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.

Follow us on our social channels @Croteam and Croteam Facebook for more updates.

Mixed Reality in Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope

Introduction

This article explains the work it took to implement mixed reality into our game using our own engine. Apart from using the approaches already taken by some other teams, we have developed some new techniques that work great to solve latency issues as well as make camera calibration really simple for the user. We haven’t found anyone describe such solutions to these common problems, so our implementation should be interesting both to people new to the subject and to the people who already did mixed reality and want to improve their approach. 

How it all started for us

Minigun in action

Mixed reality was already found to be a great way to demonstrate VR experience outside of VR. Naturally, we also wanted to use mixed reality for promotion of Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope. We started implementing mixed reality two weeks before the EGX 2016 show so we could be featured on the Vive stand, capture some promotional footage as well as show off our game in all its glory featuring the physical minigun controller.  [Read More]
