Serious Sam fans have a lot to be happy about with a double dose of Sam action coming to XBLA this Autumn.
Croteam and Mommy’s Best Games, in partnership with Devolver Digital and Mastertronic, have announced both Serious Sam 3: BFE and the retooled Serious Sam Double D XXL will launch on Xbox LIVE Arcade this fall.
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 cooperative mode on top of the fantastic action from last year’s the indie PC hit.
“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!”
On top of the original 18 campaign levels and 12 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 hot new two-player local cooperative mode.
“Xbox LIVE Arcade gamers are going to get so much insane Serious Sam action this summer it’s going to make their televisions bleed,” claimed Fork Parker, CFO of Devolver Digital, co-publisher of Serious Sam 3: BFE and Serious Sam Double D XXL. “Call the paramedics, homey. Your flat screen TV just took another headshot from Serious Sam.”
