Monster hunting title Dauntless is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Tuesday, 21 May 2019 it's been confirmed by the developer Phoenix Labs. On the same day, the early access title will also arrive to PC as Epic Store exclusive.
After a year in early access, Phoenix Point's monster hunting title Dauntless is finally launching on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on 21 May 2019. On PC, the game will swap Valve's platform Steam and head to Epic Games Store as an exclusive title.
The release date announcement is a surprising one, given that the developers earlier hinted Summer 2019 as a potential release window. However, thanks to an easier approval process on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One than expected, the game is now set to launch a couple of months earlier said Nick Clifford, director marketing at Phoenix Labs, in an interview with GamesBeat.
In addition to the PC version, Epic Games will also publish Dauntless on consoles it's been confirmed by the developer. Previously, Phoenix Labs self-published the early access version of Dauntless on the PC via their own website.
On launch, Dauntless will support cross-play between PC and Xbox One but the feature won't be implemented in time for PlayStation 4 as the devs still work with Sony to bring the feature to their flagship console.
According to Nick Clifford, Epic Games devs are also helping to bring the crossplay to PlayStation 4 as soon as possible. "It’s a complex problem set that they are working out internally, and the Epic team is working it out too," Clifford said.
Dauntless will offer Hunt Pass Season 5: Hidden Blades on the launch, which will transform the world into a Moon Blossom Festival with a huge variety of thematic gear. You will be able to level up your character to 50 and earn cosmetics as well as the premium currency.
The full launch also brings a fresh batch of improvements and content updates, which recently dropped on PC. These include the new Mastery system and you can find more about that here.
