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.

Gearbox: Borderlands 3 Will Support Cross-Play Post Launch



borderlands 3

In a recent reveal from Gearbox, Borderlands 3 was confirmed to eventually support cross-platform play.

The news came from Gearbox CEO, Randy Pitchford, via Twitter in response to fan speculation earlier in the week. While the team is looking into ways of introducing cross-play to Borderlands 3, the much-desired feature will not be available at launch. Pitchford did not disclose what timeframe players can expect to receive support.

The tweet arrived before the release of a fun musical “So Happy Together” trailer (below). The video did not show anything in terms of gameplay, though, the theme of togetherness coinciding with the cross-play news was a nice touch.

Recently, Gearbox shared some screenshots of the game’s world, so be sure to check those out here.
