Rune Preview at PC.IGN
5:42 PM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

PC.IGN sat down with Human Head Studio's Tim Gerritson to talk about their upcoming third person Viking game, Rune. The preview offers an in-depth look at the game's single and multiplayer experience. Here are some of the gory details:

...it's possible to remove the limbs of your enemies. Also, amazingly enough, your AI driven foes will react to those events in kind. As Gerritsen tells us, "a goblin that gets its shield arm removed will continue to fight you, but if you cut off it's sword arm, it'll run for the hills." All in all, the best option in any battle is to pick up your favorite bladed weapon and go for the head of your opponent. A well-placed neck shot will send your foe to the great beyond faster than anything else, unless you start messing with Rune Powers...
The Unreal-engine game is being ported to the the Macintosh by none other than Westlake Interactive. Rune is due out during the Fall.
