Recently we’ve learned that Serious Sam 2 received a huge update after 15 years after its debut. No, we didn’t see this coming. This was announced on the Steam page of the developer studio Croteam. The studio has teamed up with indie developer Nathan “DwK” Brown to roll out patch 2.90 for the 2002 first-person shooter. We’ll tell you all the details below.
Serious Sam 2 welcomes a new update 15 years after its debut
“It’s been five billion years since the last proper update for Serious Sam 2,” states Croteam on Steam. “In the meantime, we have released a bunch of games, but Serious Sam 2 was always creeping in the darkest corners of our minds. So much so that when the ol’ Nate, aka Nathan Brown, aka DwK, mentioned how he’d love to give the game another chance, we jumped right onto the hype train.”
Brown, for his part, has been a huge fan of the Serious Sam saga since the first day. Thanks to his background, he has developed a patch that significantly changes the classic Serious Sam 2 experience with two new weapons, speed runs, rockets, several improvements to the visuals and animations, a radar that tracks enemies, NPCs, and targets.
“In addition, competitive gamers will be very happy to know that there are a dozen multiplayer maps. I hope that all that was done helps keep the game enjoyable for a long time to come” Brown wrote in Croteam’s announcement, “If that works out, it was all worth it. Long live Serious Sam 2!” he added. We remind you that the game is currently available on PC via Steam. In 2005, the Xbox version also debuted.
