The Fusion 2017 will be a free update for all owners of the Serious Sam games, both "flat" and VR

The update will bring a cross game mods support, and enable multiplayer mode between the "flat" and VR games, so the players from the SSVR: The First Encounter and The First Encounter HD can team up and play co-op or versus each other. It will be released gradually, starting with The First Encounter, followed by The Second Encounter and Serious Sam 3: BFE.

The last feature to be added is going to make it possible to ship the updated code towards all titles more easily and regularly.
