Serious Sam 3: BFE has finally received some official details. Serving as a prequel to the original Serious Sam: The First Encounter, Serious Sam 3: BFE takes place during the Earth's final struggle against Mental's invading legions of beasts and mercenaries, set against the collapsing temples of an ancient civilization and the crumbling cities of 22nd century Egypt. Relentless hordes of spectacular enemies and expansive outdoor battlefields return, in addition to these features:
- Frantic Arcade-Style Action – The calling card of the Serious Sam series, hold down the trigger and lay waste to a never-ending onslaught of attackers or face being overrun by Mental's savage beasts. No cover systems, no camping – it's just you and them. All of them.
- Mental's Fearsome Legions – A new battalion of unforgettable minions including the rumbling Scrapjack and towering Khnum join the legendary Headless Kamikaze, Gnaar and Sirian Werebull. Your days of mowing down zombie Nazi space pirates are over.
- Serious Melee Attacks – When an enemy slips by your wall of lead and pain, use one of the all-new innovative melee moves to drop an enemy right where they stand in the most violent way possible.
- Pure Multiplayer Mayhem – Play through the full campaign mode with up to 16 players or drop the gauntlet and let the heavy ordinance fly in versus modes like Deathmatch and Beast Hunt. This is the next level of Serious Sam multiplayer and all hell is about to break loose.

"Holy crap, I am going to make a boatload of cash of this game," Fork Parker, chief financial officer at Devolver Digital, said in a statement. "I mean that's what this is all about, right? If this thing comes out in the summer my wife is totally getting the tit job she's been asking for."
