Remember Dauntless? The free-to-play take on Monster Hunter that built up a bit of buzz upon its release back in May 2019? Well, it's still trucking along with a dedicated fanbase and tomorrow sees the launch of its latest expansion, named Reforged. While there doesn't appear to be a native PlayStation 5 version coming any time soon, backwards compatibility ensures you still gain access to a new progression system dubbed The Slayer's Path, Hunting Grounds, and a new armour and weapons systems. A meaty update indeed.
The PlayStation Blog post explains: "The Hunting Grounds are Dauntless’ biggest and most ambitious hunt type yet, designed from the ground up to provide you with a variety of activities to take part in. The Hunting Grounds offer 18 handcrafted islands to explore, brimming with flora, fauna, treasures to discover, and — of course — fearsome Behemoths." Following that, the new progression system will actually unlock access to new locations and hunt types as well as the traditional weapon mods and passive buffs.
