Majesco has told Eurogamer that Serious Sam will return this summer on Xbox Live Arcade.

Late summer, specifically, for 1200 Microsoft Points (GBP 10.20 / EUR 14.40).

Dubbed Serious Sam HD, the game will re-imagine The First Encounter, and be created by original developer Croteam.

The chaotic first-person shooter, where enemies spawn and overwhelm from every angle, will return with online co-op for four friends. The surreal Egyptian setting will be spread across 12 levels, and we're promised dazzling, revamped visuals.

The charm of Serious Sam, which first appeared on PC in 2001, forms around controlling the swarms of baddies that are triggered when collecting ammo or reaching a new areas. There are bulls that charge, headless baddies that blow-up, ranged attackers, skeletal horse monsters and enormous bosses.

Sam's arsenal is as over-the-top as the situation, but deciding what to use and what to kill while dodging and scrapping is another matter. It's brilliant.

As for PC version:

German publisher CDV has announced a PC version of Serious Sam HD, which was revealed earlier today for Xbox Live Arcade.

The PC game will be released digitally and in shops this autumn, Eurogamer Germany reports. The console version, however, will be out this summer.

CDV also revealed that Serious Sam HD will be built on the Serious Engine 3, which was announced two years ago alongside a third Serious Sam game. We've heard little on either since.

Head over to our Serious Sam HD gallery for some screenshots.

Seriously, I'm completely stoked about it! I'm so getting it on 360 and PC when it comes out.

::rofl: @ BSOD_Box. Even though I haven't seen a BSOD in ages. Well Prototype did when i messed with the SLI profile, but that was my fault. ::o:

Hope I'm not missing anything in the reading. I wonder if the PC version will have co-op as well.

This game was amazing back in the day, CO-OP online was the s***!, I also remember coming back from school jsut to plapy this and also play coop with my brother.

When the game came out I believe it was only 20 dollars, so I hope its similarly priced.

SS:SE was clearly one of the best games ever. That game rocked my 12 year old body so hard I jumped into puberty.

If it was coming that soon, you would think a preorder would be up by now.

Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter is now available for a 10% pre-purchase discount on Steam.

$17.99 is not bad at all. I'm so buying it.
