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.
