Serious Sam 3 Gets Substantial
Substantial details, that is! Woo! News that Serious Sam 3 was going full-steam ahead was good enough, but to hear directly from the horse’s mouth – that horse being Devolver Digital in tandem with original creators Croteam, of course – that it’ll boast a 16-player co-op campaign is cause for pant-wetting celebration. It’s also not just called ‘Serious Sam 3’, it’s called ‘Serious Sam 3: BFE’. But why? What’s that stand for, eh?
"For now, it's just BFE,” chuckle the developers, so feel free to proffer your own rude guesswork. I’m pretty keen on ‘Bulbous Furry Earlobe’ myself, but then again I’m quite silly and enjoy such meandering whimsy. In any event, Serious Sam 3 will take place in 22nd century Egypt, right in the middle of a collapsing civilisation (oo-er, some curiously topical timing there…) ravaged by terrifying but shootable beasts. Those beasts will include the return of signature baddies like the Headless Kamikaze, with the gameplay itself set to tune up its close-range fisticuffs with an assortment of crunchy new melee weaponry. Due out around May and sounding good, gents.
Chuck a partay!
