Ammo enthusiasts Croteam and pop-gun wielding publisher Devolver Digital announced the first major update to Serious Sam VR on Steam which includes an all-new online co-op mode so you can frag the crap out of aliens with a buddy in virtual reality. The new co-op mode allows for two players and works on any level in the game which is currently available on Steam Early Access for $39.99 (http://store.steampowered.com/app/465240/).
In Serious Sam VR, it is the period of the first Mental War. Earth’s defense forces are crumbling under the hordes of the vicious Mental. He managed to break the will of many nations by destroying the ancient shrines of the domestic people. A fearless EDF general, Sam ‘Serious’ Stone, is leading the resistance from the battlecruiser ‘BC Saratoga’ in a desperate attempt to save the galaxy.
Serious Sam VR is serious fast action. Get into the fight immediately after choosing one of several missions, drop in and start wreckin’ faces. Featuring multiple levels on multiple planets, the bosses you’ll encounter in this virtual world are bigger, badder and uglier than you’ve yet encountered as Sam Stone.
The new co-op mode puts players side by side inside the VR simulation of Captain Sam’s combat logs with each player controlling one of two virtual-but-deadly versions of Sam Stone to deliver double the damage on Mental’s hordes of enemies. Players can jump in and start doling out destruction via either HTC Vive or Oculus Rift or a combination of both.
Pick up and master new weapons or use trusty favourites like the dual-wielding shotguns or the pirate cannon, and use your power ups to navigate your skill tree to be the boldest, biggest and most virtual Sam you can be. In-between missions, use in-game currency to customise or upgrade your gear on the Saratoga battlecruiser and FSU in all new ways in each battle.
Additional updates include various balance tweaks and enhancements along with two new difficulty settings: Tourist and Serious, both of which are playable in single player and co-op modes.
