Serious Sam Wiki

Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter, Serious Sam VR: The Second Encounter, or Serious Sam VR, are a set of two first-person shooter virtual reality video games developed by Croteam and published by Croteam and Devolver Digital. They are the first virtual reality games in the Serious Sam series.


Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter and Serious Sam VR: The Second Encounter are virtual reality versions of Serious Sam HD that utilizes a newer version of the Serious Engine, Serious Engine 2017. Like the HD versions, Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter and Serious Sam VR: The Second Encounter were released as two separate games. All of the enemies from Serious Sam 1 and the HD versions are present in the games, as well as the same bosses.

All of the same weapons, items and power-ups are also included in SSVR, and weapons can now be dual-wielded. This makes it possible for the player to hold the cannon in one hand and the rocket launcher in the other. That way, the player can decimate large hordes of enemies much more easily. The game's HUD has changed as well; instead of the HUD showing the player's ammo count on the bottom right corner of the screen, it is now shown as blue displays on top of the player's weapons.

The player can explore the levels using trackpad movement, or with the built-in teleportation system and move quickly to avoid charging enemies with Sam's personal translocator device. This can also be tweaked and adjusted to the way the player moves through the VR space to best suit their playing experience using Croteam's Serious Warp locomotion.[1]

With the release of Serious Sam Fusion, Serious Sam VR was included in the compilation, along with Serious Sam 3: BFE and Serious Sam 3 VR: BFE. As Fusion includes both HD and VR versions, this makes it possible for VR players to play with those who don't have virtual reality headsets.


The same game modes from Serious Sam HD are included in Serious Sam VR. Classic co-op returns, where you can play with up to 15 other players in various cooperative and versus modes. Coin-op co-op, beast hunt, last man standing, deathmatch, team deathmatch, insta-kill, team beast hunt, survival, capture the flag, and my burden are also included in both games.
