If you’re looking for a new VR game and you’ve never played Serious Sam, welcome to the weird and wonderful world of Croteam.

Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope is now available through Steam‘s Early Access at a 20% discount on launch price. Here’s Croteam’s description:

Have you ever wondered what it’s really like to be Serious Sam? Have you ever wanted to fight Mental’s alien hordes with your own two hands? Well, now you can! Step into the shoes of the Earth Defense Force’s greatest hero in this unique VR simulation based on Sam Stone’s own log files from his time as captain of the Battlecruiser Saratoga. Experience the missions that turned Captain Stone into the legend that he is today.

You’ll need a VR headset and a pair of tracked motion controllers; this one can’t be played with a game pad. Croteam made a prototype VR minigun peripheral while it was playing around with VR, but unfortunately there are no plans to release it.

Probably for the best, as that means you can use variety of different weapons, as shown in the trailer above.
