  • “…an intoxicating blend of co-op FPS action and strategic TOWER DEFENSE.” - IGN - 8.5/10
  • "...the most fun I've had with a tower defense game in a long time." - Game Informer - 8.5/10

About This Game

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.

Sanctum 2 is just amazing, even better then the original. Combining First Person Shooters and Tower Defence into one was an amazing idea, but giving it a bigger storyline and more in-depth characters just made it so much better. The DLC's for Sanctum 2 just add to an already amazing story. With it's up to 4 player co-op, perk system and vast array of weapons, it really made me want to just keep playing it. The only things that drags it down are the limited amount of towers, only three tiers for towers and the lack of upgradeable weapons. Strongly suggested for people who greatly enjoyed the original.

This game is ridiulously entertaining in co-op. Even though the last 2 DLC-campaigns were a little easy, there are still some really tough maps and you will have countless hours of fun :^)

This is like the best TD I ever played. Skill tree? Check. Tons of towers at your disposal? Check. Endless replayability? Check! This game is definitely worth it.

Sanctum 2 has terrible Linux support. Not only does it run much less smoothly than its Windows counterpart, it frequently crashes. On some levels (such as "Canopy") it will crash 100% of the time. Changing the MPAA graphic setting also reliably causes a crash. Sometimes the game will freeze, making you forcefully close it, or X server must be restarted, or the OS must be restarted entirely. No combination of GPU drivers, GPU settings or game graphics settings resolves this.

Sanctum 2 is brought to you by the same developers as Goat Simulator, the game that's so buggy users have decided (as you will see from MetaCritic reviews) that they must have developed it buggy >>on purpose<< as a joke. But the joke is on us, the consumers, for paying for such shoddy software as this developer puts out and refuses to fix.
