Skövde, Sweden – June 20, 2013 – Renowned indie development team Coffee Stain Studios announced today that the first DLC expansion pack for Sanctum 2 will release on June 26th for PC via Steam. As the first of four major 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!
Utilizing key elements of both tower-defense and first-person shooter genres, Sanctum 2 players 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. The new Road to Elysion expansion pack delves deeper into the main storyline revealing a sinister secret behind the colonization of Loek III. Players set up defensive towers to take out the waves of attacking enemies and then jump head-on into the fray, either alone or as part of a squad in four-player co-op multiplayer.
Sanctum 2: Road To Elysion DLC expansion pack will be available on Steam for $3.99. With more expansive DLC updates coming in the very near future, fans should take advantage of the Sanctum 2 Season Pass which includes all four planned expansion packs for only $11.99.
