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.
