Dauntless Celebrates 2M Players with Reveal of The Coming Storm Massive Content Expansion
MMO monster hunting game Dauntless is celebrating 2 million players. The free to play title hit the milestone earlier in the week, since launching open beta in late May this year. To celebrate, Phoenix Labs has announced that the next major content expansion in Dauntless, The Coming Storm. The expansion will further evolve the Shattered Isles for players worldwide on August 9th – all free to play.
The Coming Storm begins when an Ostian Dreadnaught, bristling with industrial might and an indignant crew, crashes into Ramsgate, the central hub in Dauntless, reshaping the sprawling city and introducing players to a variety of new NPCs, stories, and quests. A new Behemoth, Koshai, the Sovereign of Thorns, stirs beyond the horizon. Members of the Ostian faction also bring with them new technology. Players will be able to craft and wield new gear and weaponry to take on the Behemoth threat – including a explosive new grenades and the first truly ranged weapon: the Ostian Repeaters.
Players will notice a distinct (and deadly) change to the Behemoth ecosystem in The Coming Storm as the introduction of Koshai causes the other beasts to evolve and change beyond their usual behavior and form. Expect a new spin of classic encounters and keep Slayers’ skills honed.
“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.”
