If the current global situation has you hoping to escape, perhaps some monster hunting is the solution. A new content update is now available for Phoenix Lab’s Dauntless. The Rogue Elements Hunt Pass will bring a “distinct mercenary aesthetic”, together with four new Trials challenges, contract quests, and even more content for aspiring hunters.
The new Hunt Pass also develops the story further as a lead-in to another event happening in June.
New pass, more story
“Ostia, Ramsgate’s technologically advanced neighbouring society, is in a state of upheaval,” the update notes state. “Janek Zai’s former colleague Colonel Radomir has taken the Seismic Brigade – a group of soldiers he leads in the Ostian military – rogue, and the colonel has arrived in Ramsgate seeking Zai’s help in combating a Behemoth surge in the region, and a potential civil war in Ostia itself.”
If you want to find out more about your enemy, head over to Ramsgate and have a chat with Admiral Janek Zai. A new contract quest will arrive weekly for a duration of five weeks. These contracts award Hunt Pass XP and Seismic Intel. Handing in Seismic Intel to Admiral Zai will provide the Ostians with invaluable information. And of course, it’s also essential for all your rewards.
For the new Trials challenges, everything starts on May 7. Phoenix Labs shared that “adept Slayers who’ve braved Escalation hunts may recognise a few modifiers, as well as a familiar face from Shock Escalation…” in the four added challenges.
With every new Hunt Pass, there are also new aesthetic themes to look out for. This pass adds a healthy dose of mercenary fashion to Dauntless. “Seismic Slayers are renowned for their military might and combat prowess,” the studio added, “and flaunt angular designs in both their weaponry and armour sets.”
For those who want to play free, you’ll be glad to see that cosmetic armor is back on the free track at level 50. For a full list of changes, you can check out the latest patch notes.
You don’t have to wait to jump in, either. Dauntless‘ Rogue Elements Hunt Pass is available now.
