If you love the action-packed monster hunting kinds of games like Monster Hunter, then you should know about Dauntless project - an ongoing project to create a cross-platform hunting game. The game is currently available in open beta on PC only for now, though.


However, that will change in next year, as Dauntless will also be available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in April, and later in 2019 for Nintendo Switch and mobile. On PC, the game will be published on the new Epic Games Store.

Dauntless is the project from Phoenix Labs, a studio founded by former League of Legends developers. The game takes place in a fantasy world (like all the monster hunting games), where a cataclysmic event has torn the world apart, releasing monster-like creatures known as Behemoths that prey on the surviving humans.

In the game, the player will take on the role of Slayers to take down Behemoths, collecting loot that they use to craft and upgrade weapons and equipment as to take down larger and more powerful Behemoths. While hunting, the game plays like a third-person action game; the player uses a combo system to attack the creature while monitoring their own health and stamina gauge. Such hunts can take upwards of twenty minutes of in-game time to complete. The game can be played both as single-player or cooperatively with up to four people.

The team's ultimate goal for 2019 is to make the cross-platform play for all versions of the game available, although there's no timetable yet for that.

Dauntless' beta version of the game on PC has recently received a new update, which is the wintery-sounding Frostfall, alongside a new monster for you to fight. There is a plan to release a "battle pass" to provide players with even more goodies, too, and the pass will cost around $10 each.
