New Gameplay Today – Dauntless
Dauntless is now in open beta, which means that you can check out the free-to-play monster-hunting game at this very moment! If you're not sure you're ready to commit the hard-drive space to Phoenix Labs' game, don't worry! Dan Tack walks Leo and I through the game's basics, and you can make up your own mind from there.
Tack doesn't swat me out of my chair for saying it looks a lot like World of Warcraft meets Monster Hunter, so I might be onto something there. Basically, you and a small group of players meet up, kill some monsters, and craft new gear from their corpses. Unlike Capcom's series, this one's a free download – though you can spend your brains out on cosmetic microtransactions. Check it out, okay?!
