Phoenix Labs Announced Date of Dauntless Beta

Phoenix Labs has announced the date of the Dauntless Open Beta. Phoenix Labs thanked everyone who had joined the Closed Beta and shared their feedback.

We’re dedicated to expanding the world of Dauntless with your continued feedback and inspiration. Open Beta is an exciting milestone, but we’re still far from done. We will continue to create the game that Slayers will be proud to call their own for years to come. You can stay up to date with what’s coming to Dauntless at the Dauntless Road Map.

Phoenix Labs said that the Open Beta signals a foundational level of stability and permanence. They will be looking to players to provide hands-on feedback with the new improvements and systems that are coming to the game.

In order to fully Beta test the changes that Phoenix Labs is making to progression, island exploration, and other systems, they will be performing two full-server wipes in the coming months. The first one will happen on May 2, coinciding with the release of a major update to progression and Evergame content. The second full-server wipe will take place on May 22, in preparation for the Open Beta.

Phoenix Labs will be announcing a reward structure for current Beta testers. “Depending on your progress in the current and future stages of the Closed Beta, you will receive special cosmetic items as a reward for your support.” More details about that will be coming soon.

Phoenix Labs Kicks Off Dauntless Closed Beta

Phoenix Labs has created a game called Dauntless, which is coming Free-to-Play to PC in 2017. The Founder’s Alpha has ended, and a Closed Beta has begun. Anyone who owns or purchases a Dauntless Founder’s Pack at any tier will be able to participate in the Dauntless Closed Beta.

Dauntless is a co-op, action RPG coming to PC, currently in early access. Battle ferocious Behemoths, craft powerful weapon, and forge your legend in the Shattered Isles.

The Closed Beta started on September 1, 2017, and will run until the Open Beta. (The start date of the Open Beta is “to be determined”.) The early stages of the Beta will be entirely populated by those who have purchased any of the Founder’s Packs.

I couldn’t find any information on the Dauntless website that gave details about what the Founder’s Pack’s cost or what they contain. GameSpot reported that each Founder’s Pack contains an assortment of items to use in-game.

The least expensive option is $40 and gives players “champion status” for 90 days, increasing Behemoth drops. GameSpot also says the Founder’s Packs include a kit of consumable items, an in-game title and forum icon, and an exclusive flare. There is also a $70 Hero pack, that comes with all of the above plus 10 Chromo Cores to dye your gear and 10 Transmog Stones to change your gear’s appearance.
