The latest trailer for Sanctum 2, the first-person shooter and tower defense hybrid from Coffee Stains Studio, has gone live, showing off some of the title's addictive gameplay.

The original Sanctum game came out in 2011 and proved to be a hit on Steam. The game let you build up a mazes and then had your traverse them in first-person shooter mode, so that you could make sure nothing broke your defenses.

Sanctum 2 promises more of the same kind of building and extermination gameplay with some added co-op and a story arc that will be accompanied by an in-game graphic novel.

The enemies below look to be the stuff of nightmares, but a few well-placed turrets should slow them down enough for you and your teammates to set up the final blow. Also, rocket launchers would not be unwelcome in most situations, so always keep one handy!

Keep those power-cores protected when this game is released on PC, Xbox Live, and the PlayStation Network later this year. Watch the trailer and let us know if you're excited to go on the defense!
