“Not a single desert level” this time around, promises Croteam.
It’s finally real. Developer Croteam has announced Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass, published by Devolver Digital, and released a short announcement trailer for the same. Though there’s no real information on the game, it will have a larger scale and the series’ trademark waves of enemies and absurd weapons.
The game’s Steam listing also promises that there won’t be a “single desert level”. There will be a proper reveal at E3 2018 so you’ll have to wait till then. The last mainline Serious Sam from the studio was Serious Sam 3: BFE, which released in November 2011 for PC first before heading to other platforms.
Croteam has been busy with other projects in the franchise including Serious Sam’s Bogus Detour, a top-down shooter released last year, and Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope. Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass is pretty much confirmed for PC but you can expect it to arrive on Xbox One and PS4 as well. Stay tuned for more details at E3 2018.
