Serious Sam 3 Gets a Release Date and a Serious - UPDATED

Serious Sam 3: BFE has a release date, a collector's edition and a brand-new gameplay trailer proving beyond any doubt that this game is serious.

The modern setting and iron sights seen in previous Serious Sam 3: BFE gameplay videos led to some whispers of concern among fans that the game would not be true to the legend of "Serious" Sam Stone, and that it would instead pander to the needs of the modern shooter crowd with things like regenerating health and reasonable pacing.

I think it's safe to say that is no longer a concern.

The game also finally has a release date and a ten percent discount for anyone who preorders on Steam, plus another ten percent off for anyone who already owns a Serious Sam title on Steam. And for those who don't, it's a good time to pick them up, as all Serious Sam HD releases on Steam will be available for 66 percent off once Serious Sam 3 preorders begin, and 85 percent for anyone who preorders the new game at the same time.

A Digital Serious Edition of Serious Sam 3 is also up for grabs, which will include:

  • Serious Sam: First and Second Encounter Classic, giftable if already owned
  • Exclusive Making-Of Serious Sam 3: BFE Video
  • Exclusive Gold Fork Parker and Gold Serious Sam Multiplayer Characters
  • Timed Exclusive Brett Sanderson Headless Kamikaze Multiplayer Character
  • Timed Exclusive DLC: Sniper Scope for AS-24 "Devastator" Weapon
  • Complete Collection of High-Res Serious Sam 3: BFE Trailers and Game Videos
  • Official Sound Track Composed by Damjan Mravunac and Undercode
  • Digital Artbook, High-Res Posters and Box Art

"I pledge to take one dollar from each Serious Sam 3: BFE preorder and put it towards my wife's outrageously expensive tit job," said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker. "So get to preordering, nerds, I want these babies to block out the sun when I'm done with them."

Serious Sam 3: BFE comes out for the PC on October 18.

UPDATE: The Serious Sam deals and preorder offer were delayed a bit for reasons unknown but have now finally gone live. Set your wallets to "empty" at Steam's Serious Sam HD Sale!

Hm. Nice. Certainly better than the gameplay footage I've seen so far.

Also, maybe people will finally shut up with the, "Oh no, they CoDified Sam!" I don't even like the SS games, and it still gets on my nerves.

First I've really looked into this game. It looks like an absolute blast...buuuut considering it's a PC exclusive I'll probably give it a pass. Nothing against PC gaming, it's just that my comp would probably implode from trying to run that.

It looks seriously awesome and I watched the headless kamikaze video too it was great, wish my PC could run it but it barely runs Doom 1 so I seriously doubt it.

It's all nice, but it still looks too fucking GREY for a SS title. Indeed more like Battlefield.

Also, digital 'goodies' in a digital 'special edition'? Fuck you. I want a proper special edition in a steelbox with little statues of the Mental creatures. Especially the one-eyed dude, forgot its name.

Man I just jizzed my pants.

The only grey is from the little town, the rest of the desert is quite colorfull, the other levels will probably have a lot of color.

I like the description on Steam.

NO COVER. REAL MAN.

If only the prices weren't Draconian on Steam....

I think I Just came.... I need to change my pants now and Im gonna be order the fuck out of this

Well I recently finished SS-HD and this doesn't look that much newer, sure they added quick time events and moar gray/brown ... but we need some improvements.

I'll still buy it, just sayin it needs to step it up a notch or two

But how do you go about improving balls to the wall fun?

No cover, all man? You mean no cover system? IT'S A THING OF BEAUTY!

Now I have greater incentive to fix up my gaming PC.

What Duke Nukem forever should have been IMO.

The one thing I hated about SS is the annoying constant screams of the kamikaze.

YEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSS, please sell well please and show developers that we don't some tactical shooter we want over the top action, weapons and monsters and the ability to carry all the guns we want.

I now have to explain what the scream was for and get my pre-order in.

EHKOS:

I feared that sound more then anything in the game

Definite buy for me, but I have no idea when I'll find time to play it with all the other awesome releases this season!

I seriously love that Fork Parker! He's clinically insane in so many ways and he's seriously not shy about it! I want a collection of quotes by him for the serious edition, seriously!
The game seriously looks nice, but I already have the first 2 and don't have the time for this, so I'll seriously not be picking it up.

Oh, and I love that the game has a release date, but the full name isn't ever revealed, seriously, what's up with that? I seriously doubt it's gonna be anything other than before first encounter, but they haven't confirmed anything.

That eye-ripping thing is cool and all, but I reckon the time delay could seriously screw you over when you're being attacked en masse (i.e. all the fricking time).

Did anyone else get put off by the music in the trailer and started thinking of Epic Meal Time?

"exclusively for the PC"

Well... shit. :/

Serious Sam trailer with the Epic Meal Time music.

Can't be more manly than this.

Indeed we will.

I've never played a Serious Sam game but I might just preorder it, simply because of this quote. This man has a goal and I want to help out!

Ah, the days of Serious Sam as a child.....well, a sixteen year old when I first played the one that came out on the first Xbox (Our PC at the time was good for only running Lemmings and Incredible Machine 3). I loved the screaming, running, exploding guys. And now they're back! This game looks like what Duke Nukem could have been had 3D Realms released the fucker a decade ago!

Zhukov:

I was surprised they did that in the first place.

Andy Chalk:

Serious Sam 3: BFE comes out on October 18, exclusively for the PC.

And yet it would seem everywhere else it's being said it's coming out on all platforms. So unless you mean the Steam version is only on PC....

So um... Like Duke Nukem Forever and Bulletstorm with less than half of the production time?

Sign me up. I'll look into it.

Andy Chalk:
Serious Sam 3: BFE comes out on October 18, exclusively for the PC.

Erm... no? It's being released first for the PC, then for consoles. They even said so in interviews.

Well, I can't keep a man from his monster tits. Preorder.

CoD is better

That statement and the gameplay shown, show the sort of humour Duke Nukem once had.
The sort Gearbox failed so hard to get right...

Seriously considdering playing this.

Was anyone else thinking about "adding more bacon strips" while watching this video?

SteelStallion:

Haha, yeah. With the music in the background for some reason I kept imagining some dude whispering "and more bacon strips" in my ear.

Anyway, the trailer looks good, a lot better than the gameplay I saw recently which looked downright terrible (that may or may not be the direct result of the guy playing being a pussified little bitch). I hope it has some serious oldschool multiplayer that is actually home to a good number of players, you can only go on a rampage with the Famas so many times in MW2 before it gets boring. I am itching to get back to old school shooters. I hope this one lets me.

Yo, Duke?

THIS is what you should have been.

God. That must be the best quote from any CFO ever.

... pre-ordered purely for that light-whip-gun-thing. WTF! :D
