Croteam announced that Serious Sam VR is coming to early access on Steam and just like many other games, it will undergo a lot of bug fixing and player feedback before it gets it full release.
Virtual reality gaming is kicking off and Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter which happens to be a remastered edition is just the right pick for the platform. After all, instead of trying to pick latest games that could run into copyright issues and technical glitches, going with old school, action titles seem like a feasible idea.
The Croteam development group released Serious Sam VR The Last Hope which is still in early access on Steam. The games are developed on Serious Engine 2017 edition and is as action packed as the original game is. They have also introduced a bunch of new features to make the game enjoyable when using a virtual reality headset. You can go for the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift or one of the new models that are scheduled for launch next year.
Serious Locomotion – One of the modes that allows you to explore the world using trackpad and is much safer to play as Sam has a built-in transportation system. Serious Warp Locomotion allows players to quickly jump from one spot to another to escape charging enemies. It’s going to keep you at the edge of your seat.
Double the Gun, Double the Fun – The best mode for VR! You no longer use your keyboard in this but rather take control of the gun inside the virtual world. With guns on both hands, there’s no control. All you have to do is keep shooting and take them all down.
New Engine for an Old School Game – The Serious Engine 2017 is visually breathtaking according to Croteam that has reworked on Egypt with latest graphics but has preserved the original action and the world’s setup that made the title so popular.
Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter has 16 levels and supports 16 player co-op, competitive modes as reported in WCCFTech. It supports Steam Workshop to players upload their own content. The game supports Oculus Rift and Vive now. The gameplay trailer should give you a fair idea but it’s never as good as viewing it on a HMD.
