It seems that the introduction of Koshai is bringing an evolution to the other beasts in the game, changing beyond their usual behavior and looks.

“The Dauntless community is one of the most vocal and passionate groups of people in gaming, and they’ve helped us shape Dauntless into what it is today, and what it will become in the future,” said Jesse Houston, CEO and co-founder of Phoenix Labs. “With The Coming Storm we’re putting community feedback into action , debuting the first fully ranged weapon, and players will see a decidedly new and fresh Dauntless experience on August 9.”
