    The Cycle: Frontier (Tarkov in SPAAAAACE!!!)

    Think Tarkov, but maybe better?

    • Maps are instanced for 6 hours. So people are spawning in and extracting all the time. This means no more waiting for matching. You literally click go and are in the map fast.
    • Team limit of 3
    • Simpler gun/gear loadout system which means you can throw on gear quickly and get in to a match fast
    • Higher tier gear is crafted so people can't chad 24/7
    • No Flea market
    • 3 Factions you can do missions for to gain rep which allows you to buy faction items and guns
    • Keys and loot rooms
    • Puzzles that unlock loot rooms
    • No skills
    • No item tetris because all items are the same size
    • Upgradable hideout
    • Instead of SCAVs you have creatures that you have to kill to get items needed to upgrade


    AFAIK it is F2P with plan to fund through cosmetics.

    Closed Beta is going on through Nov 1st. Get your beta key request in on the Steam page. Mine took overnight to go through. Expected release is 2022.

    Weee, mutants!
    I was somewhere around Old Man Star, on the edge of Essence, when drugs began to take hold.

    Itīs super casual sci-fi Tarkov. Feels like Tarkov 2017 or so, way to go but nice ideas overall.

    Full loot makes the pvp a bit more fun but so far i died 5-6 times to people sniping the extract and once to someone just running into me on extract and once in a normal open world fight.
    Guess the snipers need a bit of tuning or at least the extract-ships a kind of shield/dome around them so you can attack people on extract but not right out sniper camp the pickup.

    Played some more while bored and the little exploration on the planet is well done.

    Most bigger bases have at least one door to a good loot room locked without power. You have to get some powercores from around the place, sometimes even with little "puzzles" to unlock these and get the good stuff.
    The uplink stations have consoles to download data if you brought or found a HDD and you can do it again and again to download more data. Of course the station is pretty loud while doing that so it invites other players to come and steal your stuff.

    I am sure there is more stuff i did not see yet but that alone makes it fun to explore the map right now.


    I miss stuff like that in Tarkov, ZB-013, Interchange or some mechanics on Reserve are kinda nice but this is a whole step ahead of that. Hope stuff like that will be on Streets of Tarkov in the future.
    Up for a duo if someone plays this still.

    Guns make the news, science doesn't.
