Labs Launches First Open Beta Expansion for the Co-op Action RPG
Introducing a Deadly New Behemoth, World-Changing Events, Quests and
Much More

Phoenix Labs has launched The
Coming Storm
, the first content update for the studio's co-op
action-RPG, Dauntless. Available now to download and play
for free, The Coming Storm introduces a range of new content to
the game, vastly expanding the world of Dauntless for the more
than 2 million Slayers that have battled across the Shattered Isles
together. The Coming Storm kicks off with the fierce Behemoth,
Koshai, wreaking havoc across the Shattered Isles. A brand new faction,
the Ostians, have arrived in Ramsgate complete with a new story and
quests to explore as well as new items and weapons to help combat the
new threat. Starting today and rolling out over the coming weeks,
Slayers can expect new content on a weekly basis, culminating in a new
ranged weapons, the Ostian Repeaters.

"The Coming Storm delivers on our vision for the living,
breathing and constantly evolving experience of Dauntless," said
Jesse Houston, CEO and co-founder of Phoenix Labs. "It's our
ultimate goal to give the millions of Slayers playing Dauntless
massive and impactful world-changing events, quests and challenges to
sink their battle-hardened weapons into on a regular basis, with new and
exciting updates always on the horizon."

The Coming Storm begins when an Ostian Dreadnought is assaulted
forcing them to take refuge in Ramsgate. An ominous aetherstorm looms on
the horizon and a challenging new Behemoth, Koshai, emerges from
the shadows to herald the storm's arrival. Bearing the title The
Sovereign of Thorns, Koshai is a vicious beast that can tear apart the
strongest armor with its powerful thorns and vines and is sure to be one
of the most fearsome opponents Slayers have faced yet.

Koshai brings a distinct and deadly change to the Shattered Isles,
causing the other Behemoths to evolve and change beyond their usual
behavior and form. Slayers can expect a new spin on classic encounters,
challenging even their most skilled tactics. To help combat Koshai,
Slayers now have access to an assortment of craftable grenades that
offer ranged attacks with dramatic effects.

Over the coming weeks, additional content will be added to Dauntless,
including new exotic gear, culminating in Slayers gaining access to the
first fully ranged weapon, the Ostian Repeaters. This new modular
weapon will allow Slayers to customize and tailor their loadout, further
complimenting their playstyle. More details on the Ostian Repeaters will
be debuted on
