BERLIN May 26, 2022 – YAGER has announced that the new extraction FPS The Cycle: Frontier will launch its preseason event on June 8, 2022, for PC, free to play on Steam and the Epic Games Store.

Release Date Trailer:
Wishlist Now: Steam | Epic Games Store

With over 900k closed beta players already experiencing its intriguing sci-fi prospecting fantasy and highly dynamic world, this is the time to find out why The Cycle: Frontier is currently the highest wishlisted free-to-play game on Steam. Its adrenaline-inducing blend of PvE and PvP, paired with its high-stakes gameplay, promises to establish The Cycle: Frontier as the most entertaining and accessible extraction FPS on the market.

Season 1 of The Cycle: Frontier will officially launch on June 22, featuring the full suite of in-game items and rewards contained in the new edition of the Fortuna Pass, The Cycle’s exclusive season pass.

Welcome to Fortuna III, a treacherous world of alien beauty where the stakes are high and the rewards even higher. Drop down to the surface with seamless matchmaking and fill your pockets with spoils, but beware: only those who evac alive keep their prizes. Mistakes will be punished quickly and cost you dearly, but every loss is a lesson learned that will make you better.

Be on the lookout for bloodthirsty beasts, a deadly radioactive storm, and other greedy players. Prospect for riches alone, squad up with friends, and make temporary alliances with strangers – or steal their hard-fought loot for yourself. You make the decisions: which path to take, which objective to tackle, which fight to pick or avoid, and when to evac.

At your home base on Prospect Station, you can use your newfound resources to upgrade your gear and buy new equipment. Increase your reputation with a variety of factions to unlock new combat options, and customize your loadout with the perfect tools. Your next drop to the surface is just a couple of clicks away, and thanks to persistent maps and near-instant matchmaking, there’s always time for just one more game. Prospecting is a risky venture, but fortune favors the bold in the eye of the storm.
