The collective sound of the Serious Sam fans right now sound like the headless bombers from the series. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAh. The first trailer showing gameplay footage of Serious Sam 3: BFE is out and it looks downright impressive. Graphically this game looks to be one of the best we're going to see this year. But fans of the series won't be distracted by the shiny objects on their screen, instead two things stand out from the trailer - a sledgehammer and iron sights.
Serious Sam has always been about ridiculously fast run and gun action, so adding iron sighted weapons seems a bit odd. That said the official slogan for the game is "No Cover, All Man" so I don't think we have to worry about Sam going tactical. And when he's ripping out eyeballs or smashing fat demons over the head with a sledgehammer, he's anything but.
We'll be getting a closer look at the game at E3 2011 next week, hopefully we don't have to bring our own sledgehammer.
