Our top pick of the week starting May 20?
Monster Hunter World certainly took the world by storm but it still had one or two limitations due to it still being a Monster Hunter title. That’s where Dauntless comes in.
After a pretty successful Kickstarter this multiplayer open world monster hunting RPG looks like it will be heaps of fun and plenty of character in it’s art design.
