Virtual reality (VR) gamers who like all out shooting carnage don’t have far to look for suitable titles. One of the best known is Croteam’s Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope. The studio has now announced the latest update to the video game called Valtos, set to arrive later this month for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
In a Steam posting Croteam has said: “We have started the internal testing phase of the big Valtos update coming to Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope.” The studio then goes on to detail what players can expect to see, with new planet, Valtos, being the main inclusion, featuring four locations to fight through.
That’s not all. There’s going to be three new weapons including a bow with explosive arrows, new enemies and a boss to round it all off. Croteam hasn’t gone into details on these latter additions, simple releasing a short GIF (below) and a screenshot showcasing some sword wielding skeletons, several small flying enemies, and a heavily armoured monster with hands for guns.
The update is due to arrive in a couple of weeks time on Wednesday 26th April. If you can’t wait that long then there’s always Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter and Serious Sam VR: The Second Encounter.
These both launched last week, with the former previously featuring on Steam Early Access. They feature single-player and 16-player versus multiplayer modes, with some maps being unique whilst others are based on campaign levels. If you’ve got a mate to join in there’s also classic co-op action in a 12-level campaign mode featuring multiple difficulty settings, increased enemy strength, friendly fire/infinite ammo options.
