If you’re a fan of the Serious Sam franchise then you’ll be glad to hear Croteam and Devolver Digital have released a bumper amount of content for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. The developers have launched Serious Sam VR: The Second Encounter as well as bringing Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter out of Steam Early Access.
Serious Sam VR: The Second Encounter brings the same frantic gameplay as its predecessors, arming players to the teeth with an array of outrageous weaponry to take on the armies of god-like being Mental. To aid in the fight Sam has some new toys: Sniper Rifle, Flamethrower and Chainsaw, which can all be dual wielded for ultimate stopping power. Players can utilise their favourite combinations, or head into battle with the same guns if they prefer.
Alongside the single-player carnage, there’s now 16-player versus multiplayer modes, some are unique whilst others are based on campaign levels. On top of that there’s classic co-op action in a 12-level campaign mode featuring multiple difficulty settings, increased enemy strength, friendly fire/infinite ammo options.
The multiplayer modes include: Beast Hunt and Team Beast Hunt; Survival and Team Survival; Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch; My Burden; Last Man Standing and Last Team Standing; Capture the Flag and Instant Kill.
