Dauntless Open Beta Kicks Off in May; Dev Confirms Game Won’t Feature Lootboxes or Any Pay-to-Win Mechanism

Phoenix Labs’ anticipated co-op action RPG, Dauntless, is planned to go into its open beta phase soon enough.

Back in September 2017, the studio held a closed beta for the title, which featured more than 100K players up until now. This time, everyone will be able to participate starting from the 24th of May in Dauntless’ open beta and help Phoenix Labs shape the game’s final version. According to the statement provided by Phoenix Labs, feedback and conductive criticism will surely be taken into account during development while the studio tries to maintain a “deep, community-driven Closed Beta.”

The Dauntless Open Beta marks the next phase in an ongoing 4+ year journey of  development, feedback, and iteration including a deep, community-driven Closed Beta, which has been available since September 2017. Focused on making great gaming experiences for gamers to share together, Phoenix Labs has worked closely with the community to sharpen vital aspects of the Dauntless experience and drive the vision for the game forward. The Open Beta also marks the end of the Founder’s Program, an opportunity for Slayers to receive exclusive Founder’s rewards and early access to the game.  More than 75,000 Slayers have taken part in the Founders Program contributing to the early development of Dauntless.

Here is a brief description of Dauntless as well as the game’s closed beta trailer from last time.

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 game’s open beta kicks off on May 24th.
