Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope – Arcadia Update is available NOW on Steam Early Access!

As was promised a couple of weeks back, the new Arcadia planet is available NOW for all Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope owners on Steam. This new update brings us another step closer to our ultimate goal, which is the full release of the game on Steam.

With the Arcadia Update landing on Early Access, SSVR: The Last Hope continues its journey towards full release on Steam. This time Sam “Serious” Stone will visit Arcadia Minor, and its four different locations – Sea Breeze, Meadow of Death, The Lost Valley and The Final Breath – equal parts green and lush as they are gray and desolate.

As is tradition, Sam has got some new toys like the devastating cannon that will help him annihilate all comers. On Arcadia Minor Sam will face four new enemies, and a huge Earth Giant boss which looks to crush all that stand before him. Do you have what it takes to stop this colossal beast?

Along with the aforementioned fresh new content, the Arcadia Update offers the usual amount of adjustments, tweaks and improvements, all based on community feedback. The most important one is the reworked save system which now allows you to continue a wave where you left-off in a previous session. That means you no longer need to go through a planet in a single sitting. Hooray!

E3 2017, here we come!

As you might have guessed, Croteam will be attending this year’s E3. As always, we’ll be there with style, as demonstrated in the photo on the left. Since we are very proud of all that we were able to accomplish in  VR, this year we’ll be focusing on our upcoming VR projects, namely Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope and The Talos Principle VR.

The Last Hope has been Croteam VR core project for a while now, and soon it will be available as a full release. The latest update, Arcadia Minor is due to be released this week (more details to come). We are very excited to show all of the progress we made recently.

As for The Talos Principle VR, this will be the first time an “outsider” gets to see the game we have been working on tirelessly for months now. We will be showing Talos in all the VR glory behind closed doors, so stay tuned for more info on the game during the show.

Care for a chat or a play through? Pay us a visit at Devolver’s Anti-Booth located at the lot across the LA Convention Center.

We don’t always open our door to journos, but when we do…

… it’s turns out to be fun!

The good folks over from ASUS Republic of Gamers came to visit us a couple of weeks back. Kimberly and Jason had a chance to try out all our current VR projects and were completely blown away by the immersive and intense experiences they offer. Soon after that they started chatting to a few of our own, including our Alen Ladavac, Ante Vrdelja, Damjan Mravunac, Dean Sekulić and Nikola Mosettig, which let them find out first hand why we love VR and why we are willing to dwell in this alternate world.

If you want to know yourself, have a look at their freshly released article “Inside Croteam, the game studio going all-in on Virtual Reality“. Enjoy!

SSVR: The Last Hope – Arcadia Update Coming in the First Week of June 2017!

As you all probably know, the Croteam VR team has been hard at work on the big Arcadia update for Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope. This new update is all but done, and while there is some polishing left to do, we’re so confident that we can officially announce the release window which will be the first week of June – so pretty soon.

Arcadia is equally green and lush as it is gray and desolate. It hides a danger unlike any other that you’ve seen before, so Sam has got to use every single one of his big guns to battle against tons of enemies – five of them new! Of course, Arcadia will be released with full co-op support, because blasting alien scum to bits is always more rewarding with friends.

What’s that? Will Arcadia be the final update to TLH, you ask? Why no, no it won’t. We’ve got some cool new surprises in store for you, but you’ll have to wait for more info on that. 🙂

In the meantime, how about a guessing game? Which new weapon will help Mr. Stone in his Arcadia adventures? Which one would you like to see in all it’s VR glory? Let us know on Twitter.

We are both proud and happy that one of our own, Alen Ladavac, was able to set the tone of the conference with his opening keynote Game Developer’s Meaning of Life. If you missed this keynote, you’re at a loss. But don’t worry, there’s a second best option – watching it on YouTube – so enjoy!

Looking forward to an even bigger and better Reboot Develop 2018. See you there!

Also featured in the Valtos Update are six different enemies including Kalopsy, Siren, Swamp Monster, Air Trooper, Technopolyp and Air Sniper Trooper. After dealing with them Sam will have to fight toe to toe with the Swamp Hive boss, as scary as it is slimy.

To help him in his mission, General Stone’s arsenal got even deadlier with new additions including a bow with piercing/explosive arrows and the deadly Devastator.

Valtos Update also includes many different tweaks, fixes and optimizations such as vastly improved precision for the default sword projectile casting mode and improved shield energy display.
