Monster Hunter-Like Dauntless Will Go To Epic Game Store And Support Cross-Play

Phoenix Labs has announced that its Monster Hunter-like game, called Dauntless, will move from its own current launcher to the Epic Games Store. Also, when the game releases on consoles and mobile later this year, Dauntless will support both cross-platform multiplayer and progression on all systems.

There hasn’t been an official confirmation as to when Dauntless current launcher will be retired, but it’s probable that the PC version of the game will move to the Epic Games Store prior to or around the Xbox One and PS4 release. Phoenix Labs aims to have every player’s saved data for Dauntless be tied to their Epic accounts, so when they transition to another system, their data goes with them. This system will apply to the Nintendo Switch and mobile versions of the game that launch later this year as well, allowing for total cross-play.

Phoenix Labs has also announced the release of Hunt Pass Season Two, which is now live in Dauntless and continues until March 13. This second season is Valentine’s Day-themed, and introduces new limited-time rewards, such as platinum bundles and romantic emotes. The pass has a free Basic track, and an Elite track that costs 1,000 platinum. Both tracks have 50 levels, but going Elite will net you special Ace chips and notes, exclusive transmogs, and more.

Dauntless is currently still in open beta on PC. When it launches on the Epic Game Store, your progress will carry over, regardless of which platform you choose to play on. Dauntless is scheduled for an April release on Xbox One and PS4, and will also launch on Switch and mobile before 2020.

Dauntless is simply the latest in a long long of exclusive titles that Epic has managed to secure. Although the new PC game store started out with smaller exclusives, such as Ashen and Hades, it has recently been making larger moves. For example, both Metro Exodus and The Division 2 are launching exclusively through Epic, and Ubisoft has confirmed that more of its 2019 titles are scheduled to only release through the PC game store as well.

PS5 Games We Think May Already Be in Development

As next-gen discussion continues to point us toward what we can expect from the PS5 and Next-Xbox, a new report suggests Sony’s first-party efforts are now allegedly focusing mostly on PS5.

Of course, we still have three big, announced first-party games set to come to the PS4, but, if Sony is doubling down on next-gen efforts, could these games be making the jump to next-gen?

We’ve decided to take a look at what first- and third-party games that we already know are in development for the PS4 are likely already in production for the PS5 (possibly cross-gen, or with efforts looking just toward the next generation), even if we’re not necessarily in a rush for Sony’s next-gen console.

CBS All Access announced a new limited event series, The Stand, based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name.

The TV series will be offered on CBS’ digital subscription and live streaming service and will consist of 10 episodes. Josh Boone and Ben Cavell will be executive producing and writing the script, with Boone also directing.

The Stand takes place during an apocalyptic time period with the struggle of good vs. evil lingering heavily. The fate of the world is left up to Mother Abagail – a 108-year-old woman – and a group of other survivors. Randall Flagg, also known as the Dark Man, haunts them with his unimaginable powers.

The result bids to be something memorable and thrilling. I believe it will take viewers away to a world they hope will never happen.”
