At first there was Serious Sam: The Last Hope, a VR shooting gallery that was a perfect fit for Croteam’s signature hero. While experimenting with VR Croteam found that it adapted well to the regular games, so retooled Serious Sam: The First Encounter to play nicely in a headset. That did well enough to lead to The Second Encounter getting a VR conversion, then a quick detour to the puzzles of The Talos Principle, and finally today is the release of the latest game in the series, Serious Sam 3 VR: BFE. Like the previous Serious Sam games it makes up for VR’s issues with mobility by giving you a weapon per hand, allowing you to either keep one hand for crowd control and another for spray & pray, or just dual-wield rocket launchers to turn everything in your path into an extra-chunky shower of gibs. Check out the trailer below to see the carnage in action, and note that the player has the iron stomach to do free movement in VR.
This does, of course, leaves one last question- With the VR conversions all sorted out, is it almost Serious Sam 4 time yet?
