It feels like an eternity since Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass was announced. First announced exactly two years ago, Croteam has been especially secretive about SS4. Other than some leaked alpha footage (which looked terrible by the way), there hasn’t been much of an update or tease from the studio, leading to fans questioning the status of the game.

Today, publisher Devolver Digital shared a small snippet from the upcoming game. The 5-second off-screen footage shows Sam blasting away some Gnaars and Mechanoids with his new auto shotgun.

Developed by true shooter veterans in Croteam, Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass reignites the classic series by improving on the old-school formula. Enjoy the high-adrenaline action combat with an unbelievably destructive arsenal and experience Sam’s iconic enemy-annihilating circle-strafing and backpedaling dance-routine on an even bigger scale.


    Serious Sam was always about using whatever comes towards you for target practice and this time it’s no different. Fight through giant hordes of relentless foes, both those that defined the franchise like Kamikaze and Kleer and those ready to become iconic in the future.
  • Bigger, badder, better
    Fight and explore your way through huge environments populated with optional objectives, secrets and deadly ambushes. But, fear not! Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass is still a focused, linear experience you have come to love, and NOT an open-world game.
  • Wroom, wroom
    Traversing big environments is no easy task. So get your driving skills ready and jump on a motorcycle, a combine or even a bulletproof popemobile and drive your way through unfortunate enemy pedestrians.
  • This time, Sam’s bringing friends
    Companions no longer appear only in cut-scenes, but are taking part in the action. Rodriguez, Jones, Hellfire and the rest of the crew are joining Sam in this epic journey through Planet Badass.

Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass has no exact release date at the time of this review.
