Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter will also feature an all new Co-Op Tournament mode that will allow teams to compete with one another.

This high-action classic has been completely rebuilt in glorious HD using the Serious 3 engine, and has never looked better. In addition, the old-school first-person shooter gameplay has been brought up to date in explosive fashion with all new 16-player multiplayer modes and a host of new weapons, monsters and arenas including:

  • Three ancient worlds to ruin: South America, ancient Mesopotamia and medieval Europe.
  • Over 130 secrets including over 15 brand new ones hidden amongst the carnage.
  • Take on 27 outlandish warriors in Lord Mental's army, including old favorites like the Beheaded Kamikaze, Syrian Werebull and Kleer Skeleton.
  • Go head to head against five new enemies and three new bosses.
  • Special Weapons and Power-Ups including three new toys: the Sniper Rifle, Flamethrower and Chainsaw.
  • Co-Op Modes - Up to 16 players in campaign Co-Op mode and Co-Op Survival.
  • Deathmatch Modes - Eight classic and brand new deathmatch maps for up to 16 players.
  • Multiplayer Survival Mode - Try to stay alive as long as you can against continued enemies’ attacks in specially designed survival maps.
  • Versus Modes - Fight against your friends in more versus matches including all new Beast Hunt and My Burden modes.
  • Team Modes - Compete against other groups in team matches including Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag and Last Team Standing.

The Serious Sam HD Fusion DLC Pack combines all the campaign and multiplayer levels from Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter into Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter for the ultimate in classic first-person shooter mayhem. For the first time ever, Serious Sam fans can enjoy new modes like Beast Hunt and My Burden using the classic maps from Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter. The Fusion DLC Pack is a free update for Serious Sam HD: Second Encounter on Steam to those users that own both Serious Sam HD: First Encounter and Second Encounter or the Serious Sam HD: Gold Edition or Double Pack.

“What’s the deal with giving stuff away for free,” said Fork Parker, Chief Financial Officer at Devolver Digital, Serious Sam HD publisher. “If the video game industry has taught me anything it’s that you milk these games for all their worth. Freaking amateurs.” “Serious Sam 3 better be priced at over $400 or we might as well close up shop,” replied Fork when asked for further comment.

 Serious Sam HD: First Encounter and Second Encounter are both available for download for PC, Steam, and Xbox Live Arcade.
