Official trailer. coming august plus short gameplay.

I didnot liked any previous games in series despite tried all of them and especially worst was 3 but this game surprised me that it actually looks cool. looks like they improved alot since previous.

Its no Doom Eternal but looking good. keep it up.

We need more Serious Sam and we need more Painkiller.

Seems like Google bought this for Stadia exclusivity.

So no console release until 2021

The old games were decent at best for the time, but SS4 just looks like shit. Flat and boring levels with a shitload of enemies coming at you is not very exciting.

I remember playing the first game from a demo disc back in 2001. Their graphics engine impressed me, gun play, location, and hordes of interesting enemies. Bought that bad boy shortly after.

For real. It might not be the game we want, but it's the game we need; shit that doesn't take itself so seriously.

Serious Sam--and I say this as a good thing--is one of the best "dumb" games out there.

I had a really good time playing SS3 in local co-op.

I'll check the gameplay when I have a chance this afternoon

Serious Sam 2 was rated PC game of the year. I cannot picture that happening today.

Agreed, in an average FPS you are gunning down hundreds of foes. It should be silly!

Nah, these games should stick to the basics, that's what they are good at.

They are about facing larger and larger threats and being armed to the teeth with more and more over the top weapons.

Modern FPS like DOOM: Eternal add in needless stuff like platforming to spice up the gameplay between encounters. I don't think that's really necessary.

I much prefer the new Doom games. I like to explore levels and the traversal is fun. Also, verticality in level design makes things a lot more interesting. Having objects and corners to hide behind is fun too. Big open and flat areas with large hordes of enemies is not that fun for me. I am not a big fan of horde shooters. I find them tedious.

After Doom Eternal it would be very difficult to enjoy a game like this

of course Doom and Doom Eternal are better. there is no deny. have far more variety and not just wave shooter and AI only running at you.

Fair enough, DOOM level design is far more interesting for sure.

AI looks as broken and brainless as in the original.

I cannot bring myself to get into Serious Sam at all, so not even excited for Serious Sam 4.
