Fresh off the runaway success of Dungeon Defenders (which recently surpassed 1 million units sold across all platforms), Reverb Publishing today announced a partnership with the veteran Swedish development team at Coffee Stain Studios to bring Sanctum 2, the sequel to their incredibly popular PC title, Sanctum, to the Xbox LIVE Arcade.
Sanctum is a fresh take on the tower defense genre and places the player right into the frenetic fray with tight first-person shooter gameplay mechanics. Gamers take the role of Skye, an elite soldier sent out to protect her home town, Elysion One, from hordes of mysterious alien creatures. To successfully defend your land, you must construct and upgrade a labyrinth of defensive structures and towers. When the havoc starts and the wave of baddies is unleashed, you jump right into the action with your own fully-upgradeable weapons and play a key role in the defense. Sanctum has taken the best features from FPSs and tower defense games to create something totally unique, and Sanctum 2 will only build on and improve that experience.
Reverb Publishing’s unique business model is form fitted for each of its developers, ensuring that the developer receives the majority of the game’s revenue and maintains ownership of their titles’ IP while Reverb handles production support, first party management, marketing, public relations and distribution.
When new announcements are in, we’ll keep you updated. In the meantime, below is the trailer from the original PC hit, Sanctum.
