Is it safe to say that modding is about to get… serious?
Serious Sam 4 and the modding community are no stranger to one another, but now it appears as though that relationship has been made official, as Croteam has announced the launch of a suite of official Serious Sam 4 modding tools in Serious Editor 2021.
Powered by the Serious Engine, Serious Editor 2021 is the latest and greatest (at least one would assume) version of the Serious Editor and comes with numerous improvements and new tech features, including a brand-new terrain editor, improved battle systems, vehicle support, and upgraded scripting tools.

- HORDES OF INVADERS – The iconic cast of alien invaders returns with some new reinforcements! Fight your way through unbelievable numbers of Mental’s minions, including the iconic Headless Kamikaze, Beheaded Rocketeer, Kleer, Scrapjack, Werebull, and Khnum! Square off against brand new enemies and towering monsters like the frantic Processed, repulsive Belcher, the hard-hitting Zealot, and more.
- EXPLOSIVE ARSENAL – Armed with a slew of devastating weapons, pick your tool for any situation. Lay waste to Mental’s Horde using the powerful double-barreled shotgun, the punishing minigun, the powerful chainsaw launcher, a brand new auto shotgun, and the iconic cannon. Upgrade your toys, and enjoy the violent beauty of the lock-on rocket launcher, and the mighty laser beam of death.
- COOPERATIVE MAYHEM – Smash through the action-packed campaign with friends in 4-player online co-op mode! Tackle exciting primary missions and thrilling side quests in modified difficulties for an extra challenge.
- LEGION SYSTEM – Serious Sam 4 unleashes some of the biggest moments in the series’ history with the new Legion System and battlefields teeming with thousands of enemies!
“Modders have always been the backbone of our community, expanding Serious Sam games with crazy modifications of all shapes and sizes. Some of the total conversion mods we have played throughout the years were absolutely impressive and have kept our games alive for years,” said Croteam CCO and Serious Sam 4 project lead Davor Hunski. “We can’t wait to see what the modding community has in store for Serious Sam 4.”
Both Serious Sam 4 and Serious Editor 2021 are available on PC via Steam. Are you looking to diving headfirst into some official Serious Sam 4 mods yourself? Let us know in the comments below!
