E3 2017: Dauntless trailer is like a Western take on Monster Hunter

Posted on June 6, 2017, 1:30 am By Phoenix Labs unveiled a new E3 trailer for Dauntless, their cooperative, action-RPG game that can be played online with up to four players. The new trailer covers the combat, the improved animations running on the Ikinema middleware, and some of the upgrades and monsters that players will face off against.

The IKinema RunTime played an integral part in Phoenix Labs being able to conveniently and competently design lots of different monsters using a single animation set that allowed those monsters to navigate the environments without having to create or recreate a dozen different sets for a number of different situations. Very similar to NaturalMotion’s Morpheme engine, the IKinema suite gave Phoenix Labs the ability to bring believable looking monsters to life on a low budget.
