RUNE Interview
9:29 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

The Corporation has posted another interview conducted at the recent Macworld Expo NY, this time with Tim Gerritsen of Human Head. This two-page Q&A covers HH's upcoming third-person melee combat game, Rune. As we observed at MWNY, Rune features amazing graphics, excellent camera control and a setting steeped in Norse mythology. Here's a clip from the Q&A about multiplayer features that might be included in the game:

Are there any planned multiplayer elements?

Yes. Its going to have Deathmatch out of the box. Were trying to get as much cooperative in as we can. Were on a tight deadline in, so not everything is guaranteed. Well try to do what we can, but we are going to do it after release.

It will be very interesting to see how dethmatch plays with this third-person perspective and no ranged weapons. Rune thrilled the crowd at Macworld just as much as it impressed us at E3 last Spring, and we are very thankful Westlake Interactive is working on making it a near-simultaneous release. The PC version should be out in October, with the Mac version following later that month, both published by Gathering of Developers.
