Serious Sam 3 is hitting PC and consoles this summer, developer Croteam has announced.

The game serves as a prequel to the cult classic Serious Sam: The First Encounter and takes place during Earth's final struggle against Mental's invading beasts and mercenaries.

"Serious Sam 3 is about pure fun and unfiltered action," said Davor Hunski, chief creative officer of developer Croteam. "We wanted to expand on everything gamers love about the series while adding some genuinely unique new features to really enhance the mayhem Serious Sam is known for."

Fans will be pleased to hear that trademark features, such as hordes of enemies and large outdoor battlefields return, along with all-new enemies, melee attacks and 16-player multiplayer.

"Holy crap, I am going to make a boatload of cash of this game," said Fork Parker, chief financial officer at Devolver Digital, the Serious Sam 3: BFE publisher. "I mean that's what this is all about, right? If this thing comes out in the summer my wife is totally getting the tit job she's been asking for."
