Phoenix Labs Presents Dauntless, the Next Evolution of Co-Op Action RPGs
Phoenix Labs, an independent game studio built on the foundation of delivering great games for players to enjoy together, has revealed their debut title at the 2016 Game Awards with Dauntless. Dauntless is an online co-op action role-playing game (RPG) set in an untamed science-fantasy world. Players take on the role of elite warriors known as Slayers who protect humanity by hunting ferocious Behemoths. Dauntless is being created by a team of industry veterans from BioWare, Riot Games, and other acclaimed studios, led by co-founders, Jesse Houston, Sean Bender and Robin Mayne.
The world of Dauntless has been shattered by a cataclysmic event, creating a vast array of uncharted and majestic floating islands. Behemoths, as cunning as they are vicious, consume the land, and it’s up to the Slayers to hunt them down before they destroy what remains of the world. Slayers will explore an ever-changing frontier, brimming with verdant flora and unique wildlife.
In Dauntless, Slayers can go at it alone or join cooperative parties with up to four people to take on the Behemoth threat. No two encounters are alike – each brings its own unique challenges and rewards. To survive on the Shattered Isles, players collect rewards from their hunts to upgrade their arsenal of weapons and armor in a deep and robust crafting system.
Dauntless will be available as a free-to-play downloadable game on PC in 2017.
“The co-op multiplayer game’s premiere trailer, above, shows off its dystopian fantasy setting. Up to four players assume the roles of warriors called Slayers, who make their home in this post-apocalyptic world. As hopeless as it all seems, the Slayers craft stronger weapons and travel the world’s floating islands, hunting down giant creatures before they can destroy what does remain.
Dauntless takes after the Dark Souls and Monster Hunter series, Phoenix Labs co-founder Jesse Houston said in a statement to press. Unlike those titles, this game will be a free-to-play, downloadable title.”
