New Rune Music, Alpha Date
1:29 PM | Toby Allen | Comment on this story

3D Action Planet's fan site Ragnarok has posted several exclusive new music tracks from Human Head's upcoming melee-style combat game, Rune. These tracks are in MP3 format. Previously Human Head mentioned their intentions for the genre of Music that will feature in Rune; they stated their desire to preserve the atmosphere of the Viking time period with a combination of very atmospheric sound and authentic music;. These tracks are a good example of what the music will be like for the final version of this third-person game. As we noted earlier today, if you are lucky enough to attend MWNY, you will be able to play Rune at the Gathering of Developers booth on 3dfx Voodoo5 hardware. You can be sure IMG will be among the first in line to lop off some heads (virtual ones, of course.)

In related news, Fastest Game News Online has noted that Rune is due to go 'alpha' (which of course means that development is well along and gameplay tweaking can begin) on August first. Westlake Interactive is handling the Mac port of Rune for Gathering of Developers, and we expect a delay of only one or two weeks between the release of the Mac and PC versions of this title later this Fall.
