Many years ago, an entire lifetime, one might say, we have bent and twisted and tickled your mind with our puzzler, The Talos Principle. The game was a substantial directional spin on everything we’ve done before. Making it, then seeing you play it, has been one of the most incredible experiences of our lives. This is why we are ecstatic today to announce The Talos Principle 2.
We hope you stay with us for another ride. It will be wild because the past is only the prologue. Much love from Croteam!
Serious Sam: Siberian Mayhem, a new stand-alone expansion to the world of the classic FPS series is finally available on consoles. Join the fight against Notorious Mental on a journey through the wild lands of Russia, and find your way through this lost chapter of Sam Stone’s adventures.
We are proud to announce that another Croteam co-production game has been fully released. Here is a note directly from developer Kris:
This has been a fun run, but like all things, every Early Access comes to an end. The full release of Serious Sam: Tormental introduces a new area called The Fortress that features new enemies and Elite variants, and Torments – special runs with preset starting weapons, powers, and conditions, with leaderboards for each. The update also includes dozens of new weapons, perks, powers, quests, music, and even a brand new character, Ugh Zan Jr!
We are incredibly thankful to everyone who helped us get this far through feedback and general support. You will forever be in our hearts. Much love! -kris

Serious Sam: Siberian Mayhem is a stand-alone expansion to Serious Sam 4, working just as well whether you’ve played SS4. Siberian Mayhem cranks the action up to 11. It’s a hybrid experience ready to deliver explosive fun to fans of classics and the latest instalments to the series.
Siberian Mayhem is very important in another way. This game was designed, and its development has been led by some of the most talented members of the Serious Sam modding community, joined together under the banner of Timelock Studio. The team consists of well-respected names, including DedKadath, Asdolg, YaNexus, UrbanDeHuman, FreekNik, MintFritter, NSKuber, and Ar2R-devil-PiNKy, who worked closely together with Croteam to deliver absolute Mayhem. Here is a message of appreciation from the Timelock Studio team for the Serious Sam fan base:
To experience the “Mayhem” yourself, head over to Steam store page:
We are happy to inform you that Serious Sam 4 has blasted its way to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S!
The scale of chaos has reached unprecedented levels! The classic Serious Sam formula is revamped by putting an unstoppable arsenal up against an incredible number of enemies that requires players to circle-strafe and backpedal-blast their way out of impossible situations.
The iconic cast of alien invaders returns with some new reinforcements! Fight through unbelievable numbers of Mental’s minions, including the iconic Headless Kamikaze, Beheaded Rocketeer, Kleer, Scrapjack, Werebull, and Khnum! Square off against brand new enemies and towering monsters like the frantic Processed, repulsive Belcher, the hard-hitting Zealot, and more.
The time has come to release another one of our co-production babies into the wild. This time, the world will be taken by a storm named The Hand of Merlin.
Made by some of the standout Croteam veterans who worked on The Talos Principle, and written by Jonas and Verena Kyratzes, The Hand of Merlin blends Arthurian legend with sci-fi horror. The game is a tactical masterpiece if we do say so myself, but don’t trust our word on it, check it out for yourself as it’s available in Steam Early Access now.
Make sure to provide any feedback directly to Room-C Games. They are a passionate and super talented bunch, eager to hear what everyone has to say. Find them on the official Hand of Merlin Discord server.
The Serious Sam series celebrated 20 years of shooting action this past Sunday, March 21, and we wanted to make this milestone special by delivering a huge update to not one, but two of our games.
First up, Serious Sam 4 got the long-awaited 1.08 update which includes a bunch of brand new playable characters, even more fixes and tweaks, as well as official modding tool in Serious Editor 2021, powered by Serious Engine. The modding tools are closely followed by full Steam Workshop support, and we’re extremely happy to see that our amazing community is already hard at work, creating magic in Serious Sam 4.
You can find much more info on this latest Serious Sam 4 update in our official announcement on Steam.
The second updated game is much more unexpected. Many, many years after it was touched last, we have updated Serious Sam 2. As part of this update, Serious Sam 2 got 12 brand new multiplayer maps, and some incredible gameplay improvements including dual-wielding, sprinting, and much more. Find out everything there is to know about how this update came to be, and what it includes, on the Steam Community Hub.
To continue our celebrations with you, the fans, we have discounted the entire Serious Sam franchise on Steam, and cut the prices down by up to 90%. Check out those amazing deals on the Serious Sam Anniversary Sale page on Steam.
