Ages ago, I beat up a gormless giant who wanted to hit me with their maces. Honestly? It was a lot of fun, and a great way to pass the time at the conference. Well, GORN is now coming out!

Free Lives (Broforce, Genital Jousting) and Devolver Digital have announced a blood oath partnership on GORN, the highly anticipated VR gladiator simulator, with plans to release the game on Vive via Steam Early Access on July 10th.

GORN is a violent VR gladiator simulator. To put it very, very simply. GORN combatants will be able to creatively execute their most violent gladiatorial fantasies, which includes chopping people and beating up people into spurts of blood and gore. (Yay.)

A bloody mess of a game

The company calls it the ‘most brutal and savage VR face-smashing game ever produced by man.’ Well, it’s not inaccurate at least.

“The Devolver Digital VR Division spent over a half million dollars to research what consumers wanted in a next generation virtual reality experience and the results were unanimous – they want to rip off someone’s arm and then beat that someone to death with said arm,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker.

Have a dive, it’s worth it.
