Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter is coming to Xbox Live Arcade, courtesy of original developer Croteam in conjunction with Devolver Digital.

In addition to receiving a lovely HD overhaul, Second Encounter will also have a four-player co-op mode, Deathmatch, Capture the Flag and Survival multiplayer modes across 12 maps.

Taking in crumbling Mayan ruins and the primitive realm of Medieval Europe, you'll be fighting off endless waves of Lord Mental's army. He never had a chance with a name like that did he?

Recruits to Lord Mental's forces include old friends like the Beheaded Kamikaze, Syrian Werebull and Kleer Skeleton, as well as an additional five new types of enemy and three new bosses for Sam to blast his way through.

Sam will have 14 weapons with which to deal out death, including three brand new tools of destruction - the Sniper Rifle, Flamethrower and Chainsaw. Tasty.

No launch date as yet, but expect it later this year.

Hell yeah, can't wait! I found the 2nd encounter to be more fun and less repetitive as the first.

The first one was awesome, but didn't have splitscreen co-op. Only if it has splitscreen, then, insta-buy.

"Look ma, I'm a lumberjack!"

Shit yes. The second one was better than the original in nearly everyway. The last level made my jaw drop with the enemy count back in the day...

..I cannot wait to relive that.

Also @15, I want Doom 2 as much as the next guy (I am the DOOMinator, after all) but patience is a virtue. I bet you if nobody comments on x360a for a solid week about Doom 2, we'll get a release date.

Let's hope the cheeves are more fun than the first one, otherwise I might pass. I've already beaten this 2x (on computer and then on XBOX). Co-op should be fun.

The second encounter makes up for most of the first game's shortcomings.

This game is made of win, bad jokes, and duke nukem cracks.

I've never played it co-op, but i'd be willing to give it a go.

The first one is full of all the boring missions, not that there isnt a few good ones. But this is the real serious sam game to play right here
