Where can I play The Cycle: Frontier?
You'll be able to play the game on the Epic Games Store or Steam
It is free to play and will be released in 2022.
How long do the drops to the planet last?
There is no match or anything like that. We have a persistent world. Server instances are open for 6 hours and you have no waiting times to drop into the action. 30 minutes before a server closes you will get a notification that you should get back to safety! You can always go back home, to Prospect Station, at any time. You just need to make it to one of the EVAC locations.
What is The Cycle: Frontier?
The Cycle: Frontier is a free-to-play high-stakes PvPvE first-person shooter driven by suspense and danger. Prospect for resources and other riches on an abandoned alien world ravaged by a deadly storm, inhabited by monsters, and frequently raided by other ambitious Prospectors.
You pick the contracts that you want to fulfill on your next drop and the gear that you want to use. Keep in mind though, if you die, you will lose the items that you have taken with you.

I have issues with sound or graphics or the game won’t start properly, what can I do?
First things first, please make sure that you are in the range of specs listed above. Next step will be to check if your drivers are up to date. Most commonly the graphics card drivers are in need of an update. Usually you can either find the GeForce Experience or the AMD Radeon Settings icon in the system tray at the bottom right of your taskbar. If you open one of the two, it will show you if you can update your driver. In case these icons are not shown you can do the following:
Tap on Start Type “dxdiag” and press the Enter key If you go to “Display” it will show you the graphics card that is used and the manufacturer. Then visit one of the following pages to download the new driver and install it: Nvidia GeForce: https://www.nvidia.de/Download/index.aspx AMD Radeon: https://www.amd.com/en/support Intel: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/80939/Graphics-Drivers If you open one of the “Sound” tabs you will be able to see if there are issue with your sound drivers.
For the final step, please make sure that your game files are not damaged. This can be done in the Epic Games Store when you click the "..." next to the game. If you are playing on Steam, please right-click on the game in your library and then click on properties -> local files -> verify

What happens if a player dies on the surface?
A Prospector does not really die, they get foamed to protect their body and to transport them back to Prospect Station.
All loot that they carried at that point in time, that was not in their safe pockets, can be picked up by other players.
If a player gets foamed, another player is able to drop into the same instance of the world. This means that you will have a constant ebb and flow of leaving & foamed players and new Prospectors out for fame & fortune dropping onto the surface.
Do I need another account to play the game?
No, we want to keep it simple. All you need is an Epic or Steam account.
