Those thinking of giving Dauntless a try may find themselves enjoying it. Many have rightfully likened it to Capcom’s Monster Hunter series. Battling Behemoths, Dauntless‘ name for its monsters, isn’t all the game has to offer, though. It is being especially lauded for its cross-play feature, which has proven quite successful. In the first week alone, 60% of parties in Dauntless were cross-platform.

The free-to-play hit has experienced success elsewhere, too. Within its first week out, Dauntless garnered a player-base totaling more than six million. Since then, many more players are bound to have joined the hunt, especially since Phoenix Labs continues to support the title with consistent updates.
