Valley of the Kings is the fourth level of Serious Sam: The First Encounter, Serious Sam: Xbox, Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter, Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter, and Serious Sam Classics: Revolution.

Plot[edit | edit source]

After capturing the second element, Sam must now fight his way through the Valley of the Kings to the Chambers of Horus, where he will find the Fire Element.

Secrets[edit | edit source]

  1. Blow up all the statues in the level (five in total): this will automatically reveal secret #3.
  2. In the room after you pick up the Thompson, once past the door on the front on the left, and you're up the ramp, turn right and look at the corner, you will see a bounce pad. Use the bounce pad to be catapulted onto a platform on the ceiling of the room. Collect the secret armor on the platform.
  3. (HD and VR only) Once near the rope bridge in the end, turn right, and follow the health pill path. You will come across a giant spherical rock sticking out of the wall. Shoot it with a rocket to reveal a secret teleport. The rock can only be destroyed if you blow up all the statues in the level.
  4. (HD and VR only) After going through the teleport, go through the cave's exit. This will lead you to Moon Mountains.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • The Mamut can be seen in a pre-release screenshot of this level, along with other scrapped enemies.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • When passing through the 'Wall of Darkness' in Serious Sam: Xbox, creepy music similar to the music that plays when the Exotech Larva emerges will play.
  • In Serious Sam 1 and Serious Sam Classics: Revolution, to get to the Moon Mountains, there was a platform-swing that you had to jump on to get across the river and there were nine statues to destroy (five throughout the level and four by the element). In Serious Sam: Xbox, it is done via a cinematic, where Gnaars are apparently filming a movie, and they keep stopping and redoing it to annoy Sam, who then pulls out his minigun and kills them all and destroys their set. In Serious Sam HD, there's a teleporter that you can use to get to the other side of the river.
