XBLA DLC with Achievements

A month ago, this DLC was released onto the Games Store but was removed after a matter of hours. The content returns, hopefully on a more permanent basis this time.

Sanctum 2
• "Sanctum 2 - Expansion Pack"
Achievements: 5 for an additional 100G
Price: US$4.99 / £3.99 / €4.99 / AU$6.65

The expansion pack contains two separate DLC packs. As the Xbox.com description is extremely confusing, I'm going to refer you to our earlier article for the details on the first DLC, "Road To Eylsion". The details, screenshots and trailer below are for the second piece of DLC, "Ruins of Brightholme".

The new expansion pack takes place in the “The Slums” of Brightholme, where inhabitants must improvise with tools and local materials to defend against the onslaught of alien monsters. Players set up defensive towers to take out the waves of attacking enemies and then jump head-on into the fray, either alone or as part of a squad in four-player co-op multiplayer.

Key Features:

• Improvised Weapons – Take apart enemies invading the Slums with two “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. Secondary attacks of these weapons are uber cool.
• 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 – Now 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.
