The Cycle is a Competitive Quest Shooter (PvEvP) which offers a combination that has never been explored before: a heart-racing PvE struggle against a treacherous planet and its unfriendly alien inhabitants amidst a cutthroat PvP struggle for resource supremacy. You compete against other Prospectors, or perhaps collaborate with them, to claim as much resources as possible and escape Fortuna III before the planet crushes the life out of you. Victory goes to the Prospector that completes the most contracts during the match and manages to evacuate the planet in time. In theory, you can play the game without any PvP at all. Apart from warding off player hunters who might be roaming the planet, the best reason to engage in PvP is to obtain certain objectives for yourself or stop a Prospector who finished more contracts than you!

This is your way to the FAQ!

There are 3 factions in The Cycle. Korolev, OSIRIS and ICA. Each faction gives you access to various weapons and gadgets. This access depends on the level you have reached on the the factions. You can see the needed faction level in the crafting menu

Drop onto the surface of Fortuna III, a beautiful planet with all kinds of hidden gems – but beware! The local fauna does not appreciate intruders looking to make a quick buck off of the treasures that their habitat holds. Make use of your equipment and join temporary alliances or squads to make it out alive. Maybe you'll even be the first one on the evacuation ship to earn yourself a very, very nice living. And let's not think about what happens if you don't evacuate the planet in time, shall we?

Map 01

The game is about creating your preferred loadout bit by bit.

In contrast to Battle Royale games, The Cycle does not collect weapons during the round, but crafts them in the main menu and then puts them together in its loadout to buy them during the round with the collected credits.

Your equipment consists of primary weapons, secondary weapons, gadgets, abilities and suits, the so-called kits.

The main goal of the game is to ganin victory points. You get them for completening different contracts. Each time you complete one, it will restart a bit harder than the previous version.

So you have to create a tactic what to do because one match is limited by 20 minutes.
