Ammo enthusiasts Croteam and pop-gun wielding publisher Devolver Digital announced the first major update to Serious Sam VR on Steam which includes an all-new online co-op mode so players can frag the crap out of aliens with a buddy in virtual reality.
In Serious Sam VR, it is the period of the first Mental War. Earth's defense forces are crumbling under the hordes of the vicious Mental. He managed to break the will of many nations by destroying the ancient shrines of the domestic people. A fearless EDF general, Sam 'Serious' Stone, is leading the resistance from the battlecruiser 'BC Saratoga' in a desperate attempt to save the galaxy.
Players can jump in and start doling out destruction via either HTC Vive or Oculus Rift or a combination of both.
As for which players gets be Serious Sam, both will. The new co-op mode 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.
Featuring multiple levels on multiple planets, the bosses players will encounter in this virtual world are supposedly bigger, badder and uglier than have yet been encountered as Sam Stone.
Additional updates include various balance tweaks and enhancements along with two new difficulty settings: Tourist and Serious, both of which are playable in single player and co-op modes.
The new co-op mode allows for two players and works on any level in the game which is currently available on Steam Early Access for $39.99.
