Core Engage and Daedalic Entertainment Unleash the Apocalypse as New Cycle Launches Today

Witness the dawn of a new era in city-building, where the choices you make today will echo through the ages.

Istanbul, Turkey / Hamburg, Germany. 18th January, 2024 – Turkish Developer Core Engage and veteran games publisher of 18 years, Daedalic Entertainment, are thrilled to announce the Steam Early Access launch of the highly anticipated survival city-builder, New Cycle, on 18th January, 2024 at 10am PT / 7pm CET. 

Brace yourselves for an exhilarating journey through a post apocalyptic world where the fate of civilisation rides on your ability to rebuild, rediscover and adapt as you evolve your settlement from a humble camp into a vibrant dieselpunk metropolis all with convyor belt-systems and trains.

 

 

New Cycle introduces a distinct blend of city-building, survival-mechanics, and resource management, creating an immersive gaming experience that challenges players to not only construct but also nurture their towns. With a keen focus on population well-being and morale, players must navigate the complexities of this new world to show that a life beyond mere survival is possible.

 

 

Key Features of Early Access Launch:

  • Post Apocalyptic City-Building Extravaganza:
    Dive into a visually stunning dieselpunk world as you craft your town from scratch. Witness the evolution from a small camp to a sprawling metropolis, using rediscovered technologies like trains and conveyor belts, to thrive amidst the remnants of a world permanently altered by catastrophes.
  • Deep Management Mechanics:
    Challenge your strategic prowess with intricate mechanics revolving around resource and production chain management. Every decision matters as you grapple with the delicate balance of survival in a world teetering on the edge.
  • Battle the Elements:
    The aftermath of the solar flare has forever altered the Earth’s climate, resulting in severe and unforgiving weather. Thunderstorms, hurricanes and other extreme anomalies will challenge your resilience and adaptability.
  • Population is Paramount:
    Prioritise the well-being and morale of your citizens, or face dire consequences of neglecting their needs. Understanding that the strength of your community lies in the happiness and satisfaction of its inhabitants is essential for survival.
  • Tailor the Gameplay to Your Needs:
    Early Access offers two distinct gameplay modes – campaign and sandbox. In campaign mode you will face difficult decisions during handcrafted story events that will determine the future of your town. In sandbox mode you can play at your own pace and create the dieselpunk metropolis you always dreamed of. 
  • Expansive Content:
    The launch version will give you access to 54 buildings, 47 resources, three classes of society and eight eras - or cycles as they’re called in the game - to go through. Experience this rich set of content in three different biomes, each presenting its own set of challenges and opportunities.
