One Year On From Announcement, Croteam Not Ready To Discuss Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass

Serious Sam 4

Despite announcing Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass a year ago—with near silence in the intervening period—the developer is not yet ready to divulge more information about the project.

Speaking to Wccftech at the Reboot Develop Blue 2019 conference, Croteam CTO Alen Ladavac refused to discuss any new details about the game:

“We haven’t yet started seeing any promotion and discussing what the game is about. So basically, what you got in our Reboot Develop 2019 talk is what we can show for now.”

With no further concrete statements about the game’s development process, how long until Croteam opens up is anyone’s guess.

However, representatives from the team were on stage at the conference to show off the procedural landscape technology that will fuel the development of Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass. 

The interview also canvassed that technology, with Ladavac revealing that the new technology was asked for by the developers because previous games’ landscapes had to be built manually. The new upgrade will also become a tool for developing other titles.

The studio has been adding console functionality (including Switch integration) to the game engine, which suggests that Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass will possibly come to Nintendo’s console, though, so far, only a PC release has been confirmed.

New Footage Shows Off PlayStation 5 Loading Times

Marvel's Spider-Man PlayStation 4 Loading PS5

New footage has emerged demonstrating the loading times of Sony’s upcoming PlayStation console.

The Wall Street Journal technology reporter Takashi Mochizuki posted a video on Twitter showing off the new console’s loading times in Marvel’s Spider-Man. While the PlayStation 4 Pro takes 8.1 seconds to load an area, the next generation console takes 0.83 seconds.

The video also demonstrates the speed at which the upcoming console loads the game world in Marvel’s Spider-Man; while the PS4 Pro stutters while loading in the buildings of the open world, the next generation console speeds through the world without any noticeable lag.

Check out the full video below.

Sony confirmed the first details of its upcoming console last month, revealing that it will be backwards compatible and feature much more advanced technology than the PS4. OnlySP’s Daniel Pereira felt that the beefy specifications may not be entirely necessary for the console.

A sequel to Marvel’s Spider-Man may be in the works, if recent job advertisements at Insomniac Games are any indication.
