Serious Sam 4 is back, except without “Planet Badass” in its name. According to Devolver Digital and Croteam, the forthcoming first-person shooter will release this year sometime in August for PC via Steam and Stadia.
The fight against Mental’s minions rears its head once again. This means the Headless Kamikaze, Beheaded Rocketeer, Kleer, Scrapjack, Werebull, and Khnum are all back along with new enemies and towering monsters like the Processed, Belcher, Zealot, and more.
Moreover, whether you are by yourself or with friends, you can team up with three other people (to form a team of four) locally or with people around the world via online multiplayer action.
Furthermore, the story campaign features primary missions and side quests that can be modified through difficulty settings for an extra challenge — although the game is said to be really hard at its base setting.
If all of that sounds like fun, new weapons, enemies, and locations will be waiting for you, as seen below:
“Serious Sam 4 reignites the classic FPS series in a high-powered prequel loaded with an explosive arsenal, intergalactic carnage, and perfectly timed one-liners.”
