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.

Report article RSS Feed Patch next week & Glade map

Sanctum will be patched with FREE CONTENT next week. The upcoming patch features a new level and a multitude of balance changes.

Posted by Oscar_Jilsén on May 5th, 2011

Having worked diligently since release it's finally time to show some early screenshots of the upcoming map in Sanctum. The map is called Glade and will be added to the game next week. Glade is designed to give the player a unique single player, as well as multiplayer experience. We're very happy with Glade and hope everybody will be, too.

Below you can see some WIP screenshots of Glade.

The patch will also feature some other anticipated changes. These changes include another, easier, difficulty mode for multiplayer. This new difficulty is the ultimate casual mode and should be a lot more fun for casual players. This additional difficulty has impacts on the other difficulties too. All in all the player gets more money the easier the difficulty. The income cap is increased as well, reaching a whopping 800 on the casual difficulty.

In addition to these changes to the full version we'll also be releasing a demo version for those that want to try it out before they buy it.

Expect the patch next week!
