PvPvE Shooter The Cycle: Frontier Launches Free-To-Play Today On Steam, Epic Games Store

Yager's first-person PvPvE shooter, The Cycle: Frontier, launches today on Steam and the Epic Games Store, bringing the mix of PvP and PvE action to a persistent sci-fi world.

The free-to-play multiplayer shooter is being compared to Escape from Tarkov in that players will be bringing their gear with them into the world and aiming to collect items to complete quests. Players will need to extract safely with what they are carrying, all while combating other players and the environment. 

Launching today is what Yager is calling The Cycle's "pre-season," as the first real season doesn't kick off until June 22nd. Yager is stating that there won't be any wipes between the seasons, meaning progress will carry forward.  Yager also announced an all-new edition of the Fortuna Pass, effectively the extraction shooter's version of the now-ubiquitous Battle Pass.

Via this morning's press release: 

"The Cycle: Frontier’s Pre-Season launch introduces updates and improvements made possible by feedback from the game’s extensive community of over 900k players who joined during alpha and beta events, helping to make The Cycle: Frontier the most wishlisted free-to-play title on Steam."
