Serious Sam 4 official artwork without logo

[Update #2]: Serious Sam 4 has now exploded its way onto PC and Google Stadia.

[Update]: Serious Sam 4 has now been delayed and will be launching in September, 2020

Serious Sam 4 will be heading over to Steam and Google Stadia at some point this August, with the console versions set to arrive in early 2021. You can expect to see a whole host of enemies charging at you while screaming at the top of their lungs, a variety of high-powered weapons that you can fire without ever worrying about reloading, and naturally, a four-player co-op campaign to maximize the chaos.

If you're curious what this looks like in gameplay terms, as well as how Serious Sam 4 might differ from its predecessor, allow me to share with you the newly posted gameplay preview. Have a looksie:

To be perfectly honest, I'm a little bit disappointed. If you had told me this was an expansion for Serious Sam 3, just a few extra maps to roam around in and hold down the fire button, I would believe you without even a single moment of hesitation. I can only hope Croteam is playing it a bit coy right now and holding back a lot of the new stuff, because as it stands, I'm feeling far more eager to boot up Serious Sam 2 again.

Whether you share my concerns or not, you can learn more about Serious Sam 4, as well as follow its progress moving forward, by backpedalling over to Steam.
