YAGER Development shot to fame with Spec Ops: The Line, while also building a solid following with space sim Dreadnought. However, now it’s announced a new first-person shooter called The Cycle that will be going into alpha testing soon. Check out the announcement trailer below.
The Cycle sees players venturing out into the world of Fortuna III to complete different contracts or quests during matches. A faction called The Federation apparently attempted colonization of the planet, but were stopped by enormous storms referred to as the Cycle. Each match will last for 20 minutes but it’s implied that you can stay on the planet longer than that. It’s “bad for your health”, obviously, but it’s still possible. There will be 20 players in each match, along with lots of alien monsters and some native wildlife.
The alpha will be made available initially on PC in the next few weeks with plans to release it for consoles later. YAGER has stated that the game will be available through Steam so an additional launcher won’t be necessary. Those interested in alpha testing can fill out the form by heading here.
