Dauntless has done nothing but make improvements since its official release earlier this year, and the latest wave of quality-of-life enhancements are going live today with the start of the seasonal Haunted Shadows event.
Haunted Shadows debuts with a new full set of cosmetic armor to earn, a new emote, and more of the typical goodies included in each Hunt Pass. But even better, this update will include an AFK kick timer (finally!), improvements to the in-game compass, and the ability to toggle Patrol Chests on and off (also finally!).
Those are just the highlights; the actual list of patch improvements can be found here. In the meantime, check out the fun new trailer highlighting the holiday festivities:
