The Cycle: Frontier is set to release free-to-play sci-fi Tarkov on Steam and EGS June8

The time is coming. Yager''s The Cycle: Frontier, the upcoming sci-fi adaptation of Escape from Tarkov, has a release date. After two major closed beta tests, the developer revealed that PC players will be available on Steam, and the Epic Games Store will be able to drop in on June 8.

The pre-season starts when the shooter receives a soft start. The first season will begin in earnest two weeks later, bringing with it the first battle pass.

While the game has gotten some buzz from advertising and sponsored streams, it has gotten its revenue organically on Twitch, as well as Steam. At the moment of this writing, Frontier is Steam''s most-wishlisted free-to-play game. Both beta tests were limited, but they still managed to attract over 900,000 individuals.

The Cycle: Frontier is a PvEvP shooter based in the emerging form of extraction royale. Players must extract from the game alive or risk losing their acquired loot. Outside of the shooting and looting, players may invest their earned wealth on passive upgrades and a wide range of craftable weapons and tools.

Frontier aims to be a lighter, less punishing approach to the formula. It offers true matchmaking, for one, designed to combine players with a similar level of success. It also has a more simplified ammo and armour system, a clear map that indicates points of interest and extraction zones, and more.

Frontier is an evolution of The Cycle, one of the pioneers in the PvEvP genre. Though the original game had some success, it ultimately wasn''t enough to keep Yager going. The studio ended up killing it in favor of Frontier, and it''s now looking like that was the right call.

If you''re interested, you''ll have the game on Steam and the EGS in two weeks, and it''ll be available online for download, as well as on the Internet.
