The promise of virtual reality is experiencing games like never before. GORN aims to take the adrenaline rush of bloody gladiatorial combat and place the gamer front and center.
GORN is a ludicrously violent VR gladiator simulator, made by Free Lives, the developers of Broforce and Genital Jousting. Featuring a unique, fully physics driven combat engine, GORN combatants will be able to creatively execute their most violent gladiatorial fantasies in virtual reality. Savagely strike down an infinite supply of poorly-animated opponents with all manner of weapons – from swords, maces, and bows to nunchuks, throwing knives, massive two-handed warhammers or even your blood-soaked bare hands. The only limits to the carnage are your imagination and decency, in the most brutal and savage VR face-smashing game ever produced by man.
GORN is currently 25% off on Steam, putting the game at $14.99. For a look at what to expect, check out the launch trailer below.
GORN seems like the type of game which would be more fun to play in VR than in a standard way. The physicality and visceral feel of slaying enemies seems to be enhanced by the medium. I also really enjoyed the launch trailer.
