Serious Sam 3: BFE seriously delayed until Nov. 22

Serious Sam 3: BFE is taking an extra month to prepare for its debut and will now arrive on November 22. The time will be spent polishing the game, which was originally expected to launch October 18.

"The game is playing wonderfully and looks great, so we are going through to balance the difficulty and fine tune the code to eliminate any technical issues at launch," said Davor Hunski, Chief Creative at Croteam.

The game is currently available for pre-order on Steam and other digital distribution systems for 10 percent off. On Steam, there's an additional 10 percent off if you already own a previous Serious Sam title. There's also the "timed exclusive" of Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker as a multiplayer avatar for use in Serious Sam 3: BFE -- meaning you'll be able to shoot him over and over again for making you wait an extra month. Revenge!
