Circus Electrique Gets A Release Date This September

Fight the police, posh birds and mimes in upcoming Circus Electrique - part story-driven RPG, tactics-based and the rest? Circus management.

Despite not being a fan of the circus, Circus Electrique has piqued my interest since it was officially announced. Perhaps Klabater’s The Amazing American Circus whet that appetite?

This, however, is a game from Zen Studios and Saber Interactive. It’s a turn-based experience with a steampunk flair, where you must put on the greatest show in Victorian London. It’s part story-driven RPG, part tactics, and circus management game to fill in any blanks. 

With over six unique districts where you’ll take of the Bobbies (the old fuzz), British Sailors gone bad, Posh Girls, and of course, the occasional menacing Mime or Robobear, you’ll likely to be the juggler in the crew.

Key features for Circus Electrique include:

  • Electrifying RPG Combat: Assemble an amazing team of acrobatic artists. Choose from 15 playable archetypes like Strongmen, Fire Blowers, Escape Artists, Clowns, and other classic circus performers, each offering a deep variety of tactical skills and decisions in battle. Balance their positioning and abilities strategically to overcome whatever challenges you may encounter.
  • A Circus Like No Other: Immerse yourself in a striking world and story 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 combine to determine the success of each show – and you’ll need every shilling you can get to keep the lights on.

Circus Electrique will be coming to the PC (Steam and Epic Games Store), PS4/5, Xboxes and the Nintendo Switch from the 6th of September.
