Featured Mod – Red Day: Episode One



Hey everyone! Check out this epic Serious Sam Fusion mod – Red Day: Episode One. It's a custom campaign mod telling a story about Sam's war against the Mental forces in Russia.

The highlight of this Serious Sam Fusion mod is a three-part, 50-minute long campaign set in a typical Russian provincial city Muhogradsk. The Red Day campaign is full of chaos and crazy arena-style action spaning over three custom levels, with cutscenes and everything you'd expect from a full-blown campaign. Oh, and there's a brand new soundtrack, as well so make sure you check it out on Steam and let us know what you think.

Massive thanks to the powerful Dead_Kadath for making this mod happen.

NOTE: To play the mod you'll need to own SSHD: The First Encounter, SSHD: The Second Encounter, Legend of the Beast, SS3: BFE and SS3: BFE Jewel of the Nile.

Our community has always been big on modifying Serious Sam and The Talos Principle to their liking, so we thought it's long overdue giving them mad props for all the creative work they do. This is why we have decided to periodically feature some of those mods on our channels and get more people in on the action.

Are you making Serious Sam or The Talos Principle mods yourself? Let us know, we'd love to check them out.

For all things Serious Sam hit Mr. Stone up on Twitter and Facebook. Follow Croteam on Twitter and Instagram, like us on Facebook, and subscribe to our YouTube channel. Oh, and don’t forget to join our ever-growing Croteam family on Discord and Reddit.

Serious Sam Fusion update 433900 is live!



Hey everyone! It's that time of the year again, the time of Fusion updates. This time, we're bringing to you a relatively small update focusing mostly on bug fixes and tweaks, rather than new features, engines and other huge changes that were introduced several months ago.

Guided by our community we have made huge progress in providing you with a stable, up-to-date Serious Sam experience, and Fusion is at its peak right now. It's THE way to play all supported Serious Sam games.

The changelog is below:
  • fixed an issue where the player would stop moving after using the weapon wheel
  • added various missing translations
  • fixed some navigation issues in Karnak (TFE)
  • fixed an issue where the menu palette would not change in some cases after leaving multiplayer games
  • fixed an issue with the weapon wheel becoming unusable after finishing a level
  • fixed an issue with the text overlapping on certain screens
  • VR FPS counters will no longer be shown in non-VR games
  • fixed an issue with client aiming being off in 3rd person in multiplayer
  • newer Nvidia Quadro GPU's should no longer be marked as not compatible by mistake
  • rebaked visibility on all SSHD and Sam 3 levels
  • fixed an issue where the serious bomb would not disappear from the inventory upon finishing the level
  • fixed an issue where killing certain enemies would cause crashes in rare instances
  • the game no longer has issues starting-up on lower end dual-core CPU systems
  • the weapon wheel should now work when using custom button layouts on a gamepad
  • various other tweaks and performance/stability fixes

As ever, in case you are having issues with this update, you can roll back to the previous one:
  • locate the game in the Steam's "Library" panel
  • right click and invoke "Properties"
  • select the "Betas" tab
  • choose "previousversion"


Note – After downloading this patch, it is most likely that many custom maps will crash when played. The authors of these maps can fix this by rebaking the visibility on their maps and updating their workshop items. We apologize for the inconvenience.

About This Game

Serious Sam VR: The Second Encounter is a sequel to Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter – a frantic arcade action FPS, featuring singleplayer and co-op campaign modes, various multiplayer modes, all presented in glorious VR with Croteam's new Serious Warp movement system.

Grab your VR headset and explore Sam's chaotic world of extreme violence and endless fun.

KEY FEATURES:

Serious Sam Fusion 2017 integration - receive free updates for this game through the central hub. Oh, and play cross-platform with players of the "flat" version to find out what's the ultimate combo: hi-tech motion controllers or good old keyboard & mouse

Moves like Jagger - Serious Sam VR: The Second Encounter features a built-in (blink) teleportation system that allows you to move quickly and avoid charging enemies with the help of Sam's translocator device. You can tweak and adjust the way you move through VR space to best suit your playing style by using our own Serious Warp (TM) locomotion. Feeling much more hardcore than that? Use the smooth trackpad/analog stick movement and go full locomotion.

Not another single-weapon game – Keyboards are for typing, so keep your fingers off. Grab a weapon, one for each hand, and boost your stopping power with Sam's new toys: Sniper Rifle, Flamethrower and Chainsaw! Use different weapon combinations or dual-wield two of the same to defeat Mental or use your arsenal in a deathmatch against "flat peasants".

Old-school, but nice and shiny – Visit South America, ancient Mesopotamia and Medieval Europe, uncover over 130 hidden secrets and lose yourself in one of the most impressive VR experiences yet, all powered by the latest Serious Engine 2017.

Steam Workshop Support - where you will be able to submit your content creation or download new player-created modifications.

Full blast singleplayer action – Go back through time and use all of the available firepower to go head to head against five new enemies and three nasty bosses. Choose between five difficulty settings that can satisfy everyone - a gentle flower looking for some casual fun or a death machine ready to spread mayhem in virtual reality.

Pick your poison - Plunge into chaotic 16-player versus multiplayer modes, some unique and others based on campaign levels, or enjoy the classic co-op action in a 12-level cooperative campaign mode featuring several difficulty settings, increased enemy strength (based on player count), friendly fire/infinite ammo options, and much more. Play the entire co-op campaign in classic 80's arcade style with limited lives.

FREE DLC - SSVR: The Second Encounter includes the DLC Legend of the Beast, available for free with the VR version.

MULTIPLAYER MODES:

Beast Hunt and Team Beast Hunt - Compete against other players, or teams in Team Beast Hunt, hunting down various enemies to see who can get the best score at the end of each campaign level!
Survival and Team Survival - Alone or with other team members, fight off endless enemy attacks in a specially designed survival map, and try to survive for as long as possible!
Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch - Watch all hell break loose in free-for-all or team based battles with classic deathmatch rules!
My Burden - Hold the special item and protect it from others in an attempt to get the highest score and secure your victory!
Last Man Standing and Last Team Standing – Use your wits and reflexes to help your team or yourself to be the last man standing in these single-spawn modes.
Capture the Flag - Infiltrate the opposing team's base, steal their flag and secure it to get points, while also defending your own.
Instant Kill - It's simple - you get hit, you die!
