Following the recent announcement of a US release, Croteam and Mommy’s Best Games, in partnership with Devolver Digital and Mastertronic, have confirmed that both Serious Sam 3: BFE and the retooled Serious Sam Double D XXL will launch on Xbox LIVE Arcade throughout Europe this autumn. Both titles will build upon the success of their PC debuts with the use of Xbox LIVE and other new additions.
Serious Sam 3: BFE will be delivered by series creator Croteam and feature all the fast-paced, brutal action Serious Sam fans love and take advantage of the deep online capabilities of Xbox LIVE Arcade’s online community.
“Serious Sam fans have been asking for Serious Sam 3: BFE to come to Xbox LIVE Arcade and we’re very excited to launch on the platform this fall,” said Roman Ribaric, CEO of developer Croteam. “All the high-octane action and over-the-top violence will be intact so Xbox LIVE Arcade gamers will get the full Serious Sam 3: BFE experience!”
Serious Sam Double D XXL will explode onto Xbox LIVE Arcade with all new features, missions, weapons and a wild campaign co-operative mode. On top of the original eighteen campaign levels and twelve challenge maps, Serious Sam Double D XXL is bursting forth with all-new features for Xbox LIVE Arcade like new campaign missions, new challenges, new enemies, Gunstacker upgrades, and a brand new two-player local co-operative mode.
“Our fans loved Serious Sam Double D when it launched on PC but some rightly felt that the shooting grew repetitive and the Gunstacker could use more depth,” said Nathan Fouts, founder and lead designer at developer Mommy’s Best Games. “We’ve taken all this to heart and are incorporating more gameplay variety and, of course, adding the biggest fan request-two-player co-op!”
Serious Sam fans can follow development updates and news for Serious Sam 3: BFE and Serious Sam Double D XXL throughout this summer, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on the Serious Sam videogame franchise.
