During its time in early access, the free-to-play co-op action RPG Dauntless attracted over 15 million players giving it a healthy audience to launch the full game to. Alongside this release comes the Aether Unbound expansion which is the largest seasonal expansion to date.
Aether Unbound features an all-new weapon, Behemoth, Hunt Pass, Bounty system and more. Dauntless is among the first games to feature full cross-platform support and is available to download now for free on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

“Today is the celebration and culmination of the past five years of the development of Dauntless, and the amazing community of Slayers that have supported the game, provided feedback and ultimately helped us craft the experience of the Shattered Isles.” said Jesse Houston, Phoenix Labs CEO and Co-Founder. “As we cross the 1.0 milestone and 15 million players, we as a studio could not be more excited to set our sights on the future of Dauntless.”
Aether Unbound, adds a powerful new way for Slayers to hunt: the aether strikers. The combo-heavy strikers transform Slayers into living weapons with the ability to unleash fast-moving attacks and powerful techniques. This update also adds the savage new Dire Behemoth, Tempestborne Stormclaw, a new Bounty system, and a Hunt Pass packed with special challenges and in-game rewards. The new Bounty system replaces weekly quests and Hunt Pass part breaks, empowering Slayers to pick and choose which bounties they are most interested in pursuing. Phoenix Labs also squashed more than 500 bugs on the road to its 1.0 launch.
Dauntless is available now on Xbox One, PS4 and PC via the Epic Games Store.
