16 Games Like The Cycle: Frontier Based on Genre

These are games of a similar genre mix to The Cycle: Frontier. This includes games from the Open World, Shooting, Strategy and Action genres. We pick out games of a similar PEGI rating to further hone these generated suggestions.
 

The Cycle: Frontier is in These Lists

In addition to the similar games listed above, which have been linked to this game specifically in the database, you may find games with a similar theme to The Cycle: Frontier in the following lists:

Game Has Changing Weather

Video games create worlds and then invite us to play in them. These worlds are sometimes nothing like our own. Others, however, look to recreate life-like spaces, or take the real world and bend it in interesting directions.

Weather is a big part of the experience of a video game. It can create a particular mood, a sense of changing time, or can be used to change the mechanics of your interactions.
 

Squad Based Shooter

Some shooting games focus on quick reflexes and super-fast reactions. Others aim to recreate a realistic feel of the battle. One way they do this is to encourage players to communicate with each other to win.

Squad based shooting games pit large groups of players against each other, and then split each side into smaller squads or platoons of players. Each squad needs to communicate with each other to stay alive. But also, each group must communicate with each other to coordinate their attacks -- often via a leader selected in each squad.

There are also some offline games that focus on the squad as the gameplay mechanic. Games like Spec Ops: The Line develop a connection between the player and their comrades for narrative effect.
 

Survive The Night

Surviving in games is often a key element. Some games, however, make it the main focus. With minimal resources and little light can you make it through to the morning? Can you prepare a shelter as the daylight dwindles in time for you to cope with the lurking creatures of the dark?

Whether this is as simple as closing the door to keep the zombies out in Minecraft or as complex as crafting food, clothing and medicine to cope with the freezing blackness of The Long Dark, these games are exhilarating as they pose a strategic puzzle with personal consequences.

Many of these games offer an open world in which to survive, which opens up more ways of preparing for and then making it through the night time. This, of course, leads to another day where you need to spend time and resources wisely while exploring your surroundings.
