The Cycle: Frontier is a free to play competitive online first person shooter/quester game (FPS) with PvPvE combat by Germany-based studio YAGER for PC (Windows). The game is avalable via the Epic Games Store and Steam. “Be on the frontier of human civilization and explore the rich planet of Fortuna III, land of beauty matched only by its imminent dangers. Dive into a new adventure and discover everything this world has to offer. Test your skills and resolve, adapt or overcome. Join others, fight or avoid them. Do whatever is necessary to claim your victory, but do it before the planet claims you.”
▶ GREATER RISKS YIELD GREATER REWARDS: The life of a Prospector is full of danger, but any extra peril is sure to be worth it. You can go it alone or team up but be wary, the more valuable your haul the bigger the risk. Tread recklessly and risk attracting the attention of a pack of sneaky Striders or a monstrous Crusher. Cause too much noise fending off the wildlife and you may give away your position to another trigger-happy player. Remember, losers come home empty-handed, so watch your back.
▶ DROP DOWN AT A MOMENTS NOTICE: Map instances stay open for several hours, so Prospectors can drop to the planets surface at any time as long as the storm is not raging. This means no waiting in a queue for other players – you just drop onto the surface and off you go. And while you’re down there, be prepared for a constant ebb and flow of threats and opportunities, as others get taken out or evacuate, and are replaced by new arrivals!
▶ A WORLD OF TREACHEROUS BEAUTY: Fortuna III is a lush, mysterious planet on the edge of the galaxy. Once prized for its natural resources, it was ravaged by the Cycle, a radioactive storm that quickly wiped-out civilization, leaving behind ghost settlements and forcing survivors to retreat to the orbiting station. The storm is still a threat and yet the surface is full of spoils and treasures. Will you hunker down to survive the stormy night or use this risky opportunity to look for rare materials?
▶ CALM ABOVE THE STORM: Returning to the relative safety of Prospect Station will allow you to secure your spoils and turn in your completed contracts. Use your newfound resources to improve your personal quarters with permanent upgrades and purchase new equipment. Tune up your favorite weapons with a neat array of mods and gear up with the perfect tools for your next drop. This may not be a corner of paradise but it’s home. Your home.
