The Talos Principle visits the past with Serious Sam voice pack

Croteam is digging into its heritage for The Talos Principle's latest DLC by inserting a very familiar character.


In many ways, Croteam's The Talos Principle explores frontiers that the developer had never venture to before. There's philosophy, puzzles, and questions about the nature of the world. It's definitely a far cry from the mindless running and gunning of their previous franchise, Serious Sam. But what happens when Devolver Digital and Croteam puts peanut butter in their chocolate and crosses these two streams? Well, they wind up with the Serious Sam voice pack, of course.

The latest DLC completely replaces The Talos Principle's main character, Elohim, with ultra macho mascot Serious Sam. As expected, voice actor John J. Dick is along for the ride, recording all-new dialogue for Serious Sam's breach into a world that is not his own.

Devolver and Croteam insist that this is not an April Fools gag and note that the Serious Sam voice pack will be available for free until April 7. Afterwards, the DLC will run for $2.99. Those looking to pick up The Talos Principle on PC for the first time will be able to pick it up for half-off on Steam from now until April 6.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
