Vicious Circle Open Beta

Rooster Teeth Games announces an open beta test is underway for Vicious Circle on Steam, offering the chance to check out what they describe as an "uncooperative shooter." Here's a Gameplay Trailer, and here are details on the game:
Vicious Circle is an uncooperative multiplayer shooter set in a colorful yet gritty sci-fi universe. Gameplay is fast and frenetic with an emphasis on thwarting other players with dirty tricks at every turn. Be a mercenary and compete for loot, or take on the role of a massive monster and try to kill everything in your path. The first player to collect the biggest haul and reach the evac zone wins - unless the player controlling the big baddy gets them all first.

Work with other mercenaries to survive, but remember: only the player with the most loot wins. Should you combine forces against the terrifying monster, or sneak away to make bank while everyone else is busy? Mercenaries cannot directly harm each other, but they can use the environment and a selection of potent gadgets to outwit their opponents. Maybe lock a door at the right moment to trap another player in the same room as the monster, or use a gadget to suck the loot away from everyone around you. Just remember, what goes around comes around.
