Blood and Guts Aplenty in the Newest Serious Sam: BFE Trailer

on November 17, 2011 9:00 PM

The newest trailer for Serious Sam 3: BFE is chock-full of — what else? — blood and guts. So it’s fitting that those two elements are incorporated into the video clip’s title.

I don’t know about you, but whenever I see footage for the next entry in the Serious Sam franchise, I can’t help but smile because it reminds me of the days when exploding heads were all too common in games. Nowadays, you’ve got these fancy cover systems and “realistic” animations dominating the shooter market where gratuitous violence has been replaced by life-like body movements.

Serious Sam is one of those refreshing changes of pace where, for once, the development team isn’t taking itself too seriously. They’re just out to have fun. Let’s just hope the fun doesn’t stop when we pop the disc into our consoles or download it for our PCs. BFE is set to release this Tuesday, Nov. 22. Check out the trailer after the jump.
