Serious Sam 3: BFE detailed

Serious Sam 3: BFE detailed

Croteam has confirmed Serious Sam 3: BFE for a summer release and detailed some new features.

Croteam has finally lifted the lid on Serious Sam 3, confirming the key features, full title and release date for the next entry in the hilariously over-the-top Serious Sam series.

Serious Sam 3: BFE is now set for a summer 2011 release on PCs and game consoles, at which point it will introduce a brand new engine for the series.

In keeping with Croteam's tendency to create a messy timeline for the series, Serious Sam 3: BFE (which is actually the fourth major instalment, not counting ports and remakes), will be a prequel to the original game once more set in Egypt.

We don't know what BFE stands for, by the way.

Croteam has confirmed that popular enemies like the Werebull will return and that BFE will retain a furious, arcade-styled action. Other 'key features' include multiplayer, melee attacks and 16-player co-op.

Judging from the quotes in the press release, it looks like fans can expect Serious Sam 3: BFE to feature much of the crass humour the series is known for too...

'Holy crap, I am going to make a boatload of cash of this game,' said Fork Parker, chief financial officer at publisher Devolver Digital, in the press release. 'I mean that’s what this is all about, right? If this thing comes out in the summer my wife is totally getting the [breast enlargement] she’s been asking for.'

The 16 player co-op feature is enough for me even if the game is just run & gun.

:D

No you silly wabbit... it's ROCKETS FOR EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING MUST DIE! BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD... i.e. nothing short of complete and utter insanity once everyone gets rocket launchers.

*add's to purchase list*

Look forward to this!

Does the other really not know what the initials stand for, is that part of the this dry, English wit I keep hearing about.

other = author. Sly, English wit triumphs over poor grammatical and proofreading skills. Personal fail.

Ah that makes sense, although that sounds like a surreal combination of Croatian and US humour to be honest.

Excellent news by the way, I've always been an insanely big SS fan and will definitiely pick this up on launch day. Hopefully more like TFE and TSE than SS2 - there were simply not enough bad guys at any one time in the sequal.

Given the first Serious Sam was "Serious Sam - The First Encounter", and this is a prequel, I assume BFE stands for "Before the First Encounter".
