Change is upon us and while the Closed Beta of The Cycle: Frontier is running strong right now, the original The Cycle has just closed its servers today. Fortunately, they will be back online next year in the form of the full release of The Cycle: Frontier.
We thank you for your loyalty and your dedication to the game over the years. We know many of you will miss the “old” The Cycle, and we hope to see many of you in The Cycle: Frontier as well. To show our gratitude we’ve set up a range of compensations for our existing players:
IF IT’S UNLOCKED, IT’S YOURS TO KEEP
First things first, if you previously added The Cycle to your Epic Games Store library, it will be available again in the form of the new version “The Cycle: Frontier” on its release next year.
If you have previously played The Cycle and unlocked or bought any content, be it in the in-game shop, as part of a founder’s pack, a starter pack, or through the Fortuna pass, you will keep all your unlocked cosmetics and any aurum still in your account!
The only exceptions are foam poses and vehicle skins. As these won’t be part of The Cycle: Frontier, you will instead get the aurum equivalent for these items added to your account on the release of The Cycle: Frontier. For each foam pose unlocked you will receive 300 Aurum and, for each unlocked vehicle, 1200 Aurum will be added to your account, no matter how and where you had acquired these.
ALL PURCHASES MADE IN 2021 WILL BE REFUNDED
In addition to this, any real money purchases in The Cycle that were made this year since January 1st, 2021 will get fully refunded. Thanks a lot to Epic Games for making this happen!
For instance, if you’ve bought any starter packs or Aurum for the game this year, keep an eye on your email inbox for a message from Epic Games about the refund. It will normally be issued to the payment method that was used for the purchase. You can find more info on the refund policy here: https://www.epicgames.com/site/en-US/store-refund-policy
Regardless of the refund, the same rules apply to unlocked items. For example, if you bought a starter pack this year, you will get the purchase value refunded and you will keep the items that were included in the pack, on your account, when The Cycle: Frontier launches.
Finally, we have our veteran rewards scheme, a set of unique rewards as well as some useful items to get you started in The Cycle: Frontier. Which rewards are unlocked will be based on your playtime and dedication to The Cycle. You can read the full details on our dedicated blogpost here.
AS THE SUN SETS ON FORTUNA, THE DAWN OF A NEW CYCLE DRAW NEAR
Last but not least, if you haven’t already, consider signing up to the closed beta to find out what awaits you in The Cycle: Frontier. The Closed Beta will run until November 1st 2021 with more upcoming opportunities to play and the full release coming in the new year. Check out the links below to sign-up.
And that concludes today’s article. Thank you all once more for all your time and dedication. We wish you a wonderful day and hope to see you all soon on Fortuna III!
