Monster Hunter-like 'Dauntless' gets cross-play between Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, more in 2019

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.

At Phoenix Labs we define ourselves through a transparent development relationship with our community and strong focus on inclusivity, both at the studio and in our game. With our upcoming platform launches in April and One Dauntless, we will soon be able to welcome and connect players worldwide like never before. The journey of Dauntless is just beginning in the ever-evolving online world of the Shattered Isles, and we're excited to share many more years of experiences with our players.

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.
