If you haven't geared up to hunt down some Behemoths in Phoenix Labs' Dauntless, today wouldn't be a bad day to start: the game just received its 1.0 update, taking it out of early access alongside a new seasonal update.
To commemorate the 1.0 launch and the release of Dauntless' new update, Aether Unbound, Phoenix Labs also put out a new trailer for its free-to-play action RPG. The trailer gives a good look at Dauntless' newest weapon type: aether strikers, energy-amplying gauntlets that let your character unleash devastating combos on Behemoths with their fists.
This update brings Dauntless' weapon total up to seven, and there's a brand new Behemoth you can hack, bludgeon, or punch your way through: the Tempestborne Stormclaw. It looks like a mean, nasty blue dragon, and Phoenix Labs warns that it's one of the faster Behemoths in the game. If you're using those new aether strikers, keep in mind that you'll need to keep up with the Stormclaw to get your jabs in.
Described by USgamer's Mike Williams as the "Fortnite to Monster Hunter's PUBG," Dauntless first launched in early access for the PC in 2018 and has since been rolled out to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A Switch release of Dauntless is planned for later this year. Dauntless supports co-op (a necessity for hunting down the game's toughest Behemoths) as well as cross-play for all systems (a necessity for hunting down the game's toughest Behemoths... when your friends are on other platforms).
