Microsoft’s Major Nelson has announced that this week’s Xbox Live Arcade release will be Croteam’s frivolous first person shooter Serious Sam HD.
Priced at 1200 Microsoft Points (£10.20), the game will be available to download this Wednesday (January 13th). The game was released on PC late last year.
The Serious Sam series has a cult following amongst PC, and to a lesser extent Xbox, gamers thanks to its flippant, gratuitous and non-stop action.
This new title is actually a visually enhanced remake of the IP’s first outing, Serious Sam: The First Encounter. Its follow-up, The Second Encounter, is also scheduled for a similar HD makeover with a release expected later this year.
Croteam is also working on a brand new title in the series – Serious Sam 3.
