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.
On thursday the 7th July Sanctum got a huge update containing something a lot of people have been asking for; 4-player co-op! The new version of Sanctum allows you to play up to 4-players on all maps that are currently in the game. That’s not the only change, though. Aside from general bug fixes, balance changes and optimization we’ve got quite a few eagerly awaited features!

On Thursday the 7th July Sanctum got a huge update containing something a lot of people have been asking for; 4-player co-op! The new version of Sanctum allows you to play up to 4-players on all maps that are currently in the game. That’s not the only change, though. Aside from general bug fixes, balance changes and optimization we’ve got quite a few eagerly awaited features!
That’s right, players can now help each other build and upgrade towers. This gives birth to a plethora of new possible strategies and makes multiplayer even more fun! This also means that good co- peration can get you and your friends even further than before!
The multiplayer before was explicitly endless, get as far as possible until you lose and get a high score. Not anymore, though! Even though you can still choose to play an endless game you can also set a wave limit. When this wave limit is reached you win the game!
Are your friends AFK and you still want to play an endless game? It is now possible to play endless games in single player. Because the difficulty scales with the amount of players you can compete with everyone else, singleplayer or multiplayer!
Turbo mode in multi-player is an option you’ll be able to use in conjunction with the other game modes and difficulties. What it does is it gives you the maximum resource income right away. Perfect for players that want to get into the action right away!…and more! This update is filled with changes. Some are big like the ones mentioned above and some are small like being able to “ping” in the overview. We’re really happy with this update and believe it will bring something for everybody! On top of this Sanctum is currently on the Steam summer sale, so if you still haven’t picked the game up it’s a brilliant time to do so!
