The Road to Elysion is the first release of Sanctum 2's planned string of DLC, and it brings some seriously dark stuff to the otherwise colorful tower-defense world—so, naturally, Coffee Stain Studios thought it best to encapsulate the DLC's offerings in this demented, '90s-style live action trailer, replete with backwards-facing baseball caps and crappy plastic action figures.

Wasn't that... something? In spite of the pair's face-splitting grins, this DLC actually sounds as though it'll be building upon Sanctum 2's narrative, with new playable SHODAN-like "rogue insurgent" character TSYGAN revealing the sinister origins of the conflict on LOEK III. Along with this news, she brings four new maps, two super-powered weapons, two new towers, and "enhanced enemies." It's fun for everyone!

The Road to Elysion is running for $4 over on Steam, though don't forget that you can sign up for a season pass, should you wish to check out Sanctum 2's three forthcoming DLC packs too.
