Dauntless will be introducing a new Halloween event, with patch 0.2.7 also going live, bringing a heap of new features to the game. There are brand new customization options, an update on how the progress of new art and skins for weapons and armor is going, a new tutorial island, and of course, the Dark Harvest.
The Halloween event is starting on October 31, and it will last until November 7th. A creepy aura will envelop Ramsgate and the islands that surround it, and dwellers will decorate their homes with spooky decorations while they celebrate Halloween. Of course, Halloween in MMORPGs is always accompanied by some form of trouble, and in Dauntless you will be facing a horde of deadly creatures that will be rushing towards Ramsgate. Players will be able to pick up various special collectibles during the Dark Harvest which will help them deal with these monsters.
When it comes down to character customization, more is always better. Patch 0.2.7 is bringing new hairstyles, and the option to add makeup to your character. Beards and face paint are coming sometime later, and if you want to change your appearance right now, you need to talk to Gregario Flynt, the Stylist, who can be found in Ramsgate.
As far as new art and skins for weapons and armor are concerned, the developers are working hard to implement the final art for all the weapons and armor that are currently in the game, but they still aren’t done as there are some that that are still being worked on.
This patch also introduces a tutorial island that should help players that are new to Dauntless. This should help new players understand the game mechanics more, and having a tutorial is never a bad thing.
