Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter, the second facelift for the classic run-pray-and-spray series, is now available as a PC download according to Croteam.
Like the first revitalization, Second Encounter boasts new secrets to find, a new co-operative mode to explore, and 16-player hyper frag action. Of course the reason you'll want to play is in an attempt to rediscover the reason why you loved the game way back in the 2001 -- the same year Activision acquired Treyarch and Sega of America sued the hell out of a pre-Martha Stewart K-Mart. Check below the fold for all the new features and whatnot.
