Roll up! Roll up! Zen Studios and Saber Interactive can announce their turn-based tactics RPG/circus management game Circus Electrique is launching 6 September 2022 for consoles and PC. Lead a carnival of heroes to save steampunk Victorian London in this year’s most unique turn-based tactical RPG
Step right up! Zen Studios and Saber Interactive have revealed that Circus Electrique, the original turn-based tactical RPG set in a steampunk version of Victorian London, will launch on Sept. 6, 2022, for PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation®4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store. When a mysterious event known as “The Maddening” turns everyday Londoners into violent killers, only the circus’s dazzling lineup of Strongmen, Fire Blowers, Clowns and other astonishing performers can save the day.
Named for the greatest show in Victorian London, Circus Electrique is part story-driven RPG, part tactics and circus management game, and completely enthralling – all with a steampunk twist. Defend the city with the unique talents of your carnival crusaders: recruit new entertainers, strategically juggle their positioning and abilities in battle, and more, all while keeping the circus up and running with new shows.
Your unlikely heroes will face off in tactical turn-based battles against Bobbies and British Sailors gone bad, aggressive Posh Girls, the occasional menacing Mime or Robobear, and other over-the-top Victorian archetypes across six sprawling districts. The game’s intricate Devotion system influences your characters’ morale and performance both in battle and in the actual circus shows you’ll manage.
