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.
