Sanctum is the world's first FPS tower defense game and is set in a beautiful science fiction world. You take the role of Skye, an elite soldier sent out to protect her hometown, Elysion One, from hordes of mysterious alien creatures. To facilitate your success you construct defensive structures and upgrade handheld weapons. Jump right into the fray and wreak havoc with your own weapons - unlike regular tower defense games, you are a key part of the defense. Sanctum has taken the best features of first person shooters and tower defense games to create something totally unique.

Sanctum has undergone some heavy work lately and we're getting closer to the release! The flow of news here have been lacking so we try to remedy that by announcing some big things today. The beta of Sanctum will soon be available on Steam!

To celebrate this we are revealing some additional details of the features that will be available in the game at launch.

  • Three unique environments with different strategic opportunities for mazing
  • Revamped build system for much higher efficiency and ease
  • Scaleform GFx menus and UI
  • Co-op multiplayer endless game mode
  • Achievements
  • Leaderboards

The Beta will contain both single and multi-player action and be available to everyone who pre-order the game on Steam for a discounted price. The full version of the game will be released in April.

Keep your eyes open for the pre-order and beta event on Steam in March, and until then check out our brand new trailer from the full version of Sanctum!


If you have any questions about Sanctum or Coffee Stain Studios, just go ahead and ask! :D

Cheers!
