Serious Sam 3: BFE headlessly heads to PC on Oct. 18

The Good Book tells us that thou shalt not suffer a GIANT SCORPION MAN THING to live -- and fortunately for us all, we won't have to suffer for much longer. Croteam and Devolver Digital have announced that their upcoming arcadey shooter, Serious Sam 3: BFE, will arrive on PC on October 18, meaning we're a little under two months from fulfilling the mandate of the aforementioned, completely made-up scripture.

If you're planning on picking up the title, you might want to pre-order it on Steam; once reservations on the title become available on the platform, they'll save you a cool 10 percent off the final purchase price of the game.
