Majesco Entertainment, today announced that ‘Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter’ is coming to the Xbox LIVE Arcade for the Xbox 360 next month, complete with brand new co-op modes.
Developed by Croteam, the creators of the Serious Sam franchise, and produced in partnership with Devolver Digital, ‘Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter’ continues the glorious high-definition chaos with a slick new graphic presentation, intense multiplayer action, and an onslaught of all-new levels, enemies and bosses. This expertly re-vamped iteration of the original cranks up the carnage and uses the Serious Engine 3 to deliver the trademark over-the-top-action that is synonymous with the golden age of first-person shooters.
Traveling through the crumbling Mayan ruins of South America, towering ziggurats of ancient Mesopotamia and the savage realm of medieval Europe, Second Encounter players will fend off never-ending waves of Lord Mental’s Army. These warriors include old friends like the Beheaded Kamikaze, Syrian Werebull and Kleer Skeleton, along with five new types of baddies and three new bosses for Sam to “play with.” Luckily, our hero has a HUGE arsenal of 14 ‘bring-the-pain’ weapons at his disposal, including three new toys: the Sniper Rifle, Flamethrower and Chainsaw.
For those fans who don’t want to go at it alone, the game’s co-op mode lets up to four players ratchet up the mayhem across 12 maps that include a brand spanking new Coop Survival mode along with other Cooperative, Versus and Team modes like Beast Hunt, Team Deathmatch, Last Man Standing and Capture the Flag. Featuring BIG guns, TONS of enemies, loads of achievements and more than 100 delightful secrets to discover, ‘Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter’ will remind players why they got into playing games in the first place: to blow stuff up.
‘Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter’ will be released for the Xbox LIVE Arcade on September 22nd, 2010.
