Serious Sam: The First Encounter HD Summary
Croteam have announced that a "fan-led project" for Serious Sam has just arrived on Steam Early Access where the first two Serious Sam games have been reworked into this "unified version" under Croteam's supervision.
The First Encounter and The Second Encounter are squished together with updated tech, new gameplay modes, new levels, and fan-favourite mods, weapons and maps.
Mastertronic has announced that it'll be releasing The Serious Sam Collection in retail on the 12th July. The bundle includes Serious Sam: The First Encounter, Serious Sam: The Second Encounter, Serious Sam: BFE (plus the Jewel of the Nile DLC pack), and Serious Sam: Double D XXL.
Croteam is developing Serious Sam 4, which was in-part funded by the current Humble Bundle sale, which has so far raised $181,000 USD.
Croteam has announced that "Serious Santa" is bringing discounts to the Serious Sam games on Xbox Live Marketplace. Serious Sam 3: BFE, the Serious Sam 3: Jewel of the Nile DLC pack, and both Serious Sam HD: The First and Second Encounters will be 50% off for the holiday season at 600 Microsoft Points.
Publisher Mastertronic have also announced that Croteam's Serious Sam HD First & Second Encounter will be retailing boxed copies for Xbox 360.
The First & Second Encounter titles, remade in HD, will be releasing exclusively for Xbox 360 in shops this March 4th. They want to tap the 14m European Xboxes.
