Sanctum 2 is out! The sequel to the 2011 tower defense/first person shooter hybrid has finally hit, and developer Coffee Stain Studios is celebrating with a nice little launch trailer. The video manages to capture the game's intense action quite well, showing off a lot of gameplay footage complete with guns, explosions, towers doing their shooty things, and enemies bursting into brightly colored goo. Delicious.
Sanctum 2, the sequel to the two-year-old tower defense/FPS crossover Sanctum, now has a release date. In just a week's time (May 15th), Sanctum 2 will be storming onto XBLA and PC for your alien-killing, laser-firing, core-defending pleasure. It should be released on PSN shortly thereafter, but the exact date is currently unspecified.
Sanctum 2 continues to casually stroll to its release date this summer. To keep us psyched, developer Coffee Stain Studios has released a new batch of screenshots showcasing the game's gorgeous art style along with some exotic locations and a few in-game action shots. It's a bright and shiny futuristic sci-fi world, all splattered with alien bug guts.
Well that was quick. Just a few weeks ago, Coffee Stain Studios released a tiny little teaser getting us ready for the tower defense/first person shooter hybrid Sanctum 2. Now, real and actual gameplay footage has been released! The trailer has about, oh, 60 seconds of in-game stuff going on, with plenty of dramatic shots showing you just how screwed you'll be if you stop placing defense towers or running around shooting swamp creatures with your customizable guns.
The tower defense/FPS hybrid Sanctum turned more than a few heads when it was released in 2011. It got enough attention that developer Coffee Stain Studios announced a sequel the very next year and has been hard at work ever since, building the game's engine anew and incorporating loads of player feedback. Now, Sanctum 2 is being teased out in small doses, and the first delivery includes just enough eye candy to get our attention.
The tower defense genre is a crowded one, but variations on that theme can hit with great success, such as Co-Optimus favorite Dungeon Defenders, Orcs Must Die, and last year's FPS twist on the genre, Sanctum.
