The Cycle: Frontier Season 2 starts in September with a new map

The Cycle: Frontier is gearing up for Season 2.

The Cycle: Frontier already has 2.4 million players, 25 million watch hours on Twitch, and 50,000 streamers. Now the free-to-play PvPvE extraction shooter is looking to expand more.

Season 2 of the game introduces the mysterious new Tharis Island map, the third and most difficult map yet for players to explore. Meanwhile, Season 1 is still going strong too with major improvements rolled out during recent patches that address the game’s most important issues.

The Cataclysm, the end-of-season event which precedes the progression wipe, will begin in the final weeks of Season 1. However, all Aurum purchased or earned in-game, along with all owned cosmetics, will not be wiped. The progression wipe will allow everyone to start the new season with a clean slate. Of course, players carry over their unspent Aurum and cosmetics from season to season.

Here’s more on what to expect in Season 2:

Season 2: “The Depths of Tharis Island” will deliver a new endgame mechanic that remains a mystery but promises to further deepen playstyle customization and combat depth, along with new loot, cosmetics and a newly improved Fortuna Pass. The deep caves of Tharis Island are crawling with horrors, but promise the most lucrative prospecting on Fortuna III. Hidden within its depths is something of mysterious alien origin that will change prospecting forever. Which intrepid Prospector will discover it and solve its riddle first?

More details will be shared in the coming weeks as we near the start of the new season.

The Cycle: Frontier Season 2 begins on September 28 via Steam and Epic Games Store.
