Steel Circus has begun its Closed Alpha Test through Steam. What is Steel Circus, you may ask? Well, it is a futuristic multiplayer hero based sports game developed by the Grand Theft Auto, Max Payne, Manhunt, and Dead Island veterans at Iron Mountain Interactive and published by Oasis Games.
So how do you play the game? You control one of the champions and compete in online multiplayer matches. Your objective is to score by shooting the ball into the opponent’s goal by any means necessary. Each champion have 2 different special skills. There are characters ranging from support roles with buffs and heals to brawlers. Each power are made around teamwork. You need to really have a strategy and co-op well with your team mates to win.
“Each champion has two special skills, and they all have vastly different battle styles. 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.” – Daniel Lin, Marketing VP of Oasis Games
Check out Steel Circus Teaser.
From the teaser, Steel Circus really does look like a fun game to play with friends. I am getting this vibe that the gameplay is like machiam Futsal and Dodgeball mashed together with obstacles that prevent you from scoring and set in the future. I would love to play this with friends. Confirm will laugh until crazy.
“We’ve combined our love of Future Sports games and MOBAs to create something we feel is different and very worthy for all fans of the genres. Featuring a top-down perspective onto the playing field of the future, unique team-play capabilities, and a smattering of MOBA elements, Steel Circus is truly a unique take on Future Sports.
