Rooster Teeth Games revealed this past weekend at Comic-Con International: San Diego that Vicious Circle will launch on Aug. 13, 2019, on Windows PC via Steam for $19.99. Set in a comic-inspired sci-fi universe with ridiculous characters and colorful art style, Vicious Circle is a fast-paced uncooperative multiplayer shooter in which four mercenaries compete for loot against a terrifying monster — and each other!
In each round of Vicious Circle, one player is selected to become a massive, unstoppable creature with a simple goal: kill all four mercenaries. The mercs can be formidable when working together, so divide and conquer, using your enhanced senses and powerful abilities to scatter foes in a panic, hunt them down and pick them off one by one.
Mercs can team up with their rivals to survive, but only the player with the most loot wins. And that means playing dirty every chance you get. Use your gadgets and the environment to mess with your adversaries: lock doors to slow them down, trap them in rooms with the monster, and suck loot out from under them. Should you join forces against the monster hunting you down, or sneak away to gain the upper hand while everyone else is busy? The choice is yours, but remember — what goes around comes around!
