Dauntless Fortune and Glory Update Brings Trials Mode, New Hunt Pass
Yesterday, a new update to the free-to-play RPG Dauntless launched. Titled Fortune and Glory, it was released for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Fortune and Glory is the first expansive content update for Dauntless, and it includes a new Trials mode, brought along thanks to a new character that arrives in Ramsgate, Lady Luck.
Of the update, Phoenix Labs said in a release:
Trials will pit adventurous Slayers against dangerous, modified Behemoths and all-new environmental challenges, like terrain-transforming pests. With the clock ticking through each hunt, it will be up to Trials challengers to prove that they can execute under pressure. Trials are split into two difficulty levels: "Normal" and "Dauntless."
Completing Trials' normal difficulty will grant players Slayers with Steel Marks. Players can then use these to purchase unique rewards such as weapon mods and alternate special attacks.
More skilled competitors that have finished the Dauntless difficulty will receive Slayers with Gilded Marks. Those can be used to buy exclusive cosmetic rewards.
Rewards for both the Normal and Dauntless difficulties are exclusive to the new Trials mode and can only be found at Lady Luck's shop.
For those who want to see how they rank compared to the other 12 million Dauntless players, there is now a Wall of Champions conveniently located right outside Lady Luck's shop in Ramsgate. There, players can see the top performers whether they play solo or in a group.
If a name isn't on the leaderboards this week, there's no need to worry: the Trials rotate every week, so players have numerous chances to get on the board.
Fortune and Glory contains 50 levels of content, and it is just the beginning of this season of Dauntless, which is named High Skies. The season will also include two consecutive Hunt Passes that include new content. The first pass revolves around a pirate theme.
