Posted under News by Erik Johnson on Thursday, November 3rd, 2011 -

Coffee Stain Studios has released a major new update for its FPS tower defense hybrid Sanctum, available to download now for owners of the title on Steam.

The patch adds a ton of new content including three new modes (Bounty, Pre-Built, and Stamina), the Kairos tower, the REX weapon, many new localizations, improvements, gameplay tweaks, bug fixes, and more.

From the full change log:

Sanctum Update – THE OLD CITY
