Developer and publisher Rooster Teeth Games revealed at Comic-Con International: San Diego that their wild multiplayer shooter, Vicious Circle will launch on August 13 on PC-via Steam for $19.99.
Set in a vibrant yet gritty comic-inspired sci-fi universe, Vicious Circle has four mercenaries compete for loot against a menacing monster – all the while competing with one another to be the one and only winner.
In each round players take on in Vicious Circle, one lucky player is selected to enter the role of an insane creature with one simple yet satisfying goal: kill all four mercenaries. This is easier said than done, however, as the merc squad can truly put a stop to the monster when working together — for instance, using their powerful abilities together to cause some serious danger. The catch with all this, though, is that the merc with the most loot wins, so buddying up with others will only get you so far in each round.
Playing dirty will clearly be the way to go, such as using gadgets, along with the environment to mess with your adversaries — whether it’s slowing them down by locking doors or trapping them in rooms, or sucking loot right out from under them. Players that are a part of the merc crew need to constantly change up their playstyle to win. But of course, if you end choosing to go the “stab you behind the back” route, just know that what goes around, comes around.
If you’re curious to know more about what makes Vicious Circle, well, vicious, dive right into our preview. Post-launch, Rooster Teeth Games does continue to plan on supporting the game, as they’ve shared a handy-dandy roadmap.