As promised a few weeks ago, Serious Sam 4 Update 1.07 arrives just in time for the Steam Winter Sale and comes with a bang. If you haven’t guessed by the cover image, the update celebrates upcoming Holidays with a special time-limited in-game event and a new playable character. That’s right, Serious Sam 4 is taking you on a trip to an alien-infested Winter Wonderland.
To activate this special event, make sure you are playing on Steam, then find a lonely Christmas tree on “Death from Above” and slap some decorations on that bad boy. Do it as Santa Sam for a complete experience.
Alongside the new Christmas event, Serious Sam 4 Update 1.07 delivers the long-awaited Survival mode. Jump in solo or with friends and see how long you can survive fighting ever-growing hordes of aliens across three very different locations.
This update also contains various fixes and tweaks, so make sure to read through the entire changelog on Steam or Reddit.
During the Steam Winter Sale, Serious Sam 4 is available at 20% off, so grab it now if you haven’t already.
As always, we’ll be looking out for your feedback and acting on it. Feel free to report any issues in the tech-support subforum, and we’re always open to suggestions via forums. We’ll love you even more if you join our official Discord server.
Got a funny moment to share? Maybe some fan-art or a crazy Serious Sam video you made? We’d love to take a look and share it for everyone else to see. Reach out to our community team directly via Discord, or holler at us via Twitter – @croteam, @serioussamiam, @danny_hr, and @yasenstavrev.
Well, this escalated quickly… What was supposed to be a quick turnaround became super complicated, and here we are. A few weeks removed from the time our community dude promised to deliver the update. But it is what it is, the world keeps on spinning, and the updates keep on giving.
The Serious Sam 4 update 1.06 is finally with us, and it lays the foundation for 1.07 due before Christmas. With that being said, it’s not a huge update, but it’s not a tiny one either, with some new cool gameplay features, more characters, and additions requested by the community.
The stars of the show this time around are a quartet of characters, including the notorious gunslinger Wild Wyat (you’re welcome, Yasen), money-loving executive, and since recently, Croteam head-honcho, Fork Parker, as well as two metallic bros – Silicon Sam and Elohim’s Son!
These folks are well-trained special forces veterans, so they forced us to make some changes in the way the gadgets work. There are three new commands when using gadgets. Quick use (Z), previous gadget (N), and next gadget (M). Instead of using the old command (gadget selection), which served as a shortcut to equip gadgets, quick use equips the current gadget, fires it, and returns to the current weapon. You can also cycle gadgets without having them equipped (N and M, respectively). In the weapon wheel, you can right-click a gadget to preselect it.
By default, in this patch, the keys for using gadgets quickly are not bound, so go to Options > Keyboard and Mouse and press the Default button to bind them automatically. You can also bind them manually to any key you wish.
Hey everyone! This patch has been a long time coming, but because we made you wait so long, we have made sure that it’s a special one. It expands Serious Sam 4 with some of the features you have been requesting for a long time, even before SS4 came to be.
The 1.05 update features a Halloween special event. Find a special Jack-o’-Lantern on Death from Above, but beware. Many scary things await those who pick it up. This special event will be active through November 3, but if you miss it – shame on you – you’ll be able to check it out next year, as it’s not going away.
One of the highlights of this update is extra multiplayer skins. The ol’ Pirate Pete is back, and so is his friend Boxer Barry. The two of them are joined by the dancing bros themselves, Groovy Gregory and Dancing Denzel, but that’s not all. A brand new face has got a bone to pick with those pesky aliens, the one and only Meatless Mike.
As if dressing up in Multiplayer is not enough, you can now use all those characters in your Singleplayer adventures. And finally, all of them have their own hands in the first-person view. It’s been 84 years, we know.
Are you a collector? Maybe you’d just like to decorate your profile with some fine Serious Sam 4 imagery? Fear not, we got you covered.
From now on, all Serious Sam 4 owners are eligible to receive some shiny Steam Trading Cards. There are 15 of them, and collecting them all will award you with a cool badge. One may even have an image of Damja… ahem, Mikhail on it.
Collecting cards and crafting badges will also get you some cool profile backgrounds as well as exclusive emojis, so get collectin’.
We are extremely happy and proud to announce that Croteam has become a part of the Devolver Digital family.
Devolver has always been more than a business partner for us. Our relationship with some of the key people from Devolver goes back to the very first days of the Serious Sam series. Our fates became finally intertwined a decade ago when we were looking for a partner we could trust. And trust Devolver Digital we did.
Since those days, we have partnered with Devolver on dozens of games – from the frantic Serious Sam series to the award-winning The Talos Principle across PC, consoles, VR, and mobile platforms.
We are very excited to make our connection even deeper with this move. Here’s to many years of amazing Devolver Digital games by Croteam!
