Anomaly 2 is Now Available on Steam and to celebrate, it is 10% off for the first week!

Anomaly Warzone Earth owners also receive a additional 10% off when they purchase before May 31st.

As the sequel to Anomaly Warzone Earth, Anomaly 2 adds new features to the single-player campaign and finally puts your skills to a test in a completely unique experience: the dynamic tower defense vs. tower offense multiplayer mode!

In the years following the invasion of Earth in 2018, the planet is overrun by alien machines. Humankind is on the verge of extinction. Banded together in huge convoys, they search the frozen tundra for food and supplies. Since the war, the roles have been reversed: now our species seems to be the Anomaly on a machine-controlled planet. Your convoy, Commander, is called Yukon.

*Offer ends May 22nd at 10AM Pacific Time.
