Vivox Powers Cross-Platform Voice Communications for Phoenix’s Labs’ Dauntless

Vivox does what Nintendon't

Framingham, Massachusetts - June 06, 2019 - Vivox, the provider of the leading cross-platform voice and text communication for games, and a subsidiary of Unity Technologies, is proud to expand their list of partners with Phoenix Labs, bringing cross-platform voice chat capabilities to the hit online co-op action RPG “Dauntless.” Phoenix Labs’ flagship title, available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store, with Nintendo Switch and mobile versions to come at a later date, has quickly grown to become one of the most popular games of the year. In just a few weeks it has amassed over seven million players, with crossplay bringing players together on millions of hunts.

“Dauntless is a live product. Players everywhere on any platform should be able to experience being a Slayer with their friends. With the power of Vivox voice comms at our disposal, we’re able to make sure that players spend more time focused on hunting Behemoths, and can effectively coordinate their attacks when the action is too intense for them to type,” said Jesse Houston, Chief Executive Officer of Phoenix Labs. “Thanks to Vivox we were able to focus our time and resources on building the game we envisioned while letting Vivox take care of our comms. We decided to use Vivox because of their scalability and proven tech, and we are extremely happy with the results.

“Dauntless” is an online action-RPG that focuses on its heroes (or Slayers) hunting massive monsters known as Behemoths to keep its people safe among the Shattered Isles. With fast action at its core, “Dauntless” is the type of game that greatly benefits from Vivox voice chat as players need a reliable way to communicate with each other to be able to strategize and ensure victory. Furthermore, crossplay is at the heart of “Dauntless” player experience, and by using Vivox’s technology, players can stay connected through a unified voice chat system that works seamlessly across all platforms. With Vivox, Dauntless gives its players reliable and crystal-clear voice communications, which are used in the industry’s most-played games, connecting over 150 million players across the globe.

“We believe in Phoenix Labs’ quest to make a truly cross-platform online RPG. Players want to play with each other, regardless of their platform and at Vivox we strongly believe and support that,” said Dave Verratti, president of Vivox. “We’re proud to manage their comms and help them keep growing the game while giving a great service to their players. Dauntless has quickly scaled to being one of the biggest games of the year and we will help them keep up with the amazing pace.”

With Dauntless, Vivox further expands their impressive list of partners including Ubisoft, Riot Games, Epic Games, Bluehole and Bethesda amongst others. Vivox technology is available for developers of any size through their Developer Portal and can be implemented on all engines and platforms.

Dauntless gameplay round-up

Dauntless devs share insight into the “Path Of The Slayer” content update

It's raining blood...

Dauntless isn't on the Switch yet, but it should be making its way over at some point this year. While we wait for launch, why not get acquainted with some of the game's content? Check out the full details on the new 'Path of the Slayer' content below.

“Path Of The Slayer” introduces the Mastery system - a new way for Slayers to earn rewards for completing long-term challenges based on specific Behemoths and pieces of gear, as well as an all-new progression system that completely changes the way players advance in the game. Hunt Pass Season 4: Burndown also starts today, giving players a chance to earn new barbarian-themed rewards on both the basic and Elite tracks. “Path Of The Slayer” arrives just ahead of Dauntless’ summer launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the Epic Games store.

The Mastery system creates a new foundation for Slayers to hone their skills across dozens of Behemoth and gear-related cards, earning experience, checking off achievements and unlocking new customization options. Each Behemoth and crafted weapon - not just weapon class - has its own unique Mastery card for players to delve into. Players will also find new alternate special attack options for the Hammer, War Pike, Sword and Chain Blades, allowing Slayers to further customize their experience. In total the Mastery System offers both new and seasoned Slayers fresh ways to engage with every weapon class and Behemoth encounter - all combined with long-term goals that net huge rewards.

The core progression rework arriving in the “Path Of The Slayer” update gets Slayers into the meat of Dauntless faster, and introduces concepts like crafting, combat, quests and more through tutorial cards in a clear, transparent way. The progression rework introduces a brand new “End of Hunt” screen that provides Slayers with a wealth of information, including progress made in various Mastery cards, quest rewards, Behemoth break parts earned, and more. Quests and the Dauntless map have also been revamped to clearly define the challenge Slayers can expect on any given hunt, and Behemoth hunts are now organized by their elemental attribute. This also plays an integral role in the revamped crafting system, which introduces elemental Orbs and Arcstones that replace some of the myriad Behemoth crafting parts, creating a more fine-tuned experience.

Also arriving today is Hunt Pass Season 4: Burndown. This Hunt Pass transforms Ramsgate into an arid landscape marked with ceremonial braziers spread throughout the city, and offers Slayers a number of limited-time barbaric rewards. Slayers can experience the Mastery system, reworked progression and Hunt Pass Season 4 starting today.
