Croteam revealed today that the Serious Sam 3: BFE will not make its October release date. They've pushed back the PC shooter's launch to November 22nd.
"Serious Sam 3: BFE is the next evolution in our beloved franchise and the team wants to take a little extra time to make it perfect for Serious Sam fans worldwide,” said Croteam's Davor Hunski. "The game is playing wonderfully and looks great so we are going through to balance the difficulty and fine tune the code to eliminate any technical issues at launch. And we’ll probably add some more enemies to the hordes to blow your mind."
SS3 is a prequel to the previous games in the series. All you really need to know about the story, though, is that you'll be killing a lot of aliens. You can fight alongside 15 other players in the game's online co-op mode. Competitive multiplayer is also included, with modes like Capture the Flag and Deathmatch.
If you plan on picking up the game, note that there are a few incentives for pre-ordering. Steam will give you a 10% discount on pre-orders, and bump it up to 20% if you already own a different SS title on the service. Reserving a copy will also get you a timed exclusive multiplayer avatar of Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker.
"Looks like the wife is going to have to wait on pumping up the milk pillows until I’m rolling in that filthy Serious Sam 3: BFE cash money," said Parker of the delay. "Nobody likes a half-assed titjob. Nobody."
SS3 is available in two editions: the $39.99 standard edition, and a $49.99 Serious Deluxe Edition. Here's what's included in the Serious Deluxe package:
