Development Update #18: The road to the road to Elysion
The first DLC for Sanctum 2 has been released, buy it on steam HERE.
We’ve really tried setting the bar high with our first DLC, as it includes:
- Four new maps
- A new playable character class (TSYGAN the assassin)
- Two new weapons
- Two new towers
- Six new perks
- Three new enemies
- A continuation of the in-game graphic novel and story
We’re completely self-funded at Coffee Stain Studios, which means that we don’t have publisher deadlines to follow or new games that we are forced to develop to maintain our funding. We are funded completely and directly through the sales of our games, which means that we can keep developing, patching and supporting our games as long as it puts food on our tables. So far we’ve planned on producing three more DLCs before the end of February 2014. We can’t promise exactly what’ll be in them, but we can say that their content will be similar to our first DLC – four new maps with story, new weapons, towers, perks, enemies, and maybe a new playable character once in a while. That means the DLCs will in total provide almost as much content as the original game, which we hope makes the Season Pass well worth it.
Even though we need to sell our DLCs for us to be able to eat and pay rent while developing them, we’ll still provide free patches and updates for as long as we can afford – Sanctum 2 is the biggest and most awesome project we’ve ever made, so we definitely want to make it as polished and perfect as possible!

Finally, I also wanted to comment on our PSN release. We sent over Sanctum 2 to PSN some time ago, but it's still in the submission process at Sony. Sadly that's all the information we have at the moment, so thanks for being patient with us for so long! Hopefully it'll be out really soon now.
That’s all for this time, thanks for reading!
