Dauntless patch 1.34 fixes bugs with new game improvements

There’s a new update available for monster-hunting multiplayer title Dauntless, ready for Slayers to download and install.

– ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW –

Dauntless patch 1.34 makes a number of minor improvements to the popular cross-play RPG while ironing out some bug with a fresh wave of fixes.

This follows last week’s 1.33 update which kicked off the latest Hunt Pass, loaded with 50 tiers of free and elite rewards. It also saw a complete redesign of Ramsgate, the Dauntless hub world/social space.

We recently decided to return to Dauntless for our 2020 review, scoring it an impressive 8/10 for its slightly more accessible approach to the action RPG side genre. You can catch the latest patch notes below.
