Serious Sam 3: BFE Delayed

Serious Sam 3: BFE Delayed


Today, the boys over at Croteam made a semi-unfortunate announcement; Serious Sam 3: BFE, which is actually a prequel to Serious Sam 1, will be delayed until November 22nd. The game was originally scheduled for release on October 18th, but the developer has decided to fine-tune a few things before fans can get their sticky little fingers on it.

“Serious Sam 3: BFE is the next evolution in our beloved franchise and the team wants to take a little extra time to make it perfect for Serious Sam fans worldwide,” said Davor Hunski, Chief Creative Guy at Croteam. “The game is playing wonderfully and looks great so we are going through to balance the difficulty and fine tune the code to eliminate any technical issues at launch. And we’ll probably add some more enemies to the hordes to blow your mind.”

But before Serious Sam fans even had a chance to drown their sorrows in delicious whiskey, Croteam announced a few Serious Sam-related deals that might help ease the pain:

  • A serious 10% discount off of Serious Sam 3: BFE preorder on Steam

  • A super serious additional 10% discount off of Serious Sam 3: BFE for customers that already own a Serious Sam title on Steam.

  • Timed exclusive Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker multiplayer avatar for use in Serious Sam 3: BFE.

    I’m glad to see that the long and egotistical tradition of placing the developer’s faces into whichever game they’re working on is still alive and well.

    In the grand scheme of things, this delay is relatively minor. I mean, it’s been 6 years since Serious Sam 2 was released, but that game shouldn’t really count, since it wasn’t nearly as fun at the first two titles. So, fans haven’t seen a solid Serious Sam title since 2002.

    I can wait an extra few weeks, if it means that Serious Sam 3 might actually “blow my mind.”
