Gladiatorial VR Sim 'GORN' Leaves the Shackles of Early Access

Blood, Dirt, and Nipples in Glorious VR

SOUTH AFRICA – Independent developer Free Lives (Broforce, Genital Jousting) and virtual game publisher Devolver Digital (also Broforce, Genital Jousting) have announced that VR sensation GORN has smashed out of Early Access and launched as GORN v1.0 on SteamVR and Oculus!

GORN is a ludicrously violent VR gladiator simulator featuring a unique, fully physics driven combat engine where combatants creatively execute their most violent colosseum fantasies in virtual reality. The acclaimed VR game entered Early Access in 2017 to high praise and huge success despite players propensity to smash screens and tear down light fixtures in the heat of battle. One player even dislocated their knee cap. Damage to personal property notwithstanding, GORN went on to become one of the top ten VR games in sales and one of the top three in user reviews on Steam during Early Access.

Free Lives spent the past two years adding in everything from new weapons and opponents to local cooperative modes and even a custom language within the GORN universe. That last one is a joke that frankly just got out of hand until they had a full language and a five-track hip-hop EP in said language. The final update in Early Access brings an ultimate showdown with a longtime nemesis, a new weapon, and more alongside SteamVR Index support and slew of fixes and tweaks.

“Our team couldn’t be more pleased to see the continuation of Free Lives’ unbelievable streak of turning weird ass ideas into commercially and critically successful games,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker.

Metal Wolf Chaos XD Believes in your Own Justice August 6

Of All Man's Achievements in the 21st century, This is the Climax

Patriotic gamers from all over the world can pre-order the upgraded re-release for $24.99 and receive an exclusive mech suit skin on their platform of choice

The country is in peril as President Michael Wilson defends the nation against a full-scale rebellion lead by Vice-President Richard Hawk and the mechanized legions he commands. As the 47th President of the United States, it is your sworn duty to take your country back by any means necessary and end this unjust coup d’état! Battle in your advanced mech - armed to the teeth - across iconic American landscapes including the Brooklyn Bridge, the Grand Canyon, and the front steps of the White House.

FromSoftware originally released Metal Wolf Chaos in December 2004, appearing exclusively on the original Xbox and only in Japan.

Devolver Digital Museum of Oddities

Devolver Digital is celebrating our 10th year in existence so we're setting up a modest little museum that will house some of the odder or quirky things that have been produced or shelved over our history. Go hands-on with a canceled prototype spin-off of Hotline Miami that used procedurally generated levels to tell the story of Richter form the original game. Check out weird marketing props, amazing original pieces from Special Reserve Games, and little bits of nostalgia that aren't available outside of this museum.
