New features and release date for Season 3
01/12/2023 - On March 29, 2023, The Cycle: Frontier by Berlin-based developer studio YAGER will enter its third Season! And YAGER has a significant change in store for the start of future Seasons: The regular wipe at the start of the Season, which preserves Vanity items and Aurum but removes all other items and progress, will be the last server-wide reset.
The launch of Season 3 is therefore the perfect opportunity for new players or prospectors to continue their adventures on Fortuna III. In addition to the reset economy, new balancing, and updated campaigns, daredevils can also look forward to many new gameplay features and content that will support the story progression starting with Season 3.
Although there will be no more mandatory wipes after Season 3 launches on March 29, 2023, YAGER is currently evaluating the possibility of offering players voluntary character resets and corresponding rewards.
It is already known that Season 3 of the Extraction shooter will bring some long-awaited improvements to the game. Among them are loadout presets that allow players to choose their optimal equipment for the drop on Fortuna III. Another new feature will be in the campaigns, where players will be provided with their factions' equipment, which will remain in their possession in case of a successful evacuation. There will also be a big change in Prospect Station: The refuge in the middle of the hostile environment will become even more lively and immersive with Season 3. But not only the station welcomes new residents, Fortuna III also gets a fearsome enemy for new challenges in PVE: the Howler.
More details about the content of the new Season, as also shown in the new roadmap, will be announced in the coming weeks.
