It’s a massive achievement. But it also has other impacts. Scrolling the other tweets from the account see the game facing some server issues. The developers are ironing out the issues by each day and ramping up servers to deal with the huge player count right now. Getting into the game right now requires you waiting in a queue- a measure to keep the servers running within capacity. But that also means there are tons of players out there stuck in the main menu.
Dauntless will continue to receive content updates, with a release for Nintendo Switch and mobile devices in the works. The game is out now on the PS4 (but not on PS Store Asia), PC (Epic Games Store) and Xbox One.
