Circuit Breakers: 2nd Anniversary

Hey Breakers!

This news was worth the wait! Starting next week we'll be rolling out Circuit Breakers' 2nd Anniversary update on PC, PS4, and XBOX One. Version 3.0 adds 4 new characters to the game, a new gamemode, dozens of new log entries, a new jukebox mode, 3 new powerups, a testing range, 50 new challenges, new music, performance improvements, and many bugfixes. With all this new content we think you'll have a great time picking Circuit Breakers up right where you left it! For our friends on Steam the update will include trading cards for each of the playable characters in the game, we hope you'll have a blast putting together the full set to unlock the cool emotes and backgrounds we've put together for the game.

Today we'd like to introduce you to Wavebuster, Circuit Breakers' latest gamemode. Wavebuster is a mix between the classic top-down action of Circuit Breakers with a little bit of tower defense. In order to succeed in Wavebuster you'll need to keep the hypercore, and yourself, in one piece for the duration of a few waves. Between waves you'll have the opprotunity to spend cash on walls and turrets to help you defend 6 unique maps that we've put together that we know you'll love. Check out this gameplay video to get a quick glimpse at what you'll be playing next week!


Wavebuster is our final big addition to the game, thanks for being great fans for 2 years! (I can't believe it's been that long!)

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.
