Steel Circus, a futuristic multiplayer hero sports game developed by the Grand Theft Auto, Max Payne, Manhunt, and Dead Island veterans at Iron Mountain Interactive and published by Oasis Games, will begin its Closed Alpha Test via Steam in the next few months. In 2350, decades of seemingly endless war have worn down the solar system, and peace hangs by a thread. To promote peace and enhance communication among the most powerful factions, every year the Solar Council brings together representatives from each faction to discuss politics behind closed doors. During these talks, heroes, referred to as “champions” in-game, compete in front of roaring crowds to claim honor for their individual ethnic groups at the Steel Circus championships.Control one of several heroes and compete in online multiplayer matches with the objective of scoring by shooting the ball into the opposing goal by any means. Each champion has a different skillset with two special skills. Characters range from support roles with buffs and heals to brawling powerhouses. Mastering these abilities is the difference between decent and great players. Since each power is designed around teamplay, strategic cooperation with partners is crucial to claiming the final victory.
“Each champion has two special skills, and they all have vastly different battle styles”, said Daniel Lin, the Marketing VP of Oasis Games, “Steel Circus has a wide array of unique champions, ranging from characters with buffs and heals suitable for supporting roles, to brawling powerhouses. Mastering their abilities is the key to unlocking their potential. That’s why we define Steel Circus as a ‘Hero sports’ game. Meanwhile, players need to work together to overcome their adversaries, since every champion’s power is designed around being an effective part of a team.” Steel Circus is currently in the pre-alpha phase of production. The next scheduled milestone is the upcoming first Closed Alpha Test. The sign-up page for Steel Circus is officially available now at www.playsteelcircus.com/AlphaTest/. Subscribers will receive updates regarding specific Alpha Test schedule and further game information.
