Take-Two Interactive announced today that its Global Star publishing label has shipped Serious Sam: Next Encounter for the PlayStation2 and GameCube to North American retailers and is expected to be released in Europe and Australia on April 30, 2004. Developed by Climax, the newest addition to the popular first-person shooter franchise features online play for up to eight players and two-player split screen action on the PlayStation 2, a four-player deathmatch option on the Nintendo GameCube, and two-player cooperative mode for both platforms. Serious Sam: Next Encounter is rated M for Mature and is available for the suggested retail price of $19.99.

Serious Sam: Next Encounter finds Sam gearing up once again to defend the Earth from Mental and his limitless extra-terrestrial hordes. Sam is launched back in time to rid the alien scum from more than 40 levels spread throughout three beautifully rendered, massive new time periods – Ancient Rome, Feudal China and legendary Atlantis. For the first time ever, Sam will have access to vehicles to help him mow down the enemies, and of course he’ll be armed to the teeth with an arsenal that contains old favorites and some high-powered new additions. Throughout it all, Serious Sam: Next Encounter maintains the same hilarious and high speed shoot-‘em-up action that fans have come to love, while introducing tons of new features that will keep the fingers of experts and newcomers alike wrapped around their trigger buttons.

In addition, Global Star has also shipped Serious Sam Advance for the Nintendo ® Game Boy Advance, the first Serious Sam title for the system. Serious Sam Advance retails for $19.99.
