Players will discover a ton of new and refined features in The Cycle: Frontier’s next closed beta, including:

  • New Faction Campaigns: Three new faction campaigns will guide you through your first steps on the surface, all while unlocking valuable new gear and insight into the lore of The Cycle: Frontier.
  • New In-Match Activities: Fortuna III is getting even more dangerous. Call down the new and improved Laser Drill for a big payday, but be ready to fight anyone coming to steal what’s yours.
  • New Monster Variations: Familiar fauna return with a few (deadly) surprises. New creature variations provide even greater challenges and rewards for those bold enough to take them on.
  • New Map Design: Both Bright Sands and Crescent Falls have been revamped for better traversal, plus improved visuals to strike the perfect balance between Fortuna III’s danger and beauty.

The original closed beta for The Cycle: Frontier was a huge success and one of the highest trending games on Twitch at its peak, smashing viewership records for the studio’s previous title, The Cycle. Fans diving back in for the second closed beta of The Cycle: Frontier will find a range of enhancements driven by community feedback, including improved combat balance, enemy AI, loot, and tutorials, as well as visual and audio optimizations, bug fixes and more.

The Cycle: Frontier is a free-to-play, high-stakes, PvPvE FPS. Complete missions on a deserted planet while defending yourself from hostile creatures and armed opponents. But beware: resources and mission objectives can only be kept if you leave the planet alive. Increase your reputation with a variety of factions to unlock advanced new tools, upgrades and weapons.

You’re never completely alone on the alien world of Fortuna III — dangerous beasts and other greedy players armed to the teeth are always on the prowl. Whether playing solo, in a squad with friends, or making temporary alliances with strangers, The Cycle: Frontier offers the ultimate competitive multiplayer and survival combat experience for everyone.
