The Cycle: Frontier begins Season 2 with a mystery “The Depths of Tharis Island”, a new endgame map

From Press Release:

BERLIN – Aug. 22, 2022 – With a total of 2.4 million players and almost 25 million hours watched on Twitch across 50,000 streamers, The Cycle: Frontier has already made its mark on the gaming landscape. Beginning Sept. 28, 2022, on Steam and the Epic Games Store, Season 2 of the game will introduce the mysterious new Tharis Island map, the third and most difficult map yet for players to explore.

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.

Meanwhile, Season 1 of The Cycle: Frontier is going strong with many major improvements rolled out in recent patches addressing the most important issues raised by the community. The Cataclysm, the end of season event which proceeds the progression wipe, will begin in the final weeks of Season 1. 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. Players will of course carry over their unspent Aurum and cosmetics from season to season.
