Serious Sam 3 packshot image
Serious Sam 3: Before First Encounter is an upcoming first-person shooter video game in development by Croteam. It will be the latest game in the Serious Sam series and a prequel to the original game, Serious Sam: The First Encounter. Serious Sam 3: BFE will be set in Egypt and feature a 16-player co-operative campaign mode. The game is set for release in Q3 2011 on PC and unspecified consoles. Thus far, the only logical interpretation of "BFE" has been "Before First Encounter"; given the fact "Serious Sam Stone" was sent back in time through the Time Lock to destroy the evil sent by Mental. Considering the setting is based on Earth, it would only make sense that the events unraveling in Serious Sam 3, are those that brought Serious Sam to the "First Encounter" in the first place.
Serious Sam 3 GPU Frames Per Second Chart

Our objective is to build an accurate Serious Sam 3 frame rate chart that lets PC gamers select from any Nvidia or AMD graphics card series. In this beta feature we provide Serious Sam 3 FPS data, displayed based on a default screen resolution of 1080p.

Premium members can adjust the charts game graphics settings and select multiple graphics card series for frame rate comparison. For example, if you want to quickly compare frame rates for Serious Sam 3 between AMD Radeon RX-500 Series versus FPS for Nvidia’s GeForce 20 Series, then you can see those results displayed below.

Serious Sam 3 User Submitted Frame Per Second Results

Our next development is focused on incorporating our bespoke machine learning code that continues to enhance these Serious Sam 3 frames per second results as more and more of you (PC gamers) submit your own frame rates. Submitted frame rates will automatically be processed, removing anomalies and building increasingly reliable game FPS from all the good data until the performance graph above is pinpoint accurate. The more benchmarks you submit, the more confident we can be in the FPS prediction data across all games and hardware.
