    Pretty stocked for it. Monster Hunter World obviously is at top of this niche genre but frankly speaking i would love for some other good games come out of it and dauntless seems to be pretty good shot at proper MH like game.

    They have open beta that starts today and you can download it right now. I am currently downloading it.
    Not a fan of art design but gameplay seems very MH like.

    Whoa seems like a lot of people want to try it. around 10k in line for sever.

    edit:

    Looks like game got hug of death and servers combust from load. Got into main menu and it kicked me out after trying to get into actual game after 5 minutes. Now 30k people in queue.

    Yeah i also didn't know that. Though i don't know what is currently their exact model. Maybe they will go Path of Exile style which is great model and very nice.

    edit:

    damn still can't log in properly, servers are getting hammered af.

    So, 10 default storage slots, need 8 to build a single piece of useful equipment, 90 potential different drops from each monster and trading that forces you to see other people's cosmetics?

    Can't wrap my head around what you said. I'd like to see it first though. Though it smells like bullshit. Allthough Path of Exile works kind of similar as it gives you only 3 stash tabs and you can buy more. If game was good and this was mostly the same stuff like PoE stash tabs i wouldn't mind spending money to increase size of slots to reasonable level supporting dev making good game.

    tried to login just now. 60k+ people in queue. They definitely hit people interest, that is for sure.

    I'm guessing you still can't login yet? I was just gonna ask how the game is so far.

    Its my gtx960 dragging me down. I'm holding off on upgrading it until something I actually wanna play releases, but from the looks of things that'll be Cyberpunk.

    If gtx 960 isn't enough for that graphic style they have a lot of issues.

    Eh, that's a clumsy beta. Servers are not enough and game has MMO ish bugs combined with optimization problems...
    Edit: Was able to play a bit yesterday. Game's ok for a F2P Monster Hunter game but weapon choices are really poor now (probably because of beta)

    If MHW really come to PCs this fall, this game will have a hard time like this.

    How does it run? Can you get a constant 60fps? What are your specs?

    Its bad for graphics like that. Got GTX 980 ti with i7 7700 K. On epic settings I can't get constant 60fps with that beast, It "hiccups" on occasion...
    But main problem is about servers.

    Yeah, it's pretty bad, and the performance is utter garbage.

    For reference, I could run MHW on max settings at 144Hz constant (after rolling back my GPU drivers and also a couple of patches that fixed some stuttering/FX bugs). Dauntless was a juddering slideshow no matter what I tried, even in a flat plain with just my character in sight.
