Things had gone a bit quiet on the Dauntless front – last time we checked in, the game’s closed alpha had just gone live, back in August. Now Phoenix Labs is about ready to throw the doors open on their colorful monster-hunting co-op romp, with an open beta set to launch May 24.
The Shattered Isles can be a little confusing at first, so check out our guide to getting started in Dauntless.
Dauntless is a game about hunting and killing gigantic and legally-distinct beasts called behemoths across an archipelago of floating islands called the Shattered Isles. You accept quests, head out on flying steampunk airships, slay ravenous behemoths, and bring home materials to use to craft beefier weapons and armor.
