Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass Teaser Trailer

Serious Sam is back on "A brutally bigger scale"! Croteam and Devolver Digital teased Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass!

Although developer studio Croteam released six new games in last seven years, they always face a common question; where is Serious Sam? This is a valid question because the franchise was both a commercial and critical success.

For some time, Croteam was working with publisher Devolver Digital to release Serious Sam's Bogus Detour and Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope. Seeing those projects succeed, they revealed a teaser for Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass.

Planet Badass teaser showcases how Serious Sam series has evolved in so many different ways over the years.

Sam "Serious" Stone is driving his motorcycle into a location that could be a pastoral farm as a deer is seen playfully wandering around. He notices a Beheaded Kamikaze enemy heading towards his direction from afar screaming loudly.

In his typical fashion, Sam brings out his gun and blew its head up into bits by shooting directly at him as he passed by, heading straight towards a large field with hundreds and thousands of them in it along with many other monsters.

This is where the shorter than a minute teaser trailer ends and we got a clear message that Sam is back in business once again to save Earth from another invasion by their leader Mental and slay tons of his evil extraterrestrial minions.

Croteam studio wanted to take things on a much bigger scale with their most beloved first-person action shooter series and therefore, they are back again with a mainline entry six years after releasing Serious Sam 3: BFE back in 2011.

During E3 2018 press conference, Croteam will be revealing what new super powerful weapons Sam will wield upon his return to take care of enemy force, which means, we can hope to see a full reveal of Planet Badass in mid-June 2018.

There is a Steam page for Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass but it offers no clue about the game at all, except that it will be available for PC. More launch platforms are likely to be revealed in future as well, with a release date of course.
