Serious Sam 3: BFE due out this summer


— 11:01 AM on February 28, 2011

In one of the most entertaining press releases I've read in a while, Croteam has announced that Serious Sam 3: BFE is due to arrive for consoles and the PC this summer. The release promises a return to the action-packed gameplay of the original, calling BFE a "a glorious throwback to the golden age of first-person shooters where men were men, cover was for amateurs and pulling the trigger made things go boom." Gamers will purportedly be able to gun down hordes of enemies in massive outdoor environments, making BFE quite a bit different than the average modern shooter.

Co-op was a big part of what make the original Serious Sam games so much fun, and BFE looks to have even more potential on that front. A total of 16 players will be able to slog through the game's campaign mode. Deathmatch and other multiplayer modes have also been thrown in for good measure.

 

Based on the screenshots that Croteam has released, BFE is a looker, too. The art style has plenty of flavor from the original plus fancy lighting, depth-of-field effects, and enemies with what appear to be pretty high polygon counts. If the enemies look that good when a dozen of 'em are rushing, I'll be very impressed indeed—and probably mildly addicted. Thanks to Rock, Paper, Shotgun for the tip.
