Serious Sam 3 includes split screen co-op

Croteam has confirmed that Serious Sam 3: BFE will feature split screen multiplayer and co-op on the PC.

Croteam is sticking to its physically impossible to carry by any normal man guns, and are creating a modern-day love letter to shooters of yore. Example: How many guns can Sam carry in Serious Sam 3: BFE? The simple answer is, "All the guns."

Another classic relic, thought lost in the era of modern day gaming included in the new Serious Sam adventure? Split screen multiplayer on PC.

Returning for the first time since the original game in the series, split screen Serious Sam 3 allows for up to four players to compete on a single computer, with the help of a mouse and keyboard setup and up to three connected gamepads.

All included versus and co-op modes will be available for the four-player mode, with indicators onscreen to relay the position of other Serious hunters, a press release revealed.

      I want to know about console. I doubt my laptop can do that well.

      Also, Xav, why are all Shack links on Twitter in a StumbleUpon wrapper?

        My guess is that it's for analytics and such.

          Shouldn't they get that just by owning and operating the website through something like Google Analytics?

        They 'get' Duke better than 3DRealms/Gearbox do.

          Seriously. Serious Sam II was a better Duke Nukem Forever than Duke Nukem Forever.

      Woah blast from the past. Four player splitscreen on one PC would be a fun setup in the living room.

      The real problem is of course. Sadly this is a Serious Sam game.

        ?! What's your beef with SS? The first was awesome, the second more of the same (if you liked it).

        ^^Abrasion never played co-op mode otherwise he'd have a massive hard on for this game right now.

      Nice! :D
      And I think this is the first time we see the rocket launcher and cannon which look great. I was getting worried with the game's weapons as what they shown so far looked pretty crappy. The weapons looked like real modern weapons and they had reload...RELOAD!...seriously? And I'm not liking the ironsights either.

      But the best thing about this game is that the PC version will release first exclusively with the console versions "coming later". hehe

      It's funny that you rarely see four player split screen... even on the consoles. That's like one of the things it had going for it. Bunch of greedy dickwads looking for another game purchase.

      Props Croteam even though I doubt I'll be using this as my monitor and computer work fine and so do my friends.

      I won't play it unless TruForm can be enabled.
