Sanctum 2 is the sequel to the world’s first Tower Defense/FPS hybrid game. Pick from four unique character classes and embark on a mission to protect the oxygen-producing Cores from hordes of deadly aliens who are threatened by their existence. Outfit your character exactly the way you want through the new and extensive customization system. Choose your own loadout of towers, weapons and perks, but choose wisely because you are humanity’s last defense against the unrelenting hordes set out to destroy it.

Sanctum 2 is a new game completely rebuilt from the ground up using community feedback and innovative design to really push the bar of what an independent studio can do. Intense action – Deep strategy

In Sanctum 2, you will utilize elements from multiple gameplay genres to succeed. Construct towers and walls during the building phase before the enemies attack, then jump into the fray and blast everything to pieces in FPS mode. You can progress through the single-player campaign yourself, or play with up to four friends in co-op to discover the secrets of the planet LOEK III and learn the backstory on why the aliens are so intent on destroying the Cores you are sworn to protect.

Key Features:

  • Building on the success of the original game, Sanctum 2 stands alone as the only true FPS/Tower Defense hybrid. No other title delivers gameplay that seamlessly combines both genres.

  • Tower Defense – Design complex mazes and build powerful towers to stop the enemies from destroying the Cores.

  • First-Person Shooter – Don’t just sit back and watch, jump into the action yourself!

  • Four playable character classes – Each with their own unique strengths, weaknesses and weapons.

  • Vast Customization System – Pick perks or make the game crazy hard by adding Feats of Strength.

  • In-game Visual Novel – Unlock a comic-book page for every map you beat to discover the secrets of LOEK III.

  • Progression System – Increase your rank and unlock new weapons, towers and perks.

  • 4-Player Co-op – Progress through the storyline yourself or team up with other players whenever you want.

Beautifully refined

Whilst Sanctum 1 laid down an interesting and fun concept with the idea of tower defence from a first person shooter perspective. Sanctum 2 builds upon this, refining the experience beautifully with great graphical fidelity and bunch more content. With new weapons, characters, towers, enemies, traits and loads more, Sanctum 2 becomes an incredible experience for both singleplayer and multiplayer matches.


Understanding of intentions with co-op partners is important.

Although this is a sequel of the game which combined FPS and TD, our own shooting skill is needed more than TD knowledge. Because of my poor FPS skill, I could not finish difficult mode (which is called FoS in the game) without additional DLC and co-op members' help. However lengths of almost all stages were 10-20 min, so I didn't feel stress for repetitive trials. And I felt the limitation of resource which is important for TD could make the game exciting. If the co-op partners didn't have similar hopes about TD construction, the game will become insane difficulty!! But I think it is a funny point about this game.


A dream come true.

This game its like all I ever dreamed, but better. I was a very early lover of tower defense games, I liked to feel like a strategist. But in the end I would always lose and think to my self: Wouldn't it be great if i had the chance to be on the ground and make a difference? Thats why this hybrid of tower defense with FPS is amazing. it was my first tower defense/fps game, and it did reached all my expectations. If you ever had that same thought, then hurry, buy the game, you will love it. The story is very good, the gun unlock system rocks, the tower building, aiming your guns, passing the waves, making the difference on the floor, ohh man . And yet I think the best thing is that you can play co-op. Its really perfect. 10/10 if its your first TD/FPS game. Hope you find this useful and get it soon.


Completely Different From The First

There are a lot of people who didnt like Sanctum 1. I really enjoyed it. However, no matter which side of the fence you land on for this one I can say it doesnt matter what you think of it because this game is nothing like it. Obviously they are similat in that they are tower defense mixed with FPS, but unlike the first this one is meant to be played COOP. and is a great Coop game. This game almost have more of a feel of if Borderlands had a tower defnese DLC. A lot of fun with friends, solo id say you'd be better off with the original

Sanctum 2 inserts elements of FPS in the classic formula of a Tower Defense. Each area must be defended by a series of progressive assaults that are composed of two phases, namely placement of resources and real attack. The resources consist of blocks to be placed to lengthen the path of the enemy and towers to be placed in a strategic position and possibly strengthened. When flying enemies, various types of turrets, accessories, multiple nuclei to defend and boss (able to destroy blocks and then create awkward gaps) enter in the field, things get more hectic and difficult. In addition to the campaign, you can then engage in a survival mode where the objective is to resist before the inevitable end. Finally, it is worth mentioning the multiplayer co-op for up to four players. Coordinate and cover in a group during a game is really fun, and the action gets even more frenetic, with dead and respawn, and dozens of enemies swarming on the map.
