Serious Sam 3: BFE
Serious Sam To Give it Both Barrels on XBLA This Fall

Typical. You wait for one Serious Sam game, then two come along at once. And with Serious Sam 3: BFE finally showing some signs of life last week, Devolver Digital, Mastertronic, Croteam and Mommy's Best Games have announced that the autumn release of that game will be joined by another Serious Sam title called Serious Sam Double D XXL. Honest.

While Croteam will work to bring Serious Sam 3: BFE to the Xbox Live Arcade, Mommy's Best Games is developing the 2D scrolling counterpart, Serious Sam Double D XXL, which is a revamped version of last year's indie PC hit with all-new missions and a 2-player co-op campaign mode on top of the original game's 18 campaign lavels and 12 challenge maps. There'll also be new enemies, new Gunstacker upgrades and new challenges.

"Xbox Live Arcade gamers are going to get so much insane Serious Sam action this summer it’s going to make their televisions bleed," said Fork Parker, CFO of Devolver Digital. "Call the paramedics, homey. Your flat screen TV just took another headshot from Serious Sam."

OK then. Serious Sam 3: BFE and Serious Sam Double D XXL will both be launching on the Xbox Live Arcade this autumn. Or 'fall' if you prefer.

how do you suck at these games? Its basicly strafing backwards dodging bullets and firing every bullet you got. But seriously, my 250gb hdd is running out of space, got like 280 arcade titles now and all the add ons and some games on demand the space is running out. I expect these to be around 2gb. ah hell, guess ill have to get some usb sticks eventually.

Serious Sam 3 on XBLA? The Steam version is 4 gigs minimum, so they'll have some compressing to do. Hopefully that doesn't involve cutting stuff out...

But no Serious Sam 2? As they have done the First and Second Encounters already, surely the first proper sequel would be on the agenda, too?

Good to hear that BFE is actually finally seriously coming to 360. Was beginning to think it was canned.

bout freaking time! love SS!! and @3 you do release you are being robbed blind with 'games on demand'?? You pay 3 times over the odds, you can't trade it in, if there are any vip codes you have to buy them on top of the game!! plus that will be taking up the most space.

Loved the first 2 games, but please, quit giving us these crazy tough as nails acheivements. I don't have the time to put in the same amount of time I put into a retail game into an XBLA game.

No complaints other than the previous 2 installment's acheivements.
