Dauntless is going cross-platform on PS4 and Xbox One

Phoenix Labs’ plans for 2019 are rather … dauntless … as we learned tonight at The Game Awards in Los Angeles. The studio is bringing its online action-RPG, Dauntless, to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in , with later moves to the Nintendo Switch and mobile platforms.

And it looks like Fortnite is going to have some cross- company on Sony’s console when it hits PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Dauntless is already already on PC. It’s calling this “One Dauntless,” which will offer a single login on all platforms in which the online game — think a free-to-play take on Capcom’s phenomenal Monster series — appears.

“The current plan is to launch on both consoles simultaneously, along with ’s new platform, the Games . Our vision for One Dauntless, the cross-platform system that will enable you to take your Dauntless account with you wherever you go, is still evolving and growing in real time,” said Phoenix Labs cofounder and CEO Jesse Houston over email.

The studio also announced its Frostfall Holiday event, a Hunt , and a new beast to hunt: the behemoth Valomyr.

Chilly time

Dauntless got its first expansion in August, when the free-to-play multiplayer game had more than 2 players. Houston says they’re closing in on 3 players and might crest this mark before New Year’s Day. The April console launch date, he adds, enables Phoenix Labs to deal with any issues getting through certification while setting up a series of events leading up to Dauntless’s PS4 and Xbox One debuts.

“One Dauntless” will work on all platforms, and you’ll be able to carry over your character, progression, customization, and any items you’ve purchased on any device.

The Frostfall update launches today. As the name implies, the Shattered Isles (the setting for Dauntless) is in for a big chill. This also brings in a new behemoth (the beasts you hunt) — Valomyr. Phoenix Labs is also ushering in a $10 Hunt Pass, which offers a bevy of activities, challenges, items, emotes, and cosmetics.
