A new gameplay trailer for Serious Sam 4 has dropped showing Sam going up against hordes of monsters with some very big guns. It seems like similar fare to the previous Serious Sam titles and I’m sure you will know what to expect. It was in 2018 that the game was revealed as Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass but it seems the Planet Badass moniker has been dropped by Croteam to keep the title more simplified.
Croteam announced the game’s key features including the Legion system that can generate thousands of enemies on the field. That’s a lot of shooting to do. The key features are listed below.
- HORDES OF INVADERS – The iconic cast of alien invaders returns with some new reinforcements! Fight your way through unbelievable numbers of Mental’s minions, including the iconic Headless Kamikaze, Beheaded Rocketeer, Kleer, Scrapjack, Werebull, and Khnum! Square off against brand new enemies and towering monsters like the frantic Processed, repulsive Belcher, the hard-hitting Zealot, and more.
- EXPLOSIVE ARSENAL – Armed with a slew of devastating weapons, pick your tool for any situation. Lay waste to Mental’s Horde using the powerful double-barreled shotgun, the punishing minigun, the powerful chainsaw launcher, a brand new auto shotgun, and the iconic cannon. Upgrade your toys, and enjoy the violent beauty of the lock-on rocket launcher, and the mighty laser beam of death.
- COOPERATIVE MAYHEM – Smash through the action-packed campaign with friends in 4-player online co-op mode! Tackle exciting primary missions and thrilling side quests in modified difficulties for an extra challenge.
- LEGION SYSTEM – Serious Sam 4 unleashes some of the biggest moments in the series’ history with the new Legion System and battlefields teeming with thousands of enemies!
Serious Sam 4 will be released on PC and Stadia at some point in August. It is currently up for pre-order at £30.99 on Steam for the standard edition. The Deluxe Edition is £39.99 and that includes the digital soundtrack and a classic Tommy Gun weapon skin.
