ZAGREB, CROATIA October 20, 2010 – Hordes of Serious Sam fans and would-be level designers around the world can now have a hand in the creation of Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter’s chaotic battlefields with the release of Serious Editor 3 Beta through a free update on Steam. Serious Sam fans can use the powerful Serious Editor 3 Beta to build single player, co-op and multiplayer maps for Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter and share them with other PC gamers around the globe. Aspiring game designers can also create their own objects and structures for placement in their custom environments to give each creation their own signature mark.
“Both Serious Sam fans and those nasty forum trolls always tell us that anyone could make a better campaign level or multiplayer map than us,” said an anonymous level designer at Croteam. “Well prove it, ladies. Knock yourselves out.”
To celebrate the launch of Serious Editor 3 Beta on Steam, Croteam and Devolver Digital will monitor the most popular multiplayer maps online and shower their creators with exquisite gifts and bottomless praise.
