New FPS ‘The Cycle’ Revealed By ‘Spec Ops: The Line’ Devs (VIDEO)
If you’ve been looking for a new first-person shooter to dive into, Yager Development has your back. The developers of Spec Ops: The Line have just revealed their new title, The Cycle, which is set to begin Alpha testing in the very near future.
Thankfully, they also provided a plethora of details with the announcement of the game. “The Cycle is a match-based FPS where you compete to fulfill contracts (quests) during a match that lasts approximately 20 mins,” the website reads. “Staying on the planet for longer than that is bad for your health.” Check out the reveal trailer below:
Gamers were quick to call it yet another Battle Royale title, but Yager put a stop to that in the comments section of the video, saying that they are referring to it as a “Competitive Quester.” From what we can tell, it’s not exactly about killing others as much as it is about fulfilling contracts by completing various tasks and gathering loot. Here’s more from the game’s website:
“Welcome to Fortuna III. Far as we can tell, this rock was terraformed by aliens a long time ago. The Federation tried colonizing it, but the Cycle put an end to that. We’re talking world-spanning storms that kill anything dumb enough to set foot planetside and these storms are happening more often than not.
Your home is a spinning collection of tin cans known as Prospect Station. The main thing going for it is that it’s not the surface. It ain’t pretty, but no one said life on the frontier was going to be easy. You put up with this junk for one reason: to get rich. The planet’s full of exotic materials that the major galactic factions pay serious credits for. When the Cycle breaks, that’s your window to get down there and get to work. Just watch out for the competition – the long arm of the law doesn’t reach out this far.
Cash in your contracts and those same factions will set you up with some shiny gear. They’ve got big guns, little guns, medium guns, and a collection of gadgetry that’d make your jaw drop. Getting the job done is whole lot easier when you’ve got a jetpack and a laser cannon at your side.”
I don’t about you, but that doesn’t sound like a Battle Royale game to me. Besides, there will only be 20 people in each match. Needless to say, The Cycle is shaping up to be quite the interesting title. If you are interested in signing up for the upcoming Alpha testing, you can do so right here.
The Cycle doesn’t have a release date as of now, but it will launch for PC at some point in the future. Yager also intends on bringing the title to consoles at a later date as well.
