Publisher Devolver Digital has proudly announced that 2019's 3D fighter Gorn — developed by Free Lives, the creators of the award-winning Broforce and Genital Jousting — will be released on PlayStation VR on the 19th of May, 2020. Gorn launched for Valve Index, HTC Vive, Windows Mixed Reality and Oculus Rift in July.
"For those who don’t know, Gorn is an over-the-top gladiator game with a unique, physics-driven combat engine," Producer Adone Kitching explained. "With Gorn, we wanted to make something that could only work in VR, and that took advantage of all its strengths. We wanted to embrace the chaos of a game where everything is simulated and reward the player for testing the limits of the system."
Although Gorn is a pretty brutal game, the team at Free Lives also created a special Piñata Mode, allowing more sensitive players to "smack at paper mâché enemies until their heads explode with candy."
Currently sitting at an awesome 85% score on Metacritic, Gorn is definitely worth a closer look, especially if you've already finished the recently released Half-Life: Alyx and The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners.
Without further ado, check out the launch trailer for the fast-approaching PS VR port of Gorn down below:
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 out now; compatible with the Valve Index, HTC Vive, Windows Mixed Reality and Oculus Rift headsets; coming to PS VR on May 19, 2020.
