Dauntless is getting a free update! This news came in today from Jesse Houston, CEO from Phoenix Labs. The name of the free update is Fortune & Glory. Houston stated that Fortune & Glory will feature Trials, a new Hunt Pass and some additional surprises. The update will go live on July 16th.
Fortune & Glory aims to make players prove they are the best Slayers in the Shattered Isles. The Trials will serve as Slayers’ first appearance of Lady Luck. In fact, she will be the one to initiate the Trials in Dauntless. Consequently, these trials will make Slayers face harsh Behemoths with unique modifiers and over-aggressive fauna. According to Houston, these trials will be a challenge even for those veteran Slayers out there. Furthermore, the trials will rotate on a weekly fashion, so players will have exciting content to come back to every week.
It’s all about the Trials!
The Trials will be time-based and will rank your performance against other Behemoth Slayers. Specifically, these leaderboards will be called Wall of Champions and will include solo and group Trial leaders. In other words, you can take these challenges alone or with a team and still participate in the leaderboards!
Beating a Trial will earn players a new in-game currency, Marks. Steel Marks will be earned if you beat a Trial starting in the Normal difficulty setting. Namely, this new currency introduced in Fortune & Glory will allow the purchase of weapon mods and alternate specials. In addition to Steel Marks, you can also get Gilded Marks which can be obtained by completing Dauntless difficulty Trials. Thus, Gilded Marks are exclusively for cosmetic rewards you can purchase at Lady Luck’s shop.
Houston explains that the Fortune & Glory update along the Hunt pass mark the beginning of the “High Skies” season in Dauntless. Additionally, this season will feature two Hunt Passes and tons of additional content.
