Today YAGER announced that beginning Friday, April 12, the company will begin running weekly alpha playtests of its upcoming competitive quest shooter, The Cycle. These sessions, set to run every week until the launch of the game’s closed beta, will be available to anyone that signs up. The team at YAGER is committed to an open, community-driven development environment, and is looking to give players a recurring chance to try the game and offer feedback on new features, content and ongoing developments, as well as input on what they would like to see from the game in the future. Players that join these sessions will see their progress carried over weekly during alpha testing, until the game launches into closed beta later this spring.
The Cycle is a match-based first-person shooter with an emphasis on PvPvE action, completing jobs, gearing up with new weapons and powers, out-scoring other players, and making it off the planet alive. On the exotic alien frontier of Fortuna III, you’ll compete against and – if you choose – team up with other prospectors to harvest resources, defeat hostile lifeforms, and make your fortune before the world, your rivals or even your so-called allies kill you. It’s up to you how to stake your claim: go it alone, form squads with friends, or make uneasy temporary alliances with strangers. The Cycle delivers a competitive multiplayer experience where everyone can survive, but how you choose to manage your time on Fortuna III can have a big impact.
