Development Update #17: Patches and DLCs!
Sanctum 2 is live after many months of hard work and we can’t even express how great we felt when we saw thousands of simultaneous players in-game on launch day!
However, it doesn’t stop there! Player feedback is extremely important for us and we definitely want to keep updating and improving the game to make it even better. When Sanctum 1 was released it had 3 maps and no 4-player co-op, but it was through our community’s feedback that we made it the incredible game that it is today. Our last patch for Sanctum 2 received amazing feedback from our player community, and that only motivates us further to keep making our fan base proud of owning Sanctum 2.
We’re currently looking over the most popular improvement requests and planning our future patches. Since we’re a small and self-funded indie company, we don’t always have the resources to add huge requests to the game, but we’ll always do our very best to make our players happy. We don’t have a big marketing budget, so we have to rely on our players’ word of mouth to put food on our tables!
You're very welcome to post your suggestions on our forums.
I wanted to talk a little bit about DLCs as well. The feedback from our community for the DLCs in Sanctum 1 wasn’t very good – players simply didn’t like buying individual maps for $1 each. That’s why the DLC plan for Sanctum 2 will be completely different! The DLC packs for Sanctum 2 will be more like big expansions. One DLC will add new maps, new weapons, new enemies, new perks, new towers and maybe even a new character every once in a while! We want the DLCs for Sanctum 2 to add lots of replayability and many more hours of gameplay to our most devoted fans that love our game.
