Serious Sam 3: BFE announced

Croteam has announced Serious Sam 3: BFE for Summer 2011 and released some fresh screenshots. Check out the press release for more details.


TIME AND PLACE ARE SUBJECTIVE – BOOM! That was the sound of Serious Sam 3: BFE news dropping. Croteam’s Serious Sam 3: BFE is a glorious throwback to the golden age of first-person shooters where men were men, cover was for amateurs and pulling the trigger made things go boom. Serving as a prequel to the original indie sensation, Serious Sam: The First Encounter, Serious Sam 3: BFE takes place during the Earth’s final struggle against Mental’s invading legions of beasts and mercenaries. Set against the collapsing temples of an ancient civilization and the crumbling cities of 22nd century Egypt, Serious Sam 3: BFE is an exhilarating fusion of classic twitch shooters and modern gameplay features.

“Serious Sam 3 is about pure fun and unfiltered action,” said Davor Hunski, chief creative officer of developer Croteam. “We wanted to expand on everything gamers love about the series while adding some genuinely unique new features to really enhance the mayhem Serious Sam is known for.”

Trademark features such as relentless hordes of spectacular enemies and expansive outdoor battlefields return in Serious Sam 3: BFE at full force. Other features include:
Frantic Arcade-Style Action – The calling card of the Serious Sam series, hold down the trigger and lay waste to a never-ending onslaught of attackers or face being overrun by Mental’s savage beasts. No cover systems, no camping – it’s just you and them. All of them.

Mental’s Fearsome Legions – A new battalion of unforgettable minions including the rumbling Scrapjack and towering Khnum join the legendary Headless Kamikaze, Gnaar and Sirian Werebull. Your days of mowing down zombie Nazi space pirates are over.

Serious Melee Attacks – When an enemy slips by your wall of lead and pain, use one of the all-new innovative melee moves to drop an enemy right where they stand in the most violent way possible.

Pure Multiplayer Mayhem – Play through the full campaign mode with up to 16 players or drop the gauntlet and let the heavy ordinance fly in versus modes like Deathmatch and Beast Hunt. This is the next level of Serious Sam multiplayer and all hell is about to break loose.

“Holy crap, I am going to make a boatload of cash of this game,” said Fork Parker, chief financial officer at Devolver Digital, the Serious Sam 3: BFE publisher. “I mean that’s what this is all about, right? If this thing comes out in the summer my wife is totally getting the tit job she’s been asking for.”

Serious Sam 3 will bring the boom to PC and game consoles this summer.

When asked for further comment, Fork replied, “Bam. Tit job.”

Riffing Call of Duty and Gears of War, heck yeah!

Didn't expect it to be that gorgeous, considering Serious Sam 2. Hope those are in-game.

That looks amazing! If they can get anywhere near that on consoles, I'll be happy.

Haha. A couple of those environments had me thinking immediately of Call of Duty 4.

This is actually kind of scary if you consider hundreds of waves of those things running at you screaming. May give me a nightmare. I knew croteam was working on something fierce though, if you play Serious Sam HD maxed out on PC it is amazing.

I see two reasons to play this game. 1) It just looks like good 2) I'm all about supporting tits.

Those totally aren't bullshots. Horrendously posed, sure, but they're not even the super-sampled magazine bullshit you so frequently see. If they are bullshots, they're certainly not beyond the current state of technology. There will be far more mindblowing stuff seen at GDC this week :)

OMG. 16 player co-op?!
Imagine the amount of enemies on screen with that many players.

I'm a bit skeptical on that, but this team is crazy so they could do that bec this game is MADNESS!

In the words of Simon - "Dream of (at least) a Thousand Pages".

These will be monsters though, so keep your rubbers concealed.

Hopefully they clean up the net code a little. 16 player co-op is a giant mess in SSHD.

I am looking forward to this.
