Default Will Serious Sam 4 use Serious Engine 4 or 3.5?

And if it'll be Serious Engine 4, what features will be removed compared to previous engines?

(It's been kind of trend where something is removed. For an example, directional gravity was removed after Serious Engine 1)

Solais can correct me if I'm wrong, but my understanding is that Croteam has (more or less) dropped the SE## format for engines since SE3. It sounds like they've refocused from rebuilding a new engine for every major SS release and instead adding features / fixing bugs for the current engine. So SS4 will be basically something like SE3.75 (Talos used 3.5, then there's SSVR)

The big question is will SS4 be just an add-on for Fusion, or there will be and separate version.

I don't see a reason for CT to release a separate version as long as they'll keep Fusion always updated and thus the games which Fusion includes will never get obsolete or die.

Except you get Serious Sam: Fusion for free if you own any of the main games except Classic and 2, and even if you don't it's €15. If Croteam puts Serious Sam 4 in Fusion they'll go out of business. Expect a standalone title at probably €40.

If Croteam will add Serious Sam 4 to Fusion (which I guess it will), it will likely happen years after they finished making content (like dlc).

Wait, I thought that Fusion is free, but if you wan't an access to a SS title in Fusion you must buy it. So they can release it with Fusion as DLC for 40$. It looks realistic to me.

Also they will have to support two versions of the engine in this period, which is a bit too much work imo.

As far as I know the engine workflow is automated now and Croteam can roll important updates to all major engine versions without much extra trouble.
