Croteam's Serious Sam 3, the third in a series of game so serious that you can't take them seriously at all, has been revealed. Serious Sam 3 is slated to be released this summer for PC, with other platforms following. IGN had an exclusive interview with Croteam CEO Roman Ribaric, who provided plenty of inside information on the highly anticipated shooter. Here I've highlighted some of the more important tidbits from that interview.

First, Ribaric gave the scoop on the background of Serious Sam 3:

Quote
"Serious Sam 3: BFE covers the events that happened on Earth, at the peak of Mental's invasion, and that lead into Sam entering the Timelock you see in the original games. This time around, the story is much more integrated into the game - i.e the progression across levels, equipment and enemies is more tied to story and character interactions. But we took special care to make sure the story and cut-scenes don't get in your way when playing. Especially when re-playing the game for 100th time. Fun adrenaline-filled action gameplay and freedom in playing are our primary goals. Fear not - we will not allow Sam to become a FMV-based rail shooter. "


And then the gameplay:

Quote
"The basic idea still is that you have to eliminate Mental's hordes very fast while frantically trying to stay alive. And there's spawning - wherever it is required to achieve fun action gameplay. But we have diversified the way fights develop, by using much more different layouts and giving the player ability to explore the areas in different ways. But this is something that is best experienced when playing. "


The good news is, melee is going to be available, chiefly with the good ol' sledgehammer, along with various other weapons:

Quote
"We've really let this idea of melee combat spread out a bit this time. Besides using just the hammer or bare hands and feet, there are various specific moves that can be done depending on the current weapon, the targeted enemy and some other factors. Then there is the Mutilator... There are now more variations on how to finish out a particular type of Mental's minions than ever before. "


The Serious Sam series are done in the style of old school shooters like the original Doom, which is unique nowadays since most FPSes now copy the "duck-and-cover, no-health-bar/wait until the screen stops turning red" formula from Call of Duty. When IGN asked about whether or not similar gaming conventions will be introduced to the third game, Ribaric responded with,

Quote
"Cover system??? Regenerating health??? You can't be Serious!"


So, I'd say it's safe to assume that Serious Sam 3 will be left untainted.

Oh, and for those of you itching to know if there's a multiplayer mode. The answer is a resounding yes. Serious Sam 3 is going to have 16 player co-op modes, with campaign levels built for different co-op modes such as Classic Co-op, Coin-op, or Beast Hunt.

Here's a look at the trailer for Serious Sam:
