Dauntless got 6 millions players in a week

Here is a game I forgot to talk about: Dauntless.

An interesting free-to-play, co-op, action RPG, released by Phoenix Labs one week ago. And as mentioned in the title it already got 6 million players after one week. Well, apparently there was already roughly 3 million players in the Beta, but still, this is a very good score.

The game is actually available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (through the Epic Game Store) and allows cross-platform players to party together.

Honestly, the game looks like a lot of known RPG but it is free to play, so why not give it a try? The graphics style is a bit cartoonish, which is something I like.

In Dauntless you play a Slayer and will have to associate with other Slayers to hunt Behemots. The game does not really get classes but is more based on weapons. You will then have a choice between 6 different types of weapons: swords, chain blades, hammers, axes, war pikes and later in the game the Ostian Repeaters (the only fully ranged weapon).

 

UK Games charts this week

I usually do not do charts, but I think that it is interesting to know that Sonic is first in this week Games UK charts.

Yes, Sonic! For the first time in 11 years… sort off. In 2009 it was Mario and Sonic at the Olympic games who got the first place, so it was not entirely a Sonic game.

This week it is the Team Sonic Racing on the first place. It beats Days Gone which second, in front of FIFA 19.

Rage 2 dropped on the 4th place, followed by surviving Red Dead Redemption 2, The Division 2 and Mortal Kombat 11.

Maybe easier to read this way:

  1. Team Sonic Racing
  2. Days Gone
  3. FIFA 19
  4. Rage 2
  5. Red Dead Redemption II
  6. Tom Clancy’s The Division 2
  7. Mortal Kombat 11
