Good plan. Instead, the whole game should take place in Greenland.

@ClownWarrior: TSE didn't take place in Egypt, you mean SS First Encounter.

TSE took place in South America; which has pyramids too from the Mayas, Babylon, Ancient Persia & Medieval Age.

@Mongo: Couldn't imagine that Sam was always limited to Earth.

Non-Egypt i agree to, one exception Egypt or Near/ Middle East in Medieval Age at Islam periode. But that won't fit in right or more in SS3 BFE.

What about SS4 The Next Road Movie Encounter (not For Enemies only) [SS4 TNRMEFE]:

Intro: We start with a Big Space Battle with Capt. Sam, then we see Actionscenes out of all former SS Parts. Then we see some of Mental's Alien Troops racing through Mexico, drinking Whiskey + shooting around. Camera switchs over to a Bar where all SS Cover hanging on the walls. Sam sitting on the Bar and Drinks, besides him sits and drink Gordon Freeman and says nothing. Then a few Soldiers come in and Sam following them.

Before 1. Mission starts to Timeportals which are placed in a Big Pyramid, you have to shoot your way to the Pyramid. All secrets take place in Egypt, some of them are complete levels.

The Story evolves themself like 'Indiana Jones and the last Crusade' with Duke as Sam Father. In every Cutscenes will be Atomic Bombs explodes in evry 30 seconds.
And there will be very much exploding Spaceships and a lot of Battles with Alcohol.

Also what about using T-Mechs as Mechs for Sam?

One important thing if you think on 1999 in serbia or at NATO and what they want from us, aren't we helpful in defense in Afganistan? As oppotunity to Endouring Freedom from the USA. I said yes and we help to build things up.

Back to Topic: A Biker story/parody around Billie Bob is a good idea in SS4 too.

They need to make a stereotypical Samurai & Ninja for multiplayer models.

Replace the sniper with some king of railgun combined with crossbow. RAPTOR 3000 Crossbow or something like this.
Add beam fire mode as secondary fire mode to the Lasergun.
Serious Bombs must return, but will harm the player too. They just will have very high explosion wave. yeah, they can make some mushroom cloud for the spectacular view.
Flamethrower, Grenade Launcher, Mutilator, Hammer, Axe, Knife, Chainsaw - just put them in the game, even like a only secret weapons. Will be cool.
Large side areas for exploring. Secret levels. Ancient worlds with sacred temples whic morphs into alien technology - like the morph room in the Great Pyramid in FE.
Map style loading screen. Mental as final boss. If not in the main game, to be final boss in the Expansion. Yeah, expansion - not DLCs.

Idea for coop, or a separate type of coop from the normal one: Have each multiplayer character be selectable only by one player, and have different HUD and weapon selection. For example Sam finds a desert eagle, Fast-finger Freddy finds a single-action revolver on the same place It would be even cooler if the multiplayer characters are from other famous games and have their weapons from there, for example imagine the guy from Quake 2 finding railgun instead of sniper rifle and BFG instead of cannon Though it would be hard to avoid copyright I suppose, but even with the classic multiplayer characters they can think of something

P.S. Actually that could work for fragmatch too, the balancing there is bad anyway

Eh, do you know how many multiplayer characters there are in Sam? That would be a bit much I would assume if they were to give each character their own gun model for EACH gun. Maybe something unique in ability to each character would be cooler.

Coop idea:
Each player model to have own model for hands and sounds. Like in Q3.

That'd be a cool turn on/off option for MP. But...different HUDs for all player models? Sounds like too much work to be done. Just one special ability / weapon for every character would be enough.

Speaking of HUDs, I'd like an ingame option that would allow you to change your HUD's color.

Cool Re: Serious Sam 4 ideas ?

I hope SS4 will keep the appearance of SS3 (weapons, ennemies), but with more challenging maps (like SS-TSE) : a lot of waves of ennemies, difficult to beat, a reward after a wave (health, ammo, weappons), another wave etc..

and many survival maps easier to play than in SS3 (maps where we could stay alive more than 5-10 minutes)

I didn't like SS2 (spirit, weapons, ennemies)

I think SS4 should have a special mode maker. Like where there are several options which allow you to create your very own wanted experience within the game. More or less like survival I think, but with choosing what enemies/weapons/items to spawn. And how many of them would also be nice (spawn rate). Choosing whether iron sights/sprint are allowed, allowing the player to choose his jump height and run speed. This is something I truly long for in a Serious Sam game. Would really give a lot of replay value if there are enough maps. And Zumbuls and Zorgs.

Whatever SS4 will be, one thing I do hope for is more level variety. SS3 got very tiring for me towards the end, there weren't enough gimmicks to vary it up that SE for instance did fairly well with the whole trapped temples, weird gravity, slippery floors and such. It shouldn't be one long episode of the same environment like BFE. Optimally every level should have some "theme" it's based around on, not just in terms of the graphics, but how it affects gameplay.

While TFE is also one long episode of the same enviroment, I think it's saved by the fact that every level feels unique, which sets it apart the others and makes 'em more memorable. Unfortunately, that's not the case with BFE's levels, maybe except for The Silent Riddler and The Guardian of Time, imo.
For the next SS game, I hope they'll make it more TSE-ish in terms of gameplay and enviroments, with a mix of JotN-ish in terms of unlinearity. Asides from that, Sam being a silly hero in a serious world (like SS1 and JotN) again would be great. ...and hopefully no more Egypt.

Did someone read the Story of The Crossing, that game from Arkane Studio with Crossgaming Experience.

Or Croteam builds SS4 after Custom Maps up, could be awesome too.

Or some Sort of Borderlands in the whole Sirian Galaxy, which can be mixed with Crossgaming and no i'm not explaining the world 'crossgaming'.

Also it would be cool to see Mentals Home Base as level.

Btw, me reminds Greendale with its Medival Gates on TSE and the second Planet Kleer Level on TSE. Seems for me like same Level Design Concept with Variation.

^More like, it should have full support for mods with SDK that includes source code from the game, just like SS1.

@GOG,

No. Mods shouldn't be required that. Plus it would be inconvenient to have to wait, download and arrange the mods properly each time to decide on what gameplay you want. SS4 having that mode would be awesome. i look at this like halo's firefight in SS.
