As always, Dauntless will support seamless cross-generation and full cross-platform support across seven different platforms. Not only that, but the game will also offer cross-progression options so players can carry their progress across all the platforms they play the game on. With full cross-play, it also does not matter which platform your friends play on.
Players will have access to exceptionally improved visuals on PS5 and Xbox Series consoles. This includes everything from beautiful new lighting and atmospheres, improved view distance, volumetric fog, and other effects, to reworked environment textures, trees, water, grass, and higher quality shadows.
While the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 versions of Dauntless will offer support for 4K resolution targeting 60 FPS, the Xbox Series S version will have support for 1440p resolution at 60 FPS. All 3 of the next-gen versions will also offer 90% faster load times. As such, players will be able to get into the hunt much faster.
The PlayStation 5 version of the game will also add support for dynamic adaptive triggers and integrated sound from the console's Dualsense controller. Players will also be able to enjoy 3D audio which will place them at the center of everything in the game. Finally, 36 new achievements and trophies will be added to Dauntless, including a new Platinum Trophy for PlayStation users.
