Hello again, PlayStation.Blog readers! The last time I shared a post here, our team at Phoenix Labs had just announced that Dauntless was headed to PlayStation 4. Five months later, I’m happy to say that we’re now ready to welcome our PlayStation friends to the Shattered Isles. Starting tomorrow, May 21, you can download Dauntless on PS4, and it is completely free to play. We also have a special offer for PlayStation Plus subscribers in the form of six exclusive PlayStation-inspired Dauntless weapon skins. Check out the sword and axe skins below!

Since our announcement last December, we’ve been working hard to add as much new content as we can, including huge additions to progression, new Behemoths, quests, and the Mastery system. We’ve been polishing and fine-tuning the game along the way so PlayStation fans around the world have a great time when they first jump in.

Master The Hunt

One of the biggest additions to the core game you’ll see at launch is the Mastery system. Dauntless is all about teaming up with friends to take down larger-than-life Behemoths, crafting weapons and armor using their parts to take on harder and more complex Behemoths scattered across the Shattered Isles, and feeling like a total badass while doing so.

The Mastery system invites Slayers to hone and prove their skills across dozens of Behemoth and gear-related cards, earning experience, checking off achievements and unlocking new combat customization options. The system offers both new and seasoned Slayers fresh ways to engage with every weapon class and Behemoth encounter — all combined with long-term goals that net huge rewards. It’s a great way to further your experience in Dauntless while earning awesome loot.

We currently have dozens of Mastery levels for each weapon and Behemoth in the game, so there is plenty of content to work through!

The core progression experience in Dauntless has been completely overhauled for launch based on loads of feedback during our Open Beta. When you successfully defeat a Behemoth, you’ll be greeted with a revamped “End Of Hunt” screen, informing you of all the break parts you nabbed, experience you earned in various Mastery cards, gatherables collected, and much more. We want you to be able to see your Slayer progression every time you finish a hunt so when you get back to Ramsgate, the hub city of Dauntless, you can see what new Mastery cards have unlocked and what rewards you’ve earned.

Assassins In Ramsgate

We’re also launching a new Hunt Pass season starting on May 21, titled Hidden Blades. This season transforms Ramsgate for the Moon Blossom Festival and offers Slayers a huge variety of thematic gear to flaunt their inner assassin. Slayers can work through 50 levels of content across both the basic and Elite tracks, earning cosmetic rewards as well as premium currency along the way.

Welcome To The Shattered Isles

We can’t wait to welcome the PlayStation community into the world of Dauntless. As we say at Phoenix Labs: Clear Skies, Slayers!

  • lThe_Schwartzl

    • Le_Docteur56

      Hi IThe_Schwartzl,

      Our game has elements of the MMO genre, but we consider ourselves closer to a co-op action RPG. The hub city of Ramsgate is where you’ll meet other players, take on quests, craft gear, etc. Each hunt in Dauntless is its own “instance” as well.

  • Can I transfer my pc account to ps4?

      Hi DBDSaki,

      If you’ve been playing in our PC Open Beta, you’ll be given an option the first time you log in to import your data. Just make sure you link your Epic Games account at the start. Hope that helps!

  • Can’t wait but will we have to grind as much as the beta

  • TheeDaddyMav

    can i play on pc and ps4 on the same account or will it have to be two accounts?

  • Sounds abit like monster hunter world, and I like that game so hopefully I’ll get to like this too, could do with a break from mhw, so I’ll definately give this a tryout.


    Is this viable on a regular PS4? Any benefits from playing on a Pro? Just curious. I’m looking forward to the gameplay either way ;).

  • DeraesPieterjan

    Seems like a lot of fun!
