Description

It's the mid-21st century. The planet has fallen into ruin as street gangs have grown so powerful that they control neighborhoods and the more powerful ones control entire cities. Desperately trying to reclaim power, the U.S. government develops a highly advanced combat training simulator.

In the world of Gore, you are a soldier who has just entered the training program. As you begin bootcamp, the gangs hack into the training simulation with intent to use it for themselves. What ensues is a life and death struggle that will determine the future of the entire planet.

Screenshots

Gore: Ultimate Soldier Windows The OptikNERV virus, aka OptikBoss, bears a not-so-subtle resemblance to another cybernetic demon from an earlier, much more well known first person shooter.
Gore: Ultimate Soldier Windows There are only a handful of enemy models...
Gore: Ultimate Soldier Windows The MOB Flamethrower trooper is the strongest non-boss enemy in the game, but because of his simplistic AI he's got lousy friendly-fire control and will even immolate himself if you just run away from him.
Gore: Ultimate Soldier Windows It's Gore Vs. Army of Darkness in front of the haunted mansion. Good thing you've got a rocket launcher.
