Picking up where Serious Sam: Second Encounter left off, Sam has rocketed off towards the conquered planet of Sirius, the new home of the notorious Mental. While en route, the Great Wizards Council of the nearly eradicated Sirian civilization telepathically contacts Sam to aid him in his quest to destroy Mental and help restore Sirius. He is then sent on a quest to find the fragments of a mystical medallion scattered throughout the galaxy that will bestow Sam with the power to defeat Mental.

Serious Sam II was developed by Croteam and is powered by their internally-developed Serious Engine 2. Featuring pick up and play frantic-fun, Serious Sam II allows gamers to really blow $#!% up in more than 40 enormous levels. Serious Sam II also features online co-operative gameplay for PC -- with up to 16 players via LAN or Internet and Xbox for up to four players via Xbox LiveĀ® online game service or system link.

"Serious Sam II delivers classic first-person shooter gameplay with an all-new 3D engine," said Christoph Hartmann, Managing Director of 2K Games. "The latest Serious Sam installment is sure to please fans of the series and anyone else who enjoys a fast paced, frantic-fun gaming experience."
