Croteam Tells Us All About Serious Sam 3’s Achievements (Well, Almost)
Even though Serious Sam 3: BFE is more than a week away from release, Croteam has seen fit to hand us a list of all the achievements available in the game’s console release.
The nature of the game’s achievements runs from the usual “Good job! You beat the game!” and “Kill X amount of X monster” type to, well, I guess I can’t really say for fear of revealing spoilers to those of you who wish to remain pure until Nov. 22. If you’re curious to see what kind of acts will earn you Gamerscore and a PlayStation trophy or two, go ahead and click past the jump. I dare you. Unfortunately, we weren’t given the exact point value or trophy rank for any given achievement, so you’ll have to deduce that on your own.
And, just in case you were wondering: The BFE in the title stands for “Before First Encounter,” which makes Serious Sam 3 a prequel to the first game, which was released in 2001.
The achievement icons, pictured above, might also give you some clues as to how to win some of Croteam’s adulation. You can read up on the latest in the shooter series thanks to our own Isshak Ferdjani here.
