Circuit Breakers 2.3.0 - 7 Languages, Performance Improvements, and More!

Hey Breakers,

Sorry for the radio silence, we've been caught up in a couple things since the last release. We hope this update will help you forgive us. Circuit Breakers 2.3.0 is finally here for PC! I'll go over a few of the big additions.

Translation Support
Circuit Breakers is now fully playable in 7 languages: English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Dutch, and Japanese. For players in those regions, especially younger ones, we hope this will be a welcome addition to enjoy the game in your native tongue.

Save Fixes
We noticed that many users were having issues with saving. We've cleared that up and you should be able to save and load without any problems.

Steam Cloud
Speaking of saves, Circuit Breakers' Steam Cloud support has improved as well. You can now end your game on a Windows PC and pick it up on a Linux PC. Perfect for those who want to keep their save files anywhere they go.

Lots of areas that needed attention have finally had their fair share of care and the feel of the game has improved significantly. Lots of tiny adjustments to enemies, rooms, and challenges were made and we know you'll enjoy playing even more now.

Vibration Profiles
Each character in the game has a different feel for when your controller rumbles. This is an XInput feature only so not everyone will get to try this feature out.

Visual Improvements
Graphics have been tweaked to make the game look even better than before, specifically in the electric room area. Get to room 21 and see the difference for yourself!

Performance Improvements
2.3.0 is the leanest, meanest version of Circuit Breakers to date. Even dated computers should be able to run the game with ease. Try Circuit Breakers on a laptop and play with friends anywhere on the go!

Upcoming News
We're committing to even more updates for Circuit Breakers, follow @Triverske and @ShootAllRobots on Twitter for the latest info. For those out there who haven't ascended, Circuit Breakers released for PS4 this week and wil release soon on XBOX One

Weapon type: Machine Gun
You’ve probably never met a man more full of himself than Aldo. He is the leader of the circuit breakers but his drive and confidence is unmatched and encourages the rest of the team to bring their A game. I mean, who wouldn’t want to wipe that smile off his face by sporting a bigger robot body count than him? Aldo's machine gun strikes a solid balance between range and power for an all-around great weapon.

Weapon Type: Shotgun
There are few that rival Shelbys straightforward attitude. She is often mistaken as cold, but if you have a plan you want to set in motion, Shelby’s the girl who can follow through. Her weapon of choice, the shotgun allows Shelby to get up close and personal. Every other member of the team keeps their distance from the robots but Shelby thrives when close to the enemy.

Weapon Type: Missile
There are many things you can say about Samson, but clever isn’t one of them. He is the team’s explosive guy, delivering a tremendous amount of damage with his signature missile launcher. Samson loves explosions and if you give him a recipe for a bomb, he will tell you the exact size of the explosion with 100% accuracy. So what Samson lacks in general knowledge he more than makes up for in explosive know-how.

Weapon type: Laser
Aldo would never openly admit it, but Tay is the real brains of the operation. She is responsible for creating the weapons that the Circuit Breakers team uses today. Her weapon of choice, the laser gun matches her interest in engineering. There are many scientific teams requesting her knowledge in the field of engineering, but she prefers the application instead of the theory.
