Veteran Developers from BioWare, Riot Games, Capcom and Blizzard
Debut their Vision for Online Gaming with Dauntless, coming to PCs
Worldwide in 2017
LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Phoenix Labs, an independent game studio built on the foundation of
delivering great games for players to enjoy together, has revealed their
debut title at the 2016 Game Awards with Dauntless. 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 world of Dauntless has been shattered by a cataclysmic event,
creating a vast array of uncharted and majestic floating islands.
Behemoths, as cunning as they are vicious, consume the land, and it’s up
to the Slayers to hunt them down before they destroy what remains of the
world. Slayers will explore an ever-changing frontier, brimming with
verdant flora and unique wildlife.
“Phoenix Labs is made up of the most talented and passionate game
developers in the world,” said Jesse Houston, co-founder and President
at Phoenix Labs. “We make games because we love to play them, and we
want to share these experiences with gamers everywhere. We’ve taken
inspiration from games like Dark Souls, Monster Hunter, and World of
Warcraft to create a new, gripping gaming experience.”
In Dauntless, Slayers can go at it alone or join cooperative
parties with up to four people to take on the Behemoth threat. No two
encounters are alike – each brings its own unique challenges and
rewards. To survive on the Shattered Isles, players collect rewards from
their hunts to upgrade their arsenal of weapons and armor in a deep and
robust crafting system.
Dauntless will be available as a free-to-play downloadable game
on PC in 2017.
