Vicious Circle Comes Around

Rooster Teeth Games announces the release of Vicious Circle, as their "uncooperative" multiplayer shooter has come full circle in the under two weeks since they launched it into open beta testing. The Launch Trailer shows off the concept and some gameplay, and the announcement rounds out the news:
This over-the-top comic- and sci-fi-inspired game features the voice talent of some of Rooster Teeth’s most notable personalities and will be updated with new mercs, monsters, maps, modes, gadgets, skins, events and more with free Seasonal Battle Passes in the coming months.

In each round of Vicious Circle, one player is selected to become a massive, unstoppable creature with a simple goal: kill all four mercenaries. Mercs can team up to survive and are formidable when working together, so use your powerful abilities to pick them off one by one. If a merc goes down, they’re not necessarily out: dead mercenaries spawn creepy beings called Little Dippers that let players possess the bodies of other mercs, giving them another chance at victory.

Only one player can make it out with the loot, so the key to success in Vicious Circle is playing dirty whenever you can. 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. Do you join forces against the monster hunting you down, or sneak away to gain the upper hand while everyone is busy? The choice is yours, but remember — what goes around comes around!

On Friday, August 16, from 3PM - 9PM CDT, Rooster Teeth will host the Vicious Summer livestream event on RoosterTeeth.com and YouTube.com/LetsPlay to celebrate Vicious Circle’s release. Vicious Summer is six hours of live gaming shenanigans and comedy featuring a variety of online gaming talent separated into five teams to compete against each other Olympics-style. Competitions include playing Vicious Circle, an eating competition, Bob "Sauce" Ross challenge, Vicious Beer Pong, and other fun, outdoor summer games. Think Double Dare meets Guts, with just a little Reservoir Dogs... plus video games.
