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 and Croteam finally released another cinematic trailer for Serious Sam 4. Titled Serious Sam 4- A classic returns, the trailer has Sam ‘Serious’ Stone doing what he does. Slaughter wave after wave of alien bastards in droves while riding on a Werebull and dual-wielding a minigun and a lasergun in each hand?

The end of the trailer also reveals the release date to be August 20, 2020, with the platforms listed being STEAM and Google Stadia (consoles will have to wait till next year). Also, the subheading of Planet Badass also seems to have been removed, with the game just being called Serious Sam 4 now.

Watch the premiere trailer below:

While the lack of any actual gameplay is a real bummer, we certainly hope that dual-wielding heavy guns and riding on monsters are features in Planet Badass.

However, a few unlisted videos have popped up from Devolver Digital, showcasing some of the new and returning gameplay mechanics, weapons, and enemies from the game.


Humanity is under siege as the full force of Mental’s hordes spread 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.

Croteam returns with a high-powered prequel to the Serious Sam series that scales up chaos to unprecedented levels. The classic Serious Sam formula is revamped by putting an unstoppable arsenal up against an unimaginable number of enemies that requires players to circle-strafe and backpedal-blast their way out of impossible situations.


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.


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.


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.


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!

Pricing of the game has also been revealed on STEAM, with the Indian version costing a fair price of ₹ 899. Moreover, the entire franchise has just gone on a sale. Go get’em!
