Whether or not you're down with Serious Sam 3: BFE's old
school FPS vibe, it's hard not to crack a smile at its tongue-in-cheek
marketing campaign. Case in point: Croteam's latest (fake) help line ad which
takes a few chuckle worthy jabs at its Gears of Modern Battlefield: Human
Effect 3 competition.
This is part one of a three-part campaign designed to subtly
remind players Serious Sam 3 is all about the running and gunning without the
modern FPS trappings.
“I’m already fielding
all sorts of calls from shooter fans wondering where all the conveniently placed
barricades and random concrete walls are in Serious Sam 3: BFE,” said Rich
Knuckles, the made up assistant supervisor at the Serious Sam 3: BFE Help Line
in today's release. “Most of these guys have gotten soft from years of
crouching behind cover, picking off one or two approaching enemies as they make
their way through missions. It’s pathetic.”
Serious Sam 3: BFE is headed to PCs on October 18th,
with console release dates still to come.
