Dauntless Heads Into Open Beta May 24

It's nearly time for everyone to take to the Shattered Isles and hunt some Behemoths! After four years of development and a closed beta that drew over 100,000 players, Phoenix Labs has announced that its free-to-play monster-hunting extravaganza Dauntless will be going into worldwide open beta on May 24.

Though originally scheduled for open beta in fall of 2017, Dauntless has certainly needed the additional time to bake. Phoenix Labs has taken a lot of player feedback into account, from reworking weapons to improving exploration to removing loot boxes. Open beta will also mark the end of the Founder's Program, so if you want a Founder's Pack, you'll need to pick one up before closed beta ends.

If you haven't had a chance to try Dauntless yet in its closed beta form, do you think you'll check it out once it goes into open beta?

LUL...

Last year they announced it would be "Early 2018"

Well then... guess May is now Early.

(and quite frankly... the game still doesn't have that much improvement since last year)

Can't wait to try this one. Looks like it's gonna be really fun. Hopefully it's optimized well and doesn't stray down the dark path of freemium

I understand this could be from an early interview they gave you or something, but where exactly is the source? They haven't announced anything yet on their website, facebook, twitter or reddit. They still have only the post saying they will be announcing stuff today.
