Dauntless is a popular free-to-play action RPG that puts its own spin on the beast-slaying formula from Monster Hunter. It's been available on PlayStation 4 for a while now, but with PS5 having been out for over a year now, some fans have been hoping for the game to make the jump. Fortunately, developer Phoenix Labs has now confirmed a native PS5 port, and it's launching very soon indeed.

From 2nd December 2021, the game will be available as a PS5 title. The best part is that, once you've linked your accounts up, you'll be able to carry over your progress from last-gen to current-gen, picking up where you left off. Of course, there are lots of other benefits too. The PS5 version enhances the visual fidelity, with improved textures and lighting implemented, as well as dynamic 4K resolution and 60 frames-per-second performance.

Furthermore, the DualSense controller's features are put to use; the adaptive triggers and built-in speaker will get a workout. This version also incorporates 3D audio, vastly reduces load times, and even throws in many new Trophies to collect. That includes a Platinum, which the PS4 version doesn't have.
