Serious Sam Fusion 2017 gets First and Second Encounter

serious sam fusion 2017 first and second encounter on linux plus vulkan support in gaming news

The big news floating around #VR and #Vulkan support from Croteam gaming. Hence the publisher outlines, “Chaos incarnate #Croteam and professional hype-people Devolver Digital have launched Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter. As well as Serious Sam VR: The Second Encounter on HTC Vive and Oculus Rift via Steam.”
Which is great in terms of expansion and better native support. We do not own a VR headset at all. Right now it seems to be a big costly to “play around with” for occasional gaming.

Yet the now added First Encounter and Second Encounter on Linux is great news. Even moreso seeing we have some solid Vulkan and 64-bit support now. While in our test, the Vulkan graphics change seems to have the game crashing. Right after selecting the difficulty, waiting on the loading screen, following by the “continue” option. Voila, the game crashes. Has anyone else has this issue in the Serious Sam Fusion 2017 bundle?

So now players can visit South America, ancient Mesopotamia and Medieval Europe on Linux. Of course Croteam advise bringing a chainsaw or two. Hence the dual-wield weapons or using the arsenal in deathmatch. Either way, this is a native port and that means not having to run Windows.

While Serious Sam: The Second Encounter sees a free Serious Sam Fusion 2017 update. Now bringing cross-platform co-op and other multiplayer modes (VR vs non-VR) plus Steam Workshop support. So this is a very decent update indeed. With some seriously welcomed features.

Serious: The Second Encounter is launching with a special 25% discount (until April 11th). Available on Steam for both Linux and Windows. So if you already own any other Serious Sam VR game. There’s also an additional 25% discount which is stackable.
