That's a bummer, I hope Serious Sam 5 will be better received. I was actually hoping for more Egypt.

Hold on for a second... are they announcing SS4 is going to be set in Rome/Vatikan ? It would make sense, because they already had Roman settings in Talos Principle, so they can reuse assets.

One would think that Talos reused SS4 assets, as it born out of that game.

This may sound far fetched, but there is a 0.000001% chance it could be set in Croatia. The cathedral from the Talos demo is the one from Zagreb, and some multiplayer and survival maps were also based on locations from around the country. There were also some very old Serious Engine 3 screenshots showing parts of Zagreb recreated in the engine. The stretch from the train station to the cathedral and to the parliament would make some nice Serious Sam maps, since there are many wide open squares and parks.

If I were the minister of culture or tourism, or the major of the city I would fund the game from the budget. I'm sure it would be more unique and effective marketing than commercials they pay some random agency to make. Plus the game is very popular in Russia, a market which they desperately want to attract (though I'm not sure how relations are currently, since all the mess with Ukraine).

I was talking to one of the Croteam guys one day about that, and while I don't remember the whole conversation quite well, I think he said they're not planning to make Croatia as a full playable location yet. Just as you said, they'll probably use some Croatian assets and minor locations in other maps, like they used 'em for Kairo in BFE and Rome in Talos. Or may be make something exclusively for DM/Survival again. I guess the whole reason behind that was because of the minor fame of Croatia and its famous places in comparison to France/Italy. Though I would really like to see Zagreb in the game too.

Yeah, the Zagreb and Dalmatia assets were really just engine tests and whatnot, and they decided to release the assets with the new DM maps. Kinda the same with Unfinished Complex.

It uses Talos resources, so no can do. And it's really not done yet, bunch of models to update.

Didn't Croteam allow to use assets from their games in their different games...?
Or was it stricted to SS-games only?

It's not like that. I meant that we likely won't add Talos resources to SS3, bloating it up because of a single level. And really, it was made for SS4.

Might as well... Cancel the SS4 : Prequel of the Prequel (SS4 : PP) since the story isn't st8en out, is it? Start the SS5 : Rome (SS5 : R) and then go back to SS4 : PP... like what Star Wars did.
