Today, developer Phoenix Labs announced that Dauntless, an online action game, will be expanding to consoles and mobile in 2019. The game should launch on Xbox One on April 11, 2019. According to the team, the upcoming platform launches also bring the game closer to "One Dauntless," a vision that provides players with seamless cross-platform play, progression, and account management.
Just like Fortnite, players will be able to enjoy cross-platform hunts with their friends whether they are playing on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch or mobile. Phoenix Labs head Jesse Houston said the following about the console launch.
It's great to see that this game will be cross-play between a variety of devices. Dauntless' next major content update, called "Frostfall," will reshape the "Shattered Isles." The patch ushers in brand new seasonal content as a deep freeze descends on "Ramsgate," and "Slayers" will also have a chilling challenge on their hands with the introduction of a new "Behemoth"
Dauntless will be a free download supported through cosmetic microtransactions on Xbox One and other platforms.
