Serious Sam 3: BFE PC launch trailer launches, seriously

Today isn't Tuesday; it's rip-out-a-gnaar-eye-slaughter-Scrapjacks-and-save-the-world-from-Mental's-forces-day. At least, that's what we can gather from Croteam hot-off-the-interwebs launch trailer for the PC version of Serious Sam 3: BFE.

Serious Sam 3: BFE is the prequel to Croteam's Serious Sam: The First Encounter, which kicked off the less-than-serious FPS series back in 2001. In it, players are whisked away to modern day Egypt where the nefarious nemesis Mental has launched an attack on Earth, forcing the Duke Nukem-esque hero Sam to take up arms and blast away for all of mankind.

On top of the “no cover, all man” single player campaign, the game will sport 4-player split screen and 16-player co-op missions. Still no word on what BFE stands for, so for now we'll go “Bloody Friggin' Eyeballs”.

Serious Sam 3 is now available on Steam. Console versions for PS3 and Xbox 360 are also in development.

    Serious Sam: BMA (Before Mocap Animation) is more like it. Seriously (pun VERY much intended), I hope that gets fixed - even Duke had it better. Other than that though, the gameplay looks to be holding true to the other games.

    BFE= Battle For Earth And I would have to dissagre about the comparison to duke nukem. Despite Serious Sam’s silliness I would have to disagree, Duke Nukem is far to ethically unbecoming to be compared to about anybody.

    BFE= Before First Encounter

    "want to spend time rendering realistic eyes?" "Na, It's Egypt. Give everyone sunglasses."

    Look at the Gnaar eyes, I'd say they're pretty well done.

    I only got to look for a couple seconds before I ripped it out and threw it half way across Egypt.

    At least some civilians got a meal for the night.
