serious-sam-3-bfe

Fans were excited to learn that “Serious” Sam Stone would be returning this year with an all-new adventure, and now there’s a confirmed release date for those fans to pin their hopes to: Serious Sam 3: BFE finally arrives on October 18. Note that this is for the game’s PC release, with downloads available from Steam, Get Games and other online e-tailers. Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 releases are incoming as well, but there’s no confirmed date for those yet.

Publisher Devolver Digital might be best served by holding those console releases back until next year. The holiday season is always a busy one for game releases, and this particular year is chock full of extremely high-profile AAA releases, many of which will include a serious number of hours worth of gameplay. The PC release of Sam will clash with Batman: Arkham City on October 18, with Rage arriving a few weeks earlier and Battlefield 3 virtually guaranteed to dominate sales charts the following week.

The press release notes that Devolver and developer Croteam will be offering some decent exclusives for PC buyers, starting with a 10 percent discount on all purchases made throug hdigital delivery services. Anyone who owns one of Steam’s previous Serious Sam releases will also get an additional 10 percent off for making a purchase there.

In addition, pre-orders come with a bonus in the form of a multiplayer avatar for the (fictitious) Digital Devolver CFO, Fork Parker.Steam will also be offering a pre-order bundle called the “Serious Edition” that packs in a bunch of other extras, including a gold version of the Parker avatar, a timed exclusive DLC weapon, a copy of the game’s soundtrack, a making of video, an art book and, of course, the first two Serious Sam game, which players will be able to gift out to Steam friends it they own them already.
