Croteam has a rather lengthy article which shares several major news.
Serious Sam VR “Shanti” Update
They announced a “Shanti” update to Serious Sam VR, which is already finished. It will include the new planet “Shanti”, new weapons, new feature (Sam’s personal shield) and a scary new boss.
Serious Sam VR: The Second Encounter & Serious Sam VR 3: BFE Announced
In addition, they have announced that they are also converting the second and third Serious Sam games to VR. In case you are confused, here are the Serious Sam VR titles:
- Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope (original VR title, released)
- Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter (VR version of the first episode of the first Serious Sam game, released)
- Serious Sam VR: The Second Encounter (VR version of the second episode of the first Serious Sam game, upcoming)
- Serious Sam VR BFE (VR version of the third Serious Sam game, upcoming)
Talos Principle VR Announced
In addition, they have also announced that Talos Principle VR is happening as well.
Serious Sam 4 & Serious Sam Fusion 2017
Serious Sam 4 is still in the work as well, and also Serious Sam Fusion 2017 update, which will allow the players in both flat screen HD version and VR version of Serious Sam: The First Encounter, Serious Sam: The Second Encounter and Serious Sam: The BFE to play together.
Considering that the flat screen version of these titles are available on PC, its safe to assume the VR version will be compatible with Vive and Rift.
Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope “Shanti” update is now finished and will become available right after internal testing. The update will include the new planet (Shanti), new weapons (one melee and one long ranged weapon), new feature (Sam’s personal shield) and a very scary new boss. Boo!
Yes, there will be SSVR: The Second Encounter and Serious Sam 3 VR: BFE!
Yes, there will be The Talos Principle VR!
Yes, Serious Sam 4 is still happening and our core team remains hard at work on this, while two much smaller VR teams will continue to grow and work on more VR projects.
No, we haven’t forgotten our “flat” games. We’re announcing Serious Sam Fusion 2017, a FREE update for all owners of Serious Sam games, both flat and VR versions. This update will be rolled out gradually, starting with The First Encounter, and then The Second Encounter and Serious Sam 3: BFE.
Serious Sam Fusion 2017 update will bring a common workshop for cross-game mods support, as well as enable multiplayer between “flat” and VR versions of games, among other things. So, if you have Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter and your friend has The First Encounter HD, you can connect and play coop or versus with one another – using Fusion 2017.
