Serious Sam 3 will be hitting store shelves this coming Summer, reports publisher Devolver Digital, which is also describing the game as a "glorious throwback to the golden age of first-person shooters where men were men, cover was for amateurs and pulling the trigger made things go boom".
In fact, Croteam is wallowing in the game's retro-ness, bragging, "It's just you and them. All of them."
That's not to say the game isn't adding some new features. There are new melee attacks, a 16-player campaign and versus modes, including Deathmatch and Beast Hunt. Enemies include Scrapjack, the huge Khnum, the signature screaming Headless Kamikazes with bombs for hands, Gnaar and Sirian Werebull.
"Serious Sam 3 is about pure fun and unfiltered action," Croteam creative boss Davor Hunski said. "We wanted to expand on everything gamers love about the series while adding some genuinely unique new features to really enhance the mayhem Serious Sam is known for."
Serious Sam 3 takes place during Earth's struggle against Mental's invading legions. There are collapsing temples, ancient civilisations and crumbling 22nd century Egyptian cities.
