Serious Sam Collection is coming to Nintendo Switch eShop next week

Serious Sam Collection Nintendo Switch eShop release date November 17 Croteam trailer

A collection of Serious Sam games has been listed on the Nintendo Switch eShop for release next week. Serious Sam Collection consists of Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter, Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter, and Serious Sam 3: BFE. The latter two games also have DLC add-ons that are included — The Legend of the Beast for The Second Encounter and Jewel of the Nile for Serious Sam 3: BFE.

For those unaware, the Serious Sam series is all about reckless first-person shooting in massive open environments. There’s little sense to what’s going on, but it’s all in good fun. Think Doom in the desert with added screaming and shouting, and you’re about there. You’ll visit ancient Egyptian ruins and cause havoc across vast South American landscapes, where there’s an imposing scale to the environments.

The body of Croteam’s Serious Sam Collection takes place across a proper single-player / co-op campaign, but there are other modes too. There’s a four-player horde mode set on maps that are inspired by the campaign locales. Competitive multiplayer modes like Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, and more all feature as well.

Serious Sam Collection drops for Nintendo Switch on Nov. 17. At present, it’s apparently just a digital eShop release, setting you back $29.99.
