Skövde, Sweden – October 4, 2012 – Coffee Stain Studios has released a new update for their sci-fi action tower-defense game, Sanctum , which is available on Steam. The new patch, named “Still Alive” is a free update that adds two new towers (Drone and Accelerator), as well as a brand new weapon, the Tesla Gun.
Also available today is “Sanctum – Map Pack 2” which adds in three new levels to the game (Industry, Chasm, and Invasion), each with their own new challenges through never before tested layouts. Sanctum – Map Pack 2 is available now for $4.99 on Steam. To celebrate the release, all Sanctum DLC (including Map Pack 2) will be available for 20% off for a limited time.
Additionally, Coffee Stain Studios has announced a Sanctum free weekend. From October 11 through 14, Sanctum will be free to play on Steam, with the base game and Sanctum Collection on sale at a 75% discount, along with a 20% discount on all DLC packs.
Sanctum is a fresh take on the tower-defense genre and places the player right into the frenetic fray with tight first-person shooter gameplay mechanics. Gamers take the role as Skye, an elite soldier sent out to protect her hometown, Elysion One, from hordes of mysterious alien creatures. To successfully defend land, players must construct and upgrade a labyrinth of defensive structures and towers. When the havoc starts and the wave of baddies is unleashed, gamers jump right into the action with fully-upgradeable weapons to play a key role in the defense. Sanctum has taken the best features from FPS and tower defense games to create something totally unique.
