Serious Sam 4 launched last year exclusively on PC and Google Stadia. However, it seems a console release may be fast approaching. As spotted by Gematsu, the German USK rating board has rated Serious Sam 4 for PS5 although developer Croteam and publisher Devolver Digital are yet to officially announce any console ports.
Serious Sam 4 is a prequel to Serious Sam and it promised to “scale up chaos to unprecedented levels.” Sam “Serious” Stone leads a heavily-armed squad of commandos known as the Earth Defense Force. They’re the last line of defense against an invasion of monstrous hordes led by a god-like being known as Mental. Serious Sam 4 changes up the franchise’s normal gameplay 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.” There are also larger environments, vehicles, and playable companions. The list of key features is below.
- 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 four-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!
With the Google Stadia exclusivity due to run out this year, and earlier promises that Serious Sam 4 would be coming to consoles eventually, it is likely only a matter of time before we get an official announcement.[Source: USK via Gematsu]
