I came across a new video game last week called The Cycle by YAGER Development. This is currently free on the Epic Games store and it’s a ton of fun! My son Kyle and I have been playing for a week now and unlike Battle Royal games where the last man or team standing wins, your placing in the game is based on completing contracts which are PvE based.
This is something completely new and while there is an element of PvP it’s not the primary focus of the game. Even if you do get into a battle with another player or team and die you are not out as you respawn back at your starting point. If you die again before reclaiming your battery where you died the first time it’s game over. Even then you will still get some cash based on how well you placed against the other players or teams during the match. Watch the video below to get a better idea of what I am talking about.
The Cycle – Gameplay Trailer
There is a ton of depth to this game and with it being free to play kind of a no brainer not to at least give it a try. Earn cash from how well you did during the match and the use it to buy/unlock weapons that you can use on the surface. Work for three different factions to earn rep and unlock weapons, abilities and gadgets.
Also right now you can get a free Rogue Start Pack as well which is pretty cool. This type of game is unique, at least I have never played anything like it. I think it’s going to be a big success!
This is not intended to be an in depth review of the game. There are far better sites and people who do that for a living. I just wanted to share / promote a new game that I am having a blast playing. If you do give it a try look me up in game, I am Vanguard1965!
