"Ludicrously Violent" VR Gladiator Game 'GORN' Out Today On Quest

"Ludicrously Violent" VR Gladiator Game 'GORN' Out Today On Quest

The gladiator simulator from Broforce creator Free Lives, described by the developer as "ludicrously violent", is out today on Oculus Quest. (Warning: the following article contains mature content.)

At the beginning of these articles, I like to embed a trailer. The GORN trailer is age-gated on YouTube, so I'll link it here instead.

You know what fills me with rage? The blatant lack of gratuitous violence on the Oculus Quest store. Sure, there's plenty of violence in Quest games, but nothing as absolutely terrifying as that of GORN, the gladiator simulator from Broforce developer Free Lives.

Fair warning going forward, the developers describe the content of the title as follows:

This game may contain content not appropriate for all ages, or may not be appropriate for viewing at work: Frequent Violence or Gore, General Mature Content

The critically-acclaimed title, which was first launched on Steam's Early Access service in 2017, has made waves on Steam, Rift & PSVR since then. Now, developer Free Lives is bringing the carnage to Quest for the first time. I couldn't be more excited.

The selling point is, of course, the outrageous level of cartoon violence contained in this physics-driven arena combat sim. You can smash up your foes with an array of colosseum weaponry - swords, maces, bows, and nunchuks to name but a few.

This is one I couldn't recommend enough. Get yourself over to the Oculus Store to get your hands on this incredible single-player battle simulator.

And if you're wanting a workout - without the carnage, gore and dismemberment - then why not try out the new Boxing & Dancing DLC available today for FitXR on Oculus Quest.
