Gorn 1.0 Arrives (Lamps will be broken!)

Tomorrow (18/07/19) sees Gorn the brutally hilarious VR gladiator fighting game move out of early access to version 1.0. I’ve followed the games development regularly playing while in early access for over a year and am super stoked for it to finally be released.

Its a VR only game so if you don’t own an Oculus Rift or Vive (PS VR soon!) this article is not for you. In Gorn you take the role of a Roman gladiator battling against groups of meat heads who rightly so approach you rather cautiously. Before a game beings you are presented with plethora of weapons to choose from and upon selecting your favourite you raise your hands in the air saluting Caesar to begin the fight. Don’t let the cartoonish graphics fool you this game is brutal I’ve lost count of how many hearts I’ve plucked from men’s chests with a spear or how many skulls I’ve sliced in half with the battle axe. This game comes with a massive warning, play in an open area as furniture is likely to get broken or at least smacked with flailing arms when you get overwhelmed. I took a golf swing at the free standing lamp in my living room while playing this, in game I was trying get an achievement of hitting 5 enemies out of the arena so had taken to using a 2 handed war-hammer like a 5 iron.

The game uses the pull yourself along movement system if you are familiar with VR games this most likely wont pose a challenge but can take some getting used to if you are trying VR for the first time. Depth wise Gorn has a large amount of additional weapons to unlock by defeating bosses or meeting certain kill criteria which gives the game a surprising amount of longevity. Version 1.0 brings the Crab & the “diss” track below if its anything like the rest of the game it wont be anything less than bonkers.

This game is a must for parties or introducing people to VR it comes in at £14.99 and is well worth the price for the hilarity it brings alone.
