Dauntless Cross Platform - How to Opt-in to Dauntless Crossplay and Account Link

Here's all you need to know about Dauntless' cross-play features, including how to link accounts, and more.

While Dauntless was originally available only on PC in early access, it's now fully launched on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. It's actually the first game to feature cross platform crossplay between PS4 and Xbox One at launch. In this Dauntless crossplay guide, we'll be providing you with all the information you need to know about playing with PC, PS4, and Xbox One players no matter which platform you're on.

Is Dauntless Cross Platform for Crossplay?

The answer to this question is simply yes, Dauntless does support cross-play between PC, PS4, and Xbox One platforms. While it was previously only on PC while in early access, it's now launched properly on all three platforms, although the game is still entirely free to download and play.

But enabling Dauntless cross-play is something that you need to manually opt in for. When you boot up and sign into the game for the first time, on PC, PS4, or Xbox One, you'll be asked by the game whether you want to enable cross-play. It seems like the default option with Dauntless is that cross-play is disabled, and so you need to select 'Enable' when prompted when you first sign into the game.

If you opt to forgo cross-play in Dauntless, you'll be strictly limited to playing alongside the players on your platform only. So in other words, if you want a wider pool of players for the game to matchmake with so you can join them on hunts, you're going to want to enable cross-play in Dauntless.

How to Link Your Dauntless Account

But what happens if you want to play Dauntless on more than one platform? Turns out Dauntless actually supports cross-saving between platforms at launch, as well as cross-play. But to do this you'll need to create a Dauntless account to begin playing.

To even begin playing Dauntless, you'll need an account. We'd recommend heading over to the official Dauntless website, and creating an account straight away. Now if you're playing on either PS4 or Xbox One, when you go to boot up the game for the first time, you can select the 'Sign In' option to log into your existing account from the Dauntless website.

You'll now be prompted to head to PlayDauntless.com/link. Here, you'll get a code that you can put into your platform of choice, to immediately sign into your existing account. This basically means that if you ever switch platforms, you can take your Dauntless account and progress with you, without having to worry about your character being completely wiped and you having to start over.
