Dauntless is doing pretty well player wise. In just a little over a month since the game entered open beta in late May, the game has accumulated over 2 million players. The news of this milestone was announced today in a press release from Phoenix Labs. Although it doesn't say if those are all active players or just registered.

Regardless, the press release also contained some other good news for those players who are indeed active. There's new content on the way. The Coming Storm is a major content expansion set to release on August 9. It begins when an Ostian Dreadnaugt crashes into Ramsgate, changing it both physically and with the addition of new NPCs, stories, and quests.

The expansion willl also add a thorny new Behemoth, Koshai, as well as new gear for players to craft -- including grenades. Players will even be able to get their hands on the first "truly ranged weapon" the Ostian Repeaters -- just some of the technology the Ostian faction brought along with them when they crashed.

While it's not up on the Dauntless site yet, players will likely be able to find even more infomation on the new content there soon.

"August 9"? really? I don't think it's a coincidence.
But once again just like all other early access games, they focus on Realeasing new content instead of fixing the real problems, Still waiting for them to fix the performance so I can really play. If they don't fix it, well I hope monster hunter is doing well on that topic

So did they ever address the cheating problem? I mean, not to give anyone any ideas but cheating in this game is so easy that i doubt they even have any sort of anti cheat.
