Exclamation SS4 Pre-Order exclusive (??)

https://twitter.com/SeriousSamIAm/st...87377767018497

Seeing this, I think that a crossbow could be in Serious Sam 4, which sounds pretty exciting. What do you think? Also, I will maybe share this on the Serious Sam Fusion Steam threads later.

So now we are going to be making holes on the walls while playing with... <cough cough> did you say SS4? Shouldn't it be SSV by now?

It looks like a joke. I never wanted a crossbow for SS.

If it weren't a joke, then maybe it could at least be a plasma crossbow with two fire modes.

In fact, WHERE would anyone be able to play VR with whatever "next" SS comes out? Basements aren't higher than 7'? Ceiling fan(s) in family room? Oh, I know... OUTSIDE.

In EVERY game I have ever played with a crossbow, from farcry to vermintide and lots lots more, the crossbow is a crap weapon. It is basically like the pistol: for the first 20 to 30 minutes of gameplay, until you get a REAL weapon.
Unless there are no guns in SS4, and you only get a sword/ax for mele and the crossbow ONLY for ranged, if this is really ingame then it should only be in a very fixed 'setting', like in a flashback, or dream type sequence, or like previous said in tutorial mode.
If its in there for real throughout the entire gameplay, it will have been wasted time that could have been better served elsewhere.
I very seriously (hah) think it would ever be a chainsaw cool type of weapon.
Sorry, but this just makes me sad for SS4.

Sorry if this offends anyone, I just want my classic Sam back!

The crossbow in Half Life 1 & 2 was very powerful, serving as a high power sniper-rifle like weapon, and was very useful.

The mechanics of Serious Sam and Half Life are incredibly different though, and so I doubt the utility it might have if in fact there WAS a crossbow in a Sam game.

Will Rock had a crossbow and it was pretty badass weapon. TimeShift also had badass crossbow (maybe the one with the best design so far)...

So what will look an eventual SS4 crossbow and how it will feel - depends on CT imagination and decisions.

And neither of those games were set at the pace of a SS game.
Even in games that surrounded themselves with the idea that a crossbow HAS to be used, as soon as you get a non-crossbow weapon type, the crossbox stops getting used (at least by me, and my friends, and anyone that has played and likes action and not just sneaking, will attest to).
It just changes the pace of the game, which changes the whole SS game gameplay, to be a NOT SS game.
Get it?

Actually Will Rock is pretty straight-forward SS rip-off. Timeshift is a bit different, with battles similar to Quake 4, but still goes for "oldschool game".
