Time is circular.
The Cycle

Yager's "competitive quest shooter" is currently free to download in an early access state for the PC via the Epic Games Store. This release is the start of a series of updates that will see the game continue to grow. Some of the continued support includes additional languages and "regular seasons of content drops created with community feedback." Today sees the release of the "Crime & Punishment" update.

Details on that update are found below. The Cycle is a match-based FPS that includes PvPvE style gameplay. You can complete jobs, earn weapons, earn powers, and try to out-score other players. You're free to try playing solo or attempt to team up with friends and strangers.

A new trailer for the game wants to make sure you know that this game isn't a battle royale.

  • A new Duos mode allowing players to pair up together to take on other Prospectors. Duos joins the two other game modes: Solo, where players can queue alone, and Squads, where four players team up to take on the game’s challenges.
  • A new bounty hunter system designed to better balance PvEvP: players who frequently kill other prospectors will get marked as “ruthless” on the mini-map, revealing their location to everyone.
  • A new heat map showing areas with a high density of players — decide if you want to hunt down serious PvP action, or focus more on PvE in less populated areas.
  • The ability to level up your armor kits with better stats by collecting experience points.
  • Two new archetypes, the Gambler and Exo Biologist, along with a new enemy type: the Droids.
  • New sound effects for most weapons.
  • Support for in-game voice chat.
The Cycle is a match-based first-person shooter with a focus on PvEvP action, completing jobs, gearing up with new weapons and powers, out-scoring other players, and making it off the exotic, alien frontier of Fortuna III alive. Compete against and – if you choose – team up with other prospectors to harvest resources, defeat hostile lifeforms, and make your fortune before the world, your rivals, or your so-called allies kill you. It’s up to you how to stake your claim: go it alone, form squads with friends, or make uneasy alliances with strangers. The Cycle delivers a competitive multiplayer experience where everyone can survive, but how you choose to manage your precious time will make all the difference.
