Update: Serious Sam 3 VR: BFE is now available for purchase on Steam for $35.99 (that includes a 10% launch discount, normally it’s $39.99) with support for both HTC Vive and Oculus Rift with Touch.
Original: Hot off the back of the release of The Talos Principle VR, it looks like Croteam’s next VR port will be here very, very soon.
A listing for Serious Sam 3 VR: BFE, which was announced earlier this year, recently popped up on Steam and confirms that the game will be releasing on November 9th. We’re reaching out to Croteam and publisher Devolver Digital to make sure that’s 100% the case, but it’d be a little weird to suddenly post a Steam listing saying your game releases tomorrow if that isn’t really the case.
The Steam page also includes the first trailer for the game in action, which you can see above. It looks exactly like you’d expect: a straight up port of the fast-paced action game for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, much like the ports of the first two games were. It’s set to offer the usual cooperative and single-player modes, the former of which can be played with those using the traditional version of the game.
The game’s release also means Croteam will have ported all of its 3D games to VR now, which begs the question: what’s next? The developer recently moved its full VR game, Serious Sam: The Last Encounter, out of Early Access (and we loved it), so we’re not sure what else is on the table. Could we perhaps see a VR version of the upcoming The Talos Principle 2 launch day and date with the standard version of the game? Or could the developer now turn its attention to PlayStation VR (PSVR) ports of its existing VR titles?
