Sanctum 2 DLC “Ruins of Brightholme” Releases Tomorrow

Sanctum 2 DLC “Ruins of Brightholme” Releases Tomorrow


If you PC users are feeling left out of all the buzz surrounding the Sanctum 2 releasing on Playstation Network, fear not!  Coffee Stain Studios has announced a second DLC for Sanctum 2 titled “Ruins of Brightholme“.  This new DLC will feature a bunch of new features that include: menacing “infected” enemies, larger interactive map elements, and grittier weapons, like the Circle Saw.

This new expansion pack for Sanctum 2 will take place in the slums of Brightholme where players will have to improvise with weapons and materials to defend against hordes of aliens either alone or with three other friends.  Other key features will include:

  • Improvised Weapons –destroy enemies with two new “tool-inspired” weapons: Nail Gun and Circle Saw. The Nail Gun fires highly damaging industrial nails while the Circle Saw delivers deadly decapitating melee attacks.  These weapons include secondary attacks you’ll have to buy the DLC to check out.
  • Bigger, Badder Interactive Levels – The popular interactive map elements of the first expansion pack gets bigger in Ruins of Brightholme. Four new playable maps will feature trigger events such as explosive traps and rising toxic liquid areas challenging players to adapt their tower defense designs around these elements.
  • Two Additional Defense Towers – Rupture Mines continue to damage enemies based on the speed and distance they travel while the unusually random Makeshift Tower can fire with critical damage or shutdown at any time.
  • Challenging Enemies – The Jumper will cause players headaches by clearing walls and towers with a single bound.  Infected Explorers – mutated human beings – shamble recklessly toward players with insane regenerative abilities and powerful melee attacks.
  • Powerful Perks – Customize your character with seven perks that include kill streaks that increase damage, faster movement and greater damage at full health, and even the “Thor Module” perk that enables towers to emit a shockwave each time it kills an enemy.
  • Rank Cap Level – Increased by 5.


The Sanctum 2: Ruins of Brightholme DLC will be available for PC users on Steam September 6 for $4.99.  However, with more DLCs planned for future release, fans would be wise to purchase the season pass for $11.99.
