Serious Sam HD demo arrives on Steam


— 2:46 PM on April 5, 2010

A few months back, we told you about Croteam's high-definition remake of Serious Sam: The First Encounter, which subsequently hit Steam and Xbox Live Arcade with a price tag of around $15. Well, at long last, those of you who just don't have that kind of money (or just like free stuff) can now sample the game for free.

The Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter demo is available right now from Steam. Here's what awaits players, according to the Steam description page:

  • Single-Player Level – Get a taste of the intense action by battling through a specially designed demo level set in sunny Karnak with redesigned gameplay and changed-up enemy positions for unique battles. This demo level is so big it could take hours to get through each of the difficulty levels!
  • Cooperative Mode – Fight through the Karnak demo level with up to 16 players and finally get a chance to see classic Serious Sam coop in all its visual glory!
  • Deathmatch Mode – Step back into the glory days of frantic deathmatch in the visually upgraded Desert Temple map.
  • High-def graphics or not, the game doesn't have very demanding requirements: a single-core Pentium 4 or Athlon 64, 1GB of RAM, and a GeForce 7600-series, Radeon X1600-series, or newer graphics card. The demo is only a 983MB download, too, so even folks with slower connections won't need to wait all day to start mowing down monsters in ancient Egypt. (Thanks to Shacknews for the tip.)
