PC version of Croteam first-person shooter revival pushed back a month, still no update on Xbox 360 and PS3 release windows.
If there's one thing Serious Sam isn't so serious about, it's keeping appointments. Devolver Digital and Croteam today announced the second delay for the PC version of Serious Sam 3: BFE, pushing the game's launch back to November 22.
The PC game was originally announced as a summer release and then issued what would turn out to be an equally erroneous October 18 launch date. There is still no word on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions of the game, which were announced for summer but have not been given a new release window.
A prequel to Serious Sam: The First Encounter, BFE takes place in 22nd-century Egypt amid a collapsing civilization beset by unearthly beasts. The game sees the return of the series' signature adversaries like the Headless Kamikaze and Gnaar, as well as new opponents going by names like Scrapjack and Khnum.
Serious Sam 3's gameplay also features a number of additions, with Sam in particular getting an assortment of new melee moves. Additionally, up to 16 players at a time can play through the game's cooperative campaign mode.

Why don't they just release it on all 3 platforms instead of just one from the start, it will get more sales that way.
Serious Sam is the sh*t when it comes to pure and utter mayhem. It's ridiculouslyfun to slaughter horde after horde of ridiculous enemies with ridiculous weapons. The addition of melee moves sounds excellent. Hopefully we'll get some new weapons as well, but I would be more than happy if they just stuck with the weapons of Serious Sam: TSE.
with all the rave over military shooters its great to still have mindless fun with Serious Sam..welcome back
Serious Sam manages to be funny after all these years with the same attitude of Duke. Just less obnoxious and actually funny.
@salvucci91 Serious Sam always had 16 player coop, since 2001. Though really it's nothing special, the bosses health didn't scale with the number of players, so they went down in a matter of seconds.
16-PLAYER Co-OP?!?! Never have I even thought about looking into the Serious Sam series... UNTIL NOW !!!
They miswell as delay it further maby to after christmas and just spend even more time polihing it, as november is packed.
I bought the first game when it released, seems like ages ago. Lots of fun but I finished it in 4 hours which was kinda of a bummer. Then I played number 2 in co-op but it got stale about half way through. Also, bit too colorful graphics. I'm liking the fact that the third game will retain the first ones looks. I hope they add some guns because this is pretty much the same formula they released 10 years ago.
Doesn't seem like the wisest of decisions. If I'm forced to look at it from a business stand point, they were going to either have to stick with their original release date somehow, or push it back even further than this. As of now, it's going to be released right smack in the middle of many triple A titles.
I am sincerely expecting this to be my favorite game EVER. I can wait another month for such greatness.
Can't wait for this, one of the most fun FPS's I've ever played. Preferred the 1st game to the 2nd, the 2nd game was too kiddy but this looks close to the 1st.
Curious to know if the game can stand up against other FPS's today. It does look like it could be fun, but it also looks like it could end up the way of DNF. I guess I should just be thankful that this isn't another modern combat FPS like so many of them today. Still, as much of a fan of SS as I am, the second game was awful, so I'll have to wait and see on this one.
You guys wait and this will price drop, fast. I will be buying then. To many damn games coming out. No time.
I usually like to buy my games for xbox, but this (and Unreal Tournament) are some of the games that are a must buy for any pc gamer :)
No problem,as long as I know the game isnt delayed because of console marketing crap,I dont mind waiting.Its nice Croteam shows some support to the PC community by making the game PC orriented.Also,since they are the only good studio in Croatia,I will gladly support them.
