Croteam have revealed the release date for Serious Sam 3: BFE. It shall be with us on the 18th October, and you can pre-order it
now soon on Steam, GetGames, and so on. Should you? Well, take a look at the new in-game trailer below to get an idea.
RPS Feature We've played with Sam
I can still hear the screaming headless kamikaze. That’s not a twee little aphorism. Despite the fact that I’m no longer playing the game, I can still hear the incessant roaring scream of the droves and droves of bomb-wielding suicidal maniacs charging toward me, somewhere inside my brain. I hope it goes away soon, because this would be no way to live.
Rock, Paper, Shotgun is the first place in the world to have been given a few levels of Serious Sam 3: BFE to play with, and I’ve now killed and been killed within them an awful lot. Let me tell you all about it.
The fans, they demanded of Croteam that Serious Sam 3: BFE feature four-player splitscreen play. And so it came to pass. RPS can exclusively reveal that the forthcoming ultro-shooter will allow you to gather around a PC monitor with your chums and FIGHT. Up to three gamepads can be used alongside one mouse and keyboard to have four-player multiplayer and co-op. You can see full-size screens below.
Some astonishing controversy from Friday that escaped our gaze – Devolver Digital, they publishing Serious Sam 3: BFE, have announced that they’ve scrapped their planned proprietary digital distribution service, Krundle, and instead are opting to use Steam. And not Origin. The press release, containing their reasoning and what could have been (including features such as “Free-to-Play-for-Fifty-Bucks games wherein the consumer is free to play the game once it is purchased for $50″, and velvet-covered jet skis), is below.
RPS Feature Words cannot describe a pink robot wearing lipstick
As you already know so well, the forthcoming release of Serious Sam 3: BFE is being accompanied by some specially commissioned indie games based on the Sam license. Already out is the demo for Kamikaze Attack, and coming soon is Serious Sam Double D. We have ourselves an almost-finished copy of that game, so I’m going to describe the first couple of stages to you in things called words and pictures.
A rather silly email appears alerting us to the shock news that Croteam’s Lead In-Game Wall Graffiti Artist, Davor Kovač, has quit the company midway through the development of Serious Sam 3: BFE, “to pursue his dream of being quoted in a rushed press release”. So now the team are asking players to come up with the nonsense that will appear on the game’s walls.
RPS Feature AAAAAAAARRRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH
Here’s something you’re seeing here first. A new trailer for Serious Sam 3 BFE, following the life of one of the game’s many headless kamikazes. Because that’s the correct way to trail an old-school shooter – a documentary about a headless man with bombs for hands. We’re all agreed on that. So head below to take a world exclusive peek at the new video.

One of the most refreshing moments of this year’s E3 was a trip out of the noisy, smelly Convention Center to a nearby hotel, to sit down and play Serious Sam 3. Refreshing to be away from the noise, but also to just be sat playing a game (on PC, no less) that’s so focused on being a game.
