Come one, come all! Circus Electrique, the original turn-based tactical RPG from Zen Studios and Saber Interactive, is now available on PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation®4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store. Named for the greatest show in Victorian London, Circus Electrique is part story-driven RPG, part strategy game, and part circus management game – all with a steampunk twist!
When a mysterious calamity called “The Maddening” turns everyday Londoners into violent killers, only the dazzling Strongmen, Fire Blowers, Escape Artists, Clowns, Ventriloquists, and other astonishing performers of the Circus Electrique can save the day. Your unlikely heroes will face off against Bobbies and British Sailors gone bad, aggressive Posh Girls, menacing Mimes and Robobears, and other over-the-top Victorian archetypes across six sprawling districts.
It’s up to you and your carnival crusaders to put on a good show and get to the bottom of this mystery. Build a team of uniquely skilled entertainers, lead them through the city streets, and strategically juggle their positioning and abilities in battle, all while keeping the circus up and running with new shows. Circus Electrique’s intricate Devotion system influences your characters’ morale and performance both in battle and in the ongoing circus shows you’ll manage.
- Send in the Clowns: Assemble an amazing troupe of heroes with 15 playable archetypes like Strongmen, Fire Blowers, Escape Artists, Clowns, and other classic circus performers, each offering a deep variety of skills and choices in battle.
- Electrifying RPG Combat: Strategically balance your team’s positioning and abilities in turn-based tactical action against a wide range of challenging enemies.
- A Circus Like No Other: Dive into a striking world and story blending colorful 2D and 3D artwork based on vintage circus posters, Victorian-era archetypes, and classic steampunk charm.
- Manage the Greatest Show in Steampunk London: The show must go on! Rebuild the circus to its former glory and beyond, recruiting and training the most talented performers from around the world. Their skill, chemistry with one another, and overall Devotion will determine the success of each show – and you’ll need every shilling you can get to keep the lights on.
