Thus the game combines first-person shooter mechanics with elements of RPG and an extensive hacking system. Most of changes the remake brings are related to the visuals.

In terms of gameplay, Serious Sam 4 remains faithful to the core mechanics of the series - the player once again eliminates entire hordes of enemies using a wide array of diversified weapons. What has changed however, is the approach to the players, who are now given significantly more freedom and huge open maps where even more dark creatures await them. When it comes to technology, the game is powered by Serious Engine 4, the improved version of the original, accompanied by motion capture and photogrammetry technologies.
