Free To Play Title Dauntless Gets Three New Founder Packs

The free to play title, Dauntless, that has been inspired by games such as Monster Hunter now has founder’s packs. Announced today via the Dauntless website, there are three different tiers that include several goodies, perks, customization options and even access to the game before anyone else gets a chance to play. 

Players looking to get access to the game sooner or just looking for in-game perks just might be interested in what’s being offered here. Keep in mind that these options won’t come cheap and are priced from $40 and up to $100. We’ve listed the tiers below, for you to check out and decide if they’re for you.

If you’re down for picking up a tier, head over to the Dauntless website here and have your credit/debit card ready! That said, while I’m definitely looking forward to Dauntless because I adore the Monster Hunter games, I’m not too sure about speaking money on something that hasn’t been proven just yet.

Slayer Tier ($39.99):

  • Closed Beta Access: Can’t wait to start slaying? Guarantee your spot in Dauntless history with Closed Beta Access. The Closed Beta will begin this summer and run for many weeks until we’re ready for Open Beta. Slayer inventories and stats will be wiped before Open Beta.
  • Champion Status: Receive more materials from every behemoth you slay. Champion status is a great way to make your hunts go further.
  • Slayer Pack: Hit the ground running with a care package designed to help you on your first few hunts. Grab potions and other consumables to help you jump-start your legend.
  • In-Game Title & Forum Icon: Let everyone know that you were there day one with this exclusive title. Both in-game and on the forums you’ll stand out as a founding slayer.
  • Founder’s Flare: Flares are the best way to communicate with other slayers on the hunt. The exclusive Founder’s Flare will set you apart as a leader in any group.

Hero Tier ($69.99): Includes all the Slayer Tier perks and the following;

  • Chroma Cores: Expand your palette of dyes and personalize your gear. Every Chroma Core contains a random assortment of items that you can use to make your legend unique.
  • Transmog Stones: Love the stats, but want to change the look? Transmog it and give your equipment a new appearance. Start with a few stones to keep handy for when you find something special.

Founder Tier ($99.99): includes all the Slayer and Hero perks and the following;

  • Founder’s Alpha: Want to be among the first to walk the Shattered Isles? Play a full week before Closed Beta starts in this exclusive event. Join Phoenix Labs as we open the doors to Ramsgate, then keep playing in the Closed Beta when everyone else arrives.
  • Patron Status: Similar to Champion status, Patron status increase the quantity of materials dropped by slain behemoths. What’s better is that everyone in your hunting party will also receive a similar bonus regardless of their status. Additionally, this bonus stacks with other Patrons. It’s the perfect perk for slayers who plan to roll with a group of friends.
  • Additionally, Patron Status imbues slayers with the Style Hunter perk. This perk gives vanity and customization items (which are usually found in Chroma Cores) a chance to drop from slain behemoths.
  • Founder’s Banner Make an impression with this exclusive emote. You’ll be able to customize your banner with new elements as your legend evolves and always be able to show it off in style.
  • Guild Charter: Start your own guild and establish your legacy.
  • Game Credits: Become a part of Dauntless history. Add your name to the Dauntless credits, where you’ll live as one of the founding members of the game.
