Posted on December 18, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope the latest addition in the titular Serious Sam series has added a brand new online co-op mode with the game’s latest update.  Brought to Steam Early Access by series developer Croteam and Publisher Deep Silver – this newest update is the first for the game since becoming available for purchase.

The Serious Sam experience in VR is all about fast paced dual wielding action as players take down hordes of enemies either alone or with a friend using the HTC Vive controllers or the newly released Oculus Touch controllers.  The current version of the game offers a number of different weapons including miniguns, tommy guns, large laser weapons, shotguns and other tools of feath that the series is known for. All told Serious Sam VR currently offers ten different weapons with two playable planets – each containing four different zones to spread mayhem within. Croteam are promising the addition of more weapons & planets as development continues.

Here is the game’s recommended specs:

  • OS: Windows 10 64bit
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-6800 equivalent
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: AMD Fury or NVIDIA GTX 1070
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Storage: 10 GB available space
  • Additional Notes: HTC Vive VR headset plus hand controllers

Serious Sam 3: Jewel of the Nile Announced

Posted on July 10, 2012 by Daniel Shannon

Croteam and Devolver Digital have announced Serious Sam 3: Jewel of the Nile. This expansion pack for Serious Sam 3: BFE is set for a PC release in October. Croteam’s Davor Hunski claims that the expansion “tells more of Sam’s story and cranks up the insanity.” Having played through some of it, I’m surprised to learn that Serious Sam 3 had a story (other than “go kill these monsters”).

According to the press release, the expansion will feature three new campaign missions set around the Temple of Isis on the real life Egyptian island of Philae. Devolver Digital’s Fork Parker posed the question as to whether Philae had any nude beaches, adding that “the only thing better than fast-paced, over-the-top action is a perfect pair of digital flesh melons.” Unfortunately, this doesn’t seem to be the case in real life. However, reality doesn’t feature hordes of screaming headless guys running around with bombs grafted on their hands, either. So, the developers shouldn’t feel constrained by anything remotely resembling reality.
