I confess that I don't love Dauntless. Despite a gorgeous art style, and some lovely creature design, its always felt a bit...thin. Its combat is simple, encounters repetitive and shallow compared to real raids, there's no world to explore and even its cosmetics system feels limited. I also dislike the fact the studio doesn't pay their translators, and instead relies on the generosity of their community, instead. That said, I do wish Phoenix Labs all the best, with 1.0 bringing a fair few things, including Aether Strikers, Tempestborne Stormclaw, the Bounty system, and more. There's a launch trailer below, teasing a new weapon set.
