Berlin-based developer YAGER has launched Season 2 of their competitive quest shooter The Cycle, adding a brand new map featuring 4 different biomes. This new map brings a big gameplay upgrade to the game, and comes just two weeks after other major developments were implemented.
New “Crescent Falls” Map
The new season introduces a new map called “Crescent Falls“, which enhances Fortuna III with four stunning biomes. Players exploring the map will play across diverse biomes such as a forest, farmlands, rocky plains, a desert and even a town area with bars and a gigantic spaceship. The new map is much larger, more open and supports a variety of gameplay styles, thereby enhancing the game’s overall gameplay experience and appeal.
New Season Pass
Season 2 arrives with a new Season Pass, available in two grades. The free pass grants more than 50 rewards for Prospectors (including emotes, banners, character customisation elements and skins and coatings for weapons and armours), while the golden version of the pass gives access to more than 180 goodies.
The Season Pass also includes two brand new characters. A heavily armored Korolev Paladin and the Troublemaker, a talented gunslinger, increasing the total number of playable characters to 11.
Season 2 of The Cycle will run for three months, with new daily, weekly and seasonal challenges to help players level up the pass and unlock new rewards.
Only two weeks ago YAGER introduced the first iteration of the Space Station (a 3D lobby to interact and meet other players) and Ranked Mode – a competitive way of experiencing The Cycle, where all players start with the same Prospector rank and try to increase this rank by finishing their matches in the best possible spot to become “Prestige Prospectors” and grab exclusive banners.
All random or luck-based gameplay elements are removed to focus on pure skill-based competition. The first ranked season lasts until the end of February with many more improvements coming soon, helping to satisfy the desire of the more competitive PvP players.
