Recent articles

Another popular PS4 game got the big PS5 upgrade treatment this week, adding a new title to its next-gen library.

It’s been a busy week for Dauntless, with developers Phoenix Labs launching a brand new update that adds content and brings the game natively to next-gen consoles.

So even if you’ve played Dauntless before, it might be worth checking out the new and improved version on PS5.

The good news is that this is a free download available to PlayStation owners who own a next-gen gaming machine.

One of the most notable changes made to the game is the improved load times, with the development team confirming it can run 90% faster than in the past.

And there are also new features available that are exclusive to Dauntless on PS5 and not available on PS4 or Xbox One.

This includes dynamic adaptive trigger support and integrated sound from the DualSense wireless controller.

You can also go directly to certain yachts in the Activities menu, which makes for a smooth transition back to the game for anyone who has lost weight in the past.

A statement from Phoenix Labs adds: “With the launch of the next-gen Dauntless experience, you will see a major upgrade with stunning, high-resolution visuals and faster loading times.

“Experience exceptionally enhanced visuals on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. This includes everything from beautiful new lighting and atmospheres, improved viewing distance, volumetric fog and other effects, to reworked environmental textures, trees, water, grass and higher quality shadows.

“On PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, you can enjoy dynamic 4K resolution aimed at 60 FPS. On Xbox Series S, enjoy 1440p resolution aimed at 60 FPS.

“If you’re already playing Dauntless on a console or PC, you don’t have to start over on your next-gen console. True cross-progression means your progress will carry over across all platforms you play on. With full cross-play, it doesn’t matter which platform your friends play on – anyone can beat Behemoths together.

For those looking to upgrade their Dauntless experience, you can do so by going to the PlayStation Store and selecting it from the list of options.

Other improvements have also been made to the game, including 36 new achievements and trophies to earn, for the content added to the game since the console’s initial launch.

For those who may not have played Dauntless before, it’s an MMO RPG experience that can be downloaded for free from the PlayStation Store.

The main focus is on teaming up with others to track down the biggest brutes on the Shattered Isles, with battles akin to the Monster Hunter franchise.

Dauntless is also known for its extensive cross-play support, meaning you can play it with friends on Xbox, PlayStation, PC and Nintendo Switch platforms.

More free content is expected to be added to the game in the coming months, and further changes will be made to the various currencies and gameplay features in 2022 and beyond.
