What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope was first shown outside of Croteam's studio as a pre-alpha demo at Reboot Develop 2016. It received such an overwhelmingly positive response that we decided to build a full game. It was announced at E3, and demoed at Gamescom, PAX and EGX, with everybody who tried it coming away wanting more, and wanting it soon. Like, yesterday!

So Croteam's VR team worked around the clock to bring Serious Sam VR to you as soon as possible. Early Access doesn't just give you a chance to check out the game while it's still being developed, it's also an opportunity for us at Croteam to listen to your feedback and make the best game possible.

Please bear in mind that occasional bugs are to be expected, but so are new features, tweaks and major additions to content. It's gonna be fun!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game is planned to achieve it's full potential in the next 6 months, but could be longer depending on the user feedback.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Full version is planned to have:

  • more planets with multiple locations,
  • more enemies,
  • more weapons,
  • more boss fights,
  • more power-ups,
  • shielding ability,
  • achievements,
  • introduction of player skill tree,
  • unannounced upgrades & features, depending on user feedback.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Serious Sam VR: The Last hope is playable and currently features two full planets, Earth and Pladeon, with eight different locations and two epic final boss fights. More than 10 weapons are available from the start, as are 20 different enemy types - some of them old classics (all together now: "aaaaAAAAaaaaAAAA!"), others making their monstrous debut in SSVR. Occasional bugs and crashes might still find their way into the builds, but we'll try to promptly squash them, while also continuously working on overall game performance and VR tech optimizations.

NEW since EA Lauch:
Game is now updated with Coop mode, so you can also play campaign with your friend online. Support for Oculus Touch is implemented. Also, there are two more difficulty settings (easy and serious).


Currently available Missions

Mission: Earth
Location: Monolith of Time

Location: Tomb of the Forgotten
Deep under the ancient ruins, horrors await those who stray too far. Horrors that need bullet holes.

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will remain the same during and after Early Access. All Early Access versions will automatically be updated to full versions upon release.
Please bear in mind that the price has been set to reflect the value of the final product, while Early Access provides immediate access to the game that is still under development.
Expect constant updates in form of bug fixes, tweaks, features and major additions to content.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Player feedback is important to us and the best way to get in touch is to post right here, on Steam's Discussions page. We'll be reading every post and fixing reported bugs, taking your suggestions into serious consideration and feeling sad, maybe even crying a little, if we can't fix something right away – so please be kind when posting. We might ask players to continue feedback discussions until we nail down reported issues.”

About This Game

Have you ever wondered what it's really like to be Serious Sam? Have you ever wanted to fight Mental's alien hordes with your own two hands? Well, now you can! Step into the shoes of the Earth Defense Force's greatest hero in this unique VR simulation based on Sam Stone's own log files from his time as captain of the Battlecruiser Saratoga. Experience the missions that turned Captain Stone into the legend that he is today.

Key Features at Early Access Launch:


  • Tons of enemies – Hordes of attacking enemies have always been a trademark of the Serious Sam series, and Serious Sam: The Last Hope continues to deliver countless terrors in just one scene, harnessing the serious power of the Serious Engine 4.5.
  • Tons of guns – Dual-wield miniguns, tommy guns, heavy lasers, shotguns, and an assortment of other guns. Oh, and chainsaws, too! More then 10 different weapons, including the rocket launcher, will be available from the beginning of Early Access, and Sam's lethal armory will be regularly expanded in future updates.
  • Planet-hopping action – Battle across treacherous Egyptian sands, in the pitch-dark under ancient ruins, and on the surface of Pladeon, the long-abandoned heart of a great industrial civilization. Early Access starts with two planets, each with four different locations, while more of Sam's adventures across the galaxy will become available in future updates.
  • Dick's back, too! - Featuring the voice of Serious Sam, John. J. Dick, dropping one-liners as you drop enemies.
  • Cry for Mummy – Defeat Mental's most powerful servants, starting with the Unholy Space Mummy of Gamma Pegasi, a huge, terrifying, undead monstrosity brought to life with dark magic - as dangerous as it is smelly! And that's just the first boss.
  • Hyper-immersive realism – Graphics so good that if you die in the simulation, you die in the real world!*
    *Might or might not be entirely true. But we tested it and we're pretty sure it works the other way around.

Updated Features since Early Access Launch:



  • Oculus Touch Support - Full support for Oculus Rift and Oculus Touch on SteamVR.
  • Mixed Reality Setup Wizard - https://youtu.be/c_An0vxvPnk
  • nVidia VR SLI - Full support for nVidia VR SLI.
