Last week, Phoenix Labs posted a short blog showing off some of the stuff that would arrive in Dauntless with The Coming Storm. As some of you may have noticed, the blog post offered some cool details — mostly on development stuff — but didn’t really lay out everything that would be coming. Now we know why.
As it turns out, The Coming Storm will be rolled out in parts, rather than being one huge content drop. The first bits of the expansion are slated to arrive on August 8, according to The Dauntless Roadmap on Trello. This update will include the new Behemoth discussed last week, a new island, new storyline, an update to Ramsgate, quests, Koshai Armour and Weapons, and … grenades. The following update, coming later in August, will include new gear, a new reputation track, and more. And, of course, there’s more content outlined for periods beyond that.
For those of you interested in development, go give the Roadmap a look. It’s a pretty nifty “behind the scenes.”
