Serious Sam 4 gets a story trailer just ahead of release

Serious Sam 4 is out this week, and you can enjoy the latest trailer for it focusing on the story.

Croteam and Devolver Digital released a new trailer for Serious Sam 4 today, and takes a look at the game's story.

If you are unfamiliar with the background on the game, here's the synopsis:

Humanity is under siege as the full force of Mental’s hordes spreads across the world, ravaging what remains of a broken and beaten civilization. The last remaining resistance to the invasion is the Earth Defense Force led by Sam ‘Serious’ Stone and his heavily-armed squad of misfit commandos.

First revealed back in 2013 and partially funded by Humble Bundle proceeds, alongside a story there will be 100,000 enemies on screen, a 128km map, and it will also support co-op.  Sounds just as mad as you would expect a Serious Sam game to be.

To refresh your memory a bit since its announcement, here's a list of features:

  • Hordes of Invaders – The iconic cast of alien invaders returns with some new reinforcements. Fight your way through unbelievable numbers of Mental's minions, including the iconic Headless Kamikaze, Beheaded Rocketeer, Kleer, Scrapjack, Werebull, and Khnum. Square off against brand new enemies and towering monsters like the frantic Processed, repulsive Belcher, the hard-hitting Zealot, and more.
  • Explosive Arsenal – Armed with a slew of devastating weapons, pick your tool for any situation. Lay waste to Mental's Horde using the powerful double-barreled shotgun, the punishing minigun, the powerful chainsaw launcher, a brand new auto shotgun, and the iconic cannon. Upgrade your toys, and enjoy the violent beauty of the lock-on rocket launcher, and the mighty laser beam of death.
  • Cooperative Mayhem – Smash through the action-packed campaign with friends in 4-player online co-op mode. Tackle exciting primary missions and thrilling side quests in modified difficulties for an extra challenge.
  • Legion System– Serious Sam 4 unleashes some of the biggest moments in the series’ history with the new Legion System and battlefields teeming with thousands of enemies.

A prequel to the series, the game is out on Thursday, September 24 for PC and Stadia. It will also be released for PS4 and Xbox One in 2021.
