The ‘Giant’ update for Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter is here

A new update has been released for SSVR: The First Encounter, bringing many bug fixes and tweaks to the game, but one new feature literally stands out: world and weapon scaling! What it means is that you can make things smaller or bigger in the game to make them look just right. Or go overboard with the slider and become a giant Sam. Or a vertically challenged Sam. Look for this option in – wait for it! – Options (and then select Game options).

The game now also supports blink teleport and includes first experimental support for gamepad or keyboard and mouse, since both features have been requested on Steam forums. Read the whole change log here.

This update includes all fixes from previous beta builds, including optimization tweaks to the locomotion system and improvements in the low-level rendering systems for both DX and Vulkan.

Yaaaay! (no, you won’t get a set of knives with it)

Co-op mode for Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope is live right now

Together with our friends and publishers Devolver Digital we can announce the first major update for Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope – online cooperative game mode, now available on Steam Early Access.

The new co-op mode allows for two players to play campaign online. This puts players side by side inside the VR simulation of Captain Sam’s combat logs with each player controlling one of two virtual-but-deadly versions of Sam Stone to deliver double the damage on Mental’s hordes of enemies. Players can jump in and start doling out destruction via either HTC Vive or Oculus Rift. Now you can finally blast those enemies with your best friend!

In addition to that, players can choose between two new difficulty settings: Tourist and Serious, both in single player and co-op mode.
