The Cycle Is An Upcoming F2P PvPvE Match-Based And Objective-Oriented Shooter From YAGER
The Cycle is described as a "match-based first-person shooter with an emphasis on PvPvE action." Players will gear up, complete MMO-quest-like jobs, and form (and break) alliances on the fly, with the ultimate goal of scoring the most points and making it off an alien planet alive.
The game's name comes from the Cycle, "world-spanning storms that kill anything dumb enough to set foot planetside." Oh, and there are also monsters that scale with each Cycle and deadly radiation. Have fun!
From the sounds of it, and to look at the trailer, it offers a battle royale-ish experience, but with more varied gameplay than simply "gear up and kill everyone and avoid the ring of death." You'll certainly be doing some of that -- though gear is crafted between matches using materials gathered from the planet rather than acquired directly by looting -- but YAGER clearly hopes that the parts of what make The Cycle different will help it stand out.
