Dauntless Releases First Content Update, "The Coming Storm"

New Behemoth, island, and gear included.

Dauntless, a Monster Hunter-like game on PC from Phoenix Labs just put out its first ever content update, The Coming Storm. The new update is out now for free and adds new areas to explore and monsters to slay.

Dauntless is an online action game where players join up, explore new islands, hunt large monsters, and maybe earn enough loot to craft yourself a new weapon or gear. The new Coming Storm update, which is available for free right now, introduces a new Behemoth to hunt called Koshai. But Koshai's destruction is causing other Behemoths to evolve as well.

Alongside the new island and monsters are a new faction called the Ostians who bring with them a new mastery over technology opening up Ostian gear to earn. New quests will reveal more about this new group, and helping them will give you new items and weapons for combat.

"The Coin Storm delivers on our vision for the living, breathing and constantly evolving experience of Dauntless," says Phoenix Labs CEO and co-founder Jesse Houston. Dauntless is available now for free and has a playerbase of more than 2 million players. Phoenix Labs also says that over the next couple of weeks more content will be coming to Dauntless including new exotic gear and the first fully ranged weapon the Ostian Repeaters.
