Dauntless Promises Gameplay Enhancements
Phoenix Labs is gearing up to make exploring islands more fun and exciting for players after receiving streams of feedback from Closed Beta players. Their blog post outlines earlier concepts of the game, and the development team's four main design points:
- destructible environments
- new points of interest
- new forms of traverse
- more islands
These destructible environments were shown to be both beneficial and trouble for players, as enemies can have the ability to take out obstacles in their path while trying to reach them.
A myriad of different points that players will be able to explore and find items to craft were mentioned. One example of these points is destroyed villages, where players can expect to find potions, notes, and clues as to what caused the destruction.
