Timelock Studio and Croteam have teamed up to jointly develop Serious Sam: Siberian Mayhem, a standalone expansion to the popular FPS series. The shooter will be published by the prolific Devolver Digital and will launch for PC on January 25.
As the name suggests, Serious Sam: Siberian Mayhem will see players fight their way through Russian landscapes as they prepare to catch General Brand. There are five missions in total set in various locations including forests, arctic shores, abandoned towns, and even a ghost town. Players will also find various side quests to tackle in which Sam Stone will meet and work with some of the Siberian locals.
Siberian Mayhem will feature a ton of new enemies and bosses to shoot at and an arsenal of new weapons to take them down. Players can use the instantly recognizable AK-47 assault rifle or take a slightly more methodical approach to assassination with Perun, an experimental crossbow. In addition to the new weapons, there are also several new gadgets and vehicles to take advantage of, including snowmobiles and mechs.
Interestingly, Serious Sam: Siberian Mayhem started out as a community-developed project that Timelock Studio had worked on for a while. However, Croteam took a personal interest in the game and guided the modding team throughout the development process.
