Rune Multiplayer/Patch News
9:27 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Not content to rest on their laurels, Westlake Interactive has updated their news page with a progress report on Rune, a hack-and-slash 3rd person 3D adventure game. The multiplayer expansion set, Halls of Valhalla, is currently in beta testing. Usable both as an add-on to the original game as well as a stand-alone multiplayer game in its own right, HOV adds a ton of new maps, characters and some new game types for players who just can't swing their swords enough. One of the games, endearingly entitled "Head Ball," has players running around an arena while attempting to sever the heads of their opponents and toss them into their respective goals to score points. Variations of this include the abiltiy score points with hacked-off limbs as well.

Also currently being tested is the Rune 1.07 patch, which contains a ton of bug fixes and game tweaks, including the ability to block thrown weapons with shields, faster defenses in general, and a new player model named Jun. This patch will be available as a free download in the next few weeks.

For the full story, be sure to check out the full write-up at Westlake's Rune status page.
