Croteam’s Serious Sam 3: BFE is a glorious throwback to the golden age of first-person shooters where men were men, cover was for amateurs and pulling the trigger made things go boom. Serving as a prequel to the original indie sensation, Serious Sam: The First Encounter, Serious Sam 3: BFE takes place during the Earth’s final struggle against Mental’s invading legions of beasts and mercenaries. Set against the collapsing temples of an ancient civilization and the crumbling cities of 22nd century Egypt, Serious Sam 3: BFE is an exhilarating fusion of classic twitch shooters and modern gameplay features. - Shamelessly stolen from the RPS interview (see below for full text.)

Get your hype machine in gear, because Serious Sam 3 is finally on the way! So, what does "BFE" stand for? Battle For Earth? Butt Fuck Egypt? Big Fucking Epic? Nobody knows!

Roman Ribaric the CEO of Croteam has announced the following on their page:
http://www.croteam.com/
"Just a quick note to let all Serious Sam fans know that Serious Sam 3: BFE is coming this summer 2011."

Some quotes from Devolver Digital who are publishing the game and also developed the HD versions:
http://twitter.com/devolverdigital

"You won't be disappointed! Serious Sam 3 is a throwback to glory!"
"You know what horde/firefight mode is called in Serious Sam 3? It's called Serious Sam 3. Boom!"
"Next week is going to be a big week."

The new Fusion DLC is out for Serious Sam: First Encounter HD and Second Encounter HD. It's free and automatically downloads if you own both games on Steam. It basically adds all of the FE content into SE. You now only need to install SE and have everything from FE available:

I think some 16 player coop may be in order to test it out for the sake of science!

So, is SS3:BFE going to be better than Serious Sam 2 and fill our hunger for chaos, carnage, and millions of spent shell casings? Discuss!

    But... Serious Sam was already on Earth. Twice. Two out of the three games. First Encounter was Egypt, Second Encounter was either Central or South America.

    Looking forward to this so much, though. SS2 was kind of a let down and the overly cartoony everything was a put off, but it was still funny and still let me kill lots of guys with big guns. From the pics that have been circulating it looks like SS3 is going "realistic" in it's aesthetics, but it seems to be over compensating for the cartoony visuals of SS2. They needa find a sweet spot in the middle, like the original game (which probably only looked that way because that was current level graphics at the time).

    Hoping to see the return of the double barrel shotgun and the kleers. My desire for obliterating kleers will never be truly satisfied until SS3 comes out.

    Also hoping it will see a retail release and is a full, lengthy, proper game. I only say this because the Painkiller series unfortunately descended into poop and has gotten to the point where they're releasing $5 download-only additions to the series.

    We don't even care... whether we care or not...

    Probably something like Battlefield Earth. Maybe Croteam went scientologist in the intervening years.

    Edit: And this should be in every Serious Sam thread ever.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YD0yeuuOrY&feature=fvw

    I wonder how many krundles SS3 is going to use. I mean, I can't even begin to understand their advanced algorithm advantages, but I bet SS3 is just gonna be swimming in pol-i-gons.

    Oh yeah, for some reason I was thinking SS happened off-world. I should know better considering how many times I've played through them all. I'll edit the OP. <img class=" title=":lol:" class="bbcode_smiley" />

    Serious Sam 2 was actually pretty fun with the Insamnity 2 mod; Reinstated the old enemies, akimbo weapons, and you could increase spawns by like 16x. Definitely recaptured that SSFE/SE feel.

    Oh, Oh my. This looks fantastic. I remember some good 8 player coop (even though it can go up to 16!) and it was pure insanity. Also, trying to grab powerups from friends is always fun. Griefing, why I never!

    BFE = Butt Fuck Egypt, at least here in Texas.

    Considering where SS3 takes place, I wouldn't be surprised if that's the acronym.

    Rock Paper ShotGun Serious Sam 3 Interview

    TIME AND PLACE ARE SUBJECTIVE – BOOM! That was the sound of Serious Sam 3: BFE news dropping. Croteam’s Serious Sam 3: BFE is a glorious throwback to the golden age of first-person shooters where men were men, cover was for amateurs and pulling the trigger made things go boom. Serving as a prequel to the original indie sensation, Serious Sam: The First Encounter, Serious Sam 3: BFE takes place during the Earth’s final struggle against Mental’s invading legions of beasts and mercenaries. Set against the collapsing temples of an ancient civilization and the crumbling cities of 22nd century Egypt, Serious Sam 3: BFE is an exhilarating fusion of classic twitch shooters and modern gameplay features.

    “Serious Sam 3 is about pure fun and unfiltered action,” said Davor Hunski, chief creative officer of developer Croteam. “We wanted to expand on everything gamers love about the series while adding some genuinely unique new features to really enhance the mayhem Serious Sam is known for.”

    Trademark features such as relentless hordes of spectacular enemies and expansive outdoor battlefields return in Serious Sam 3: BFE at full force. Other features include:

    Frantic Arcade-Style Action – The calling card of the Serious Sam series, hold down the trigger and lay waste to a never-ending onslaught of attackers or face being overrun by Mental’s savage beasts. No cover systems, no camping – it’s just you and them. All of them.

    Mental’s Fearsome Legions – A new battalion of unforgettable minions including the rumbling Scrapjack and towering Khnum join the legendary Headless Kamikaze, Gnaar and Sirian Werebull. Your days of mowing down zombie Nazi space pirates are over.

    Serious Melee Attacks – When an enemy slips by your wall of lead and pain, use one of the all-new innovative melee moves to drop an enemy right where they stand in the most violent way possible.

    Pure Multiplayer Mayhem – Play through the full campaign mode with up to 16 players or drop the gauntlet and let the heavy ordinance fly in versus modes like Deathmatch and Beast Hunt. This is the next level of Serious Sam multiplayer and all hell is about to break loose.

    “Holy crap, I am going to make a boatload of cash of this game,” said Fork Parker, chief financial officer at Devolver Digital, the Serious Sam 3: BFE publisher. “I mean that’s what this is all about, right? If this thing comes out in the summer my wife is totally getting the tit job she’s been asking for.”

    Serious Sam 3 will bring the boom to PC and game consoles this summer.

    When asked for further comment, Fork replied, “Bam. Tit job.”

    I love Serious Sam SO MUCH. The only question in my mind is "can they redeem themselves from non-Insamnity Serious Sam 2?" I would do anything for a proper sequel to Second Encounter.

    Gnaars! God damned gnaars! Gnaars and their flying, invisible stupid eye-faces!

    I always figured they were more fur-covered than spindly-muscle. But they look excellent. Looking forward to seeing what their blood looks like flying out of them in the new engine.

    I'm not sure if there is an existing thread already. I certainly don't mind if we use this thread though.

    Look like http://serioussam.com went live. Nothing on there yet except a teaser pic:
