Dauntless is the new hit game right now, and to prove that point the monster hunter-esc title has managed to pull in a staggering 6 million players within its first week.

Thanks for making this first week one for the record books. (And if any veteran Slayers want to weigh in with #Riftstalker tips? Now's the time.) pic.twitter.com/wW0KcDQtgT
I have been covering the player count progression of Dauntless since the first day it released. The game initially launched into its beta phase and immediately gained 500,000 players in just one day. That number quickly increased and then was totalled across all platforms, reaching 5 million players.
Now, Phoenix Labs have released an end of week statistical report through an image on their Twitter. The image is basically all of the accolades the game achieved within its first week. Starting off we have the now 6 million slayers present, 20,000,000 hunts have been conducted, 13,000,000 behemoths have been slain, 2,000,000 slayers have been forced to retreat, 60% of parties are cross-play and 15,000,000 hours have already been played. If you are interested in joining the hunt, check out the official Dauntless listing on the Epic Games Store here.
