Serious Sam 3: BFE Delayed Until October; Steam Promotions

Croteam and Devolver Digital announce October 18 as the release date for Serious Sam 3: BFE, the first-person shooter sequel previously planned for release this summer. When we asked for a reason for the delay, we were told Devolver CFO Fork Parker pushed back the release "to work around his vacation to the brothels of Europe" (as our contact said: "I have a weird job").

The announcement also has word that pre-purchases of the game are now underway on Steam, though they aren't actually live yet, and the Steam page still says the game is due this summer. When these pre-purchases do begin, they will carry a 10% discount off the game's $39.99 USD price tag, and those who already own a Serious Sam title on Steam will be entitled to an additional 10% off. Further to that: "To celebrate Serious Sam 3: BFE preorders starting, all Serious Sam HD titles and bundles will be available on Steam at a 66% off discount and 85% off if you preorder Serious Sam 3: BFE today, August 23." There's one more perk for the advance commitment, a "timed exclusive" Fork Parker multiplayer avatar for use in Serious Sam 3: BFE. They also offer a quote from Fork: "I pledge to take one dollar from each Serious Sam 3: BFE preorder and put it towards my wifeís outrageously expensive tit job," said Fork Parker, Devolver Digital CFO. "So get to preordering nerds, I want these babies to block out the sun when Iím done with them." Here's a new "Serious Chaos" trailer to celebrate the news.

Tits or GTF...oh.

Fork should at least post pics later, so people who pre-ordered can see the results of their hard-earned dollar.

Yup. Didn't even have to think twice about skipping the game (until a deep discount comes along). October and November are jam packed with other stuff to play. They really should have stuck to their Summer window... they've chosen a very bad date to release it.

I'll be picking it up. Not much else around that time that I want. Doubt Torchlight 2 will be out by then, with the lack of any new information we've been getting over the last couple months. Rage looks good, but my machine won't do it justice so I gotta wait for a new comp.

They announced that it'll be $40. So $36 for a pre-order, or $32 for a preorder if you own any other Serious Sam game on Steam.

Higher than the price of $30 or so I expected, but the preorder discounts are pretty nice at least.

Even though I probably won't play it, I still like how they both interact with the community, and reward them for playing more of their games.

Meh, if it's like a $20 title I can co-op with some buddies then I'll grab it. There are a ton of SP games coming out but not too many MP ones.

Because Rage comes out Oct 4th and Uncharted 3 on Nov 1st. Not to mention Serious Sam 2 sucked giant hairy monster balls.

Serious Sam gets to wait for the Holiday Steam Sale, it's not even a tough decision like it was with Deus Ex HR.

Why can't you have both. SS3 is bound to be a pretty cheap game.

As an aside: the reason given for the delay is the single best reason I have ever heard to delay a game!
