The Cycle: Frontier Season 3 Breakthrough Giveaway
YAGER Development made several notable changes and additions to The Cycle: Frontier with Season 3 Breakthrough. First of all, there will be no more wipes moving forward, allowing players to focus on perpetual character progression. There's a new insect-like flying monster, the Howler, that prospectors may encounter during their expeditions on Fortuna. It also comes with a new activity, Howler Nests, where players can rummage through the monster's eggs in the hopes of finding nice loot.
Free loadout runs have been introduced, providing newcomers with a decent beginner's loadout. The economy has been retuned; two new weapons have been added (MKI and MKII); NVIDIA DLSS 3 is now available for owners of GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics cards.
Looking to the future of The Cycle: Frontier, in a recent interview with Wccftech, YAGER Producer Matt Lightfoot said that the studio would like to switch to Unreal Engine 5 from the current build of the game (based on Unreal Engine 4). The implementation of other PC upscaling technologies like AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution and/or Intel XeSS have been discussed, too. However, Lightfoot didn't have a clear timeframe on when those might be added to the game.
