A month after it began counting down to the release of Serious Sam 4, Croteam has released a story trailer that explains why you’ll be blowing away hundreds of aliens. Humanity is beaten and our civilization is no more. If you believe the wrinkly alien spouting anti-human propaganda that is. Sam and co. aren’t buying it.
In Serious Sam 4, you’ll reprise your role as Sam “Serious” Stone, leader of the Earth Defense Force, and the last resistance of humanity. You’ll be joined by your squad of misfit commandos as you slaughter aliens and fight for the survival of the human race. You’re also looking for the Ark of the Covenant, which, it turns out, is an alien artifact.
More Sam, more serious
According to publisher Devolver Digital, the latest installment in the Serious Sam series will scale up the chaos to unprecedented levels. There are endless hordes of aliens to fight. Fortunately, you’ve got a near-endless, unstoppable arsenal of weaponry at your disposal.
You’ll be running in circles and backpedaling like your life depends on it. Which it most certainly does. All the while, you’ll be unleashing weapons of mass alien destruction. It’s an impossible situation, but somebody’s got to do it. As you can see from the Serious Sam 4 story trailer, you’ll battle monstrosities of all shapes and sizes, including the classic Beheaded Kamikazes.
There’s plenty of slaughtering to go around
You can play the action-packed Serious Sam 4 campaign in online co-op mode with up to four players. You can also modify the difficulty level of the primary missions and side quests for an even tougher challenge.
Serious Sam 4 is releasing on Steam and Stadia on September 24. If you preorder the game, you will be rewarded with a Classic Tommy Gun weapon skin. There’s also a Digital Deluxe Edition that includes a digital artobook and digital soundtrack. You can also check out the system requirements for Serious Sam 4 here.
