I want to a do a write-up about this game somewhere, you know, the cute looking F2P Monster Hunter’s inspired game? Put about 5 hours into it yesterday just thinking I would see what it was about, and next thing I knew it was scratching an itch I didn’t know I needed scratched. It removes some of my favorite parts of MHW such as the tracking and the complex biomes BUT it also removes a lot of clutter. You get into games quick (at least on PC), the item system is straight forward, and you can modify looks to your choosing (with some microtransaction caveats).
I know Dauntless has now been around for a little while but it took me by surprise how good it feels NOW. A game that if the player base stays on board, could continue to add new monsters, new mechanics, and new modes.
Anyone else playing it? Thoughts?
