If anything gives me faith that Serious Sam 3: BFE will be a fun game, it's the attitude of the folks behind it. Publisher Devolver Digital has sent a press release to Rock, Paper, Shotgun detailing recently scrapped plans for yet another game download service. Dubbed Krundle, the service would have offered gamers unique features like in-game nachos and complimentary Portuguese pornography. Sweet!
Serious Sam is the new Duke Nukem, it seems. Alas, Krundle won't be the next Origin. Devolver Digital has confirmed that BFE will indeed be available on Steam. The game is already listed on the Steam store with a "summer 2011" release date, although pre-orders haven't opened yet.
In recent weeks, Crysis 2 and Dragon Age II have both disappeared from Steam. The exodus may continue as EA looks to promote its freshly minted Origin download service with exclusive content. It appears that Valve has also changed the Steam licensing terms to forbid publishers from making downloadable content exclusive to competing services.
