Pricing, Release, and DLC Information

Recently SeriousSamIAm tweeted about a DLC for Serious Sam 3 over at Croteam's website and I was wondering about if we would also get the DLC and it appears so. From his tweet:

Quote:
SeriousSamIAm @XNevanderX The Jewel of the Nile DLC on XBLA will be available the same day as Serious Sam 3: BFE on XBLA.
He also went on to tell us the pricing and how that will work. It appears the base game and the co-op componet(s) are in one package for 1200 MS Points and the DLC plus the competitive MP is in another for another 1200 MS Points.

Quote:
SeriousSamIAm @TheDilliDallyer The main SP/co-op campaign is 1200 MS Points; versus multiplayer and Jewel of the Nile DLC are combined at 1200 MS Points
Not bad really considering the DLC would be 1200 or 800 anyway if we were to get it most likely. Being the Sam fan I am, I will probably buy both content packages.

As for the release date, this is the latest:

Quote:
SeriousSamIAm Point your crosshairs at mid-October, looks like that's when Serious Sam 3 XBLA and Serious Sam 3: Jewel of the Nile are going to drop!
Lastly, if you're wondering what the DLC is about, here is a quick run-down:

Quote:
Serious Sam 3: Jewel of the Nile follows the legendary hero to the mysterious Temple of Isis on the island or Philae where a monstrous temple guardian lies in wait. Set in the midst of the main Serious Sam 3: BFE storyline, gamers will battle through three new campaign missions against the unrelenting hordes of Mental’s forces including the re-introduction of two familiar monstrous faces. Sam’s arsenal of awesome expands as well as the two secret weapons from the main Serious Sam 3: BFE storyline – the laser gun and sniper rifle – make their way into the spotlight in Serious Sam 3: Jewel of the Nile.

NEW RELEASE INFO:

Quote:
Zagreb, Croatia – Croteam, Devolver Digital and Mastertronic have announced the brutal first-person shooter Serious Sam 3: BFE will launch worldwide via Xbox LIVE Arcade on October 17th. Developed by series creator Croteam, the Xbox LIVE Arcade version of last year’s breakthrough arcade-style shooter has been painstakingly converted to take full advantage of the Xbox 360 and Xbox LIVE to deliver an unparalleled Serious Sam experience on the home console.

“Ever since we announced Serious Sam 3: BFE our fans have asked us to bring the game to Xbox LIVE Arcade,” said Davor Hunski, Chief Creative Guy at Croteam. “Boom. Done.”

In just one week, Serious Sam fans around the world can download Serious Sam 3: BFE on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 1200 MS Points which includes the ginormous single-player, online cooperative, and spilt-screen cooperative campaign modes. The brand-new Serious Sam 3: Jewel of the Nile campaign expansion and all multiplayer versus modes like Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, Last Team Standing and My Burden will be available at launch and priced at 1200 MS Points.

With over 25 savage achievements, multiple leaderboards, and local split-screen cooperative play, Serious Sam 3: BFE has been tuned and perfected for its debut on Xbox LIVE Arcade.

“Awesome, now I can go from getting absolutely annihilated by some loudmouth with a mouse and keyboard to getting annihilated by some loudmouth with an Xbox 360 controller,” said Fork Parker, Devolver Digital CFO. “Damn these silky smooth thumbs.”

Oh, and for those wondering, Serious Sam 3: BFE would not fit within the Xbox LIVE Arcade file size limit so we wanted to make sure the complete single player and co-op campaign modes were together and bundled the multiplayer versus and Jewel of the Nile expansion together!
