Phoenix Labs, the team behind the co-op action RPG Dauntless, has been updating the game for quite some time. They’ve introduced new things like weapons, cosmetics, locations, and behemoths to the game that have breathed fresh air. With that content plan in mind, the team is finally ready to release their next update. The team announces today that Dauntless will be receiving its Call of the Void update on June 11th. It will be available on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PS4, and PC through the Epic Games Store. To go with the update, the team released a launch trailer that showcases everything you can expect.
Dauntless Call of the Void’s biggest change is a new Escalation, known as the Umbral Escalation. Players venture into the depths of an entirely new island, filled with behemoths corrupted by the umbral element. These new behemoths have enhanced move sets and will take some getting used to before you can properly take them down. Taking down the behemoths leads up to an epic fight against the Behemoth Thrax, a serpent creature that is sure to prove a challenge. Those who manage to live through the challenge get access to new legendary weapons and a new Slayer ability. We’ll let you take it down and see the new ability for yourself.
That’s of course not all introduced in this Dauntless update. There’s also the new Training Grounds, which lets you test your skills and weapons in a place free of the worry of death. You’ll get all the stats you could ask for, along with the ability to join in with your party. Looking beyond, you have a new pass to work through known as the “Relics and Ruin” pass and an evolving narrative over the course of the season. The update promises to provide much more for players to equip and experience, and we hope you enjoy what they have to offer. You can experience the Umbral forces when Dauntless‘ Call of the Void update releases this Thursday.
