– Sam Stone is back! And this time it's real. Real developer Croteam and virtual
publisher Devolver Digital announce Serious Sam VR, coming to a VR headset near

anybody?) Serious Sam VR gives you a seemingly never ending supply of
enemy-eviscerating weapons, and use your power ups to navigate your skill tree
to be the boldest, biggest and most virtual Sam you can be. Customize or upgrade
your gear on the Saratoga battlecruiser in-between missions using in-game
currency that has nothing to do with real-world currency (sorry Fork Parker, no

Access this summer.
