If you’re a fan of Croteam’s over-the-top shooter series Serious Sam then you’ve got plenty of titles to choose from when it comes to virtual reality (VR) editions. Today, the studio has announced the latest edition Serious Sam 3 VR: BFE for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.

Serious Sam 3 VR: BFE serves as the prequel to Serious Sam: The First Encounter, taking place during a final struggle against arch nemesis Mental’s invading forces. Redesigned for VR, the videogame features full room-scale support, multiple locomotion settings including: teleport, instant teleport, blink teleport, or smooth movement, with or without comfort mode (snap rotation), to suit every VR player. Additionally, Serious Sam 3 VR: BFE also includes Croteam’s advanced VR controls for experienced VR gamers.

Plus there’s Serious Sam Fusion 2017 integration, which means VR evangelists and keyboard/mouse diehards with the regular version of Serious Sam 3: BFE can have cross-play multiplayer showdowns
