The Cycle

The development team behind Spec Ops: The Line, YAGER Development has released a trailer for its upcoming FPS title, The Cycle.

YAGER previously worked on the excellent third-person shooter, Spec Ops: Line, which released back in 2012. The game stood out among other shooters at the time thanks to its depiction of the psychological effects of war. To this day, Spec Ops: The Line has one of the more intriguing stories and features one of the most discussed endings in gaming.

Now, the company endeavours to return to the spotlight with a new IP titled The Cycle. Not much is known about the project other than that it will be an FPS set on the fictional world of Fortuna III. With the planet featuring deadly storms and hostile wildlife, the orbiting Prospect Station acts as a home base where players can acquire contracts before travelling down to the surface.

The goal of the game is simple: get rich. According to The Cycle’s official website, one of the main aims is to gather exotic materials from the planet to sell on to major galactic factions. Players are warned to be wary of not only the environment but also towards each other, as anything goes on the lawless landscape.

How these expeditions down to the surface will play out remains a mystery as they are described as “a match that lasts approximately 20 minutes.” Staying longer on the planet is supposedly “bad for your health,” which could indicate that players can choose to stay longer at their own risk.

The Cycle is already set to host a closed alpha test within the next few weeks, which can be signed up for here. YAGER plans on porting the game to console in the future but, initially, only a PC version will be available. The extent of the single-player portion of The Cycle remains shrouded in mystery for the present.
