Mac Rune: Halls of Valhalla Finds Publisher
9:55 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
Helpful IMG reader Andrew "Quetzal" Plucker directed us to a forum post by Tim Gerritsen of Human Head which confirms that Rune: Halls of Valhalla will be published by Take Two Interactive in the near future. As you might remember, on June 15th we brought you the news that the port of Mac Rune: HoV had been completed by Westlake Interactive but was on hold due to the fact that the once Mac-friendly publisher Gathering of Developers had entered an agreement to shift their Mac titles to MacSoft for publication. Rune: HoV was not one of the titles MacSoft picked up, so it was momentarily in limbo.
The post by Gerritsen seems to suggest we will know very soon as to when we can expect this expansion pack on shelves:
Take Two has told me that they will be publishing the Mac HOV, but the guy who needs to work out the details with me is on vacation this week. I will post new news when I have it. Hang in there.Rune: HoV is no mere expansion pack. Although it does contain many of new maps, models and gameplay tweaks for the third-person action/adventure game Rune, it can also function as a complete game if all you want is online play. Watch this space for more details as the final publisher and publishing date is revealed, and check our past articles on the subject for details. The release of a patch for Mac Rune which will bring that game to version 1.0.7 should arrive at the same time this expansion is released.
