'Sanctum 2' (ALL) Road to Elysion DLC Coming Next Week

Melding tower-defense and first-person shooter genres, Sanctum 2 enables players to take on the role of an elite soldier whose mission is to protect the oxygen-producing Cores from hordes of deadly aliens who are threatened by their existence.

Gamers take the role of Skye, an elite soldier sent out to protect her home town, Elysion One, from hordes of mysterious alien creatures. To successfully defend your land, you must construct and upgrade a labyrinth of defensive structures and towers. When the havoc starts and the wave of baddies is unleashed, you jump right into the action with your own fully-upgradeable weapons and play a key role in the defense. Sanctum has taken the best features from FPSs and tower defense games to create something totally unique, and Sanctum 2 will only build on and improve that experience.

As the first of four DLC expansion packs planned for the tower-defense/first-person shooter hybrid, Road to Elysion features new explosive weaponry, impressive tower additions and enhanced enemies, as well as an additional mysterious playable character revealing a darker Sanctum 2 storyline.

“The DLCs for Sanctum 2 will be much more substantial and larger compared to the DLCs for the first Sanctum,” says Oscar Jilsen, Lead Designer at Coffee Stain Studios.  “You will see new maps, enemies, perks, weapons, towers, and even a new playable character once in a while.  Our goal with the DLCs for Sanctum 2 is to add more replayability and more mind-blowing madness for our biggest fans!”

Road To Elysion Expansion Pack Key Features:

  • New Playable Character - The DLC storyline centers around TSYGAN, a new shadowy playable character.
  • New Weapons – Two weapons have been added including the rapid-firing Gatling Laser.
  • New Tower Options - Two new towers, including the Range Spire, that dramatically increases the range of nearby offensive towers.
  • Four Additional Unique Maps – Four brand new maps with refreshing interactive elements add exciting new tactics to each DLC level.
  • Enhanced Enemies - From new support monsters that heal and mutate the attacking horde to a brand new aerial enemy boss, players should be prepared for this heightened challenge.
  • Additional Perks – Customize your character even more with six awesome new perks, including a perk that gives you a pet robot that will fight for you!

Sanctum 2: Road To Elysion DLC expansion pack will be available on June 26, 2013 for $3.99, or you can get the Sanctum 2 Season Pass for $11.99.

Sanctum 2 is available for $14.99 on Steam (PC), and 1200 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live.
