Rune Early Access Period Cancelled, Full Game Launch Window To Be Revealed “Very Shortly”

Published

Rune

Launch plans for the upcoming Rune sequel have changed dramatically, with the game no longer utilising an Early Access release.

Developer Human Head Studios made the announcement via Twitter earlier this weekend, saying the game will receive a version 1.0 launch “later this year.”

The statement mentions that the change comes “through securing additional funding sources,” but provides no further details. The apparent caginess has led numerous fans on Twitter to assume the developer has signed an exclusivity deal for the Epic Games Store, following the likes of Close to the Sun, Borderlands 3, and Phoenix Point.

Whether such assumptions prove true or not, the team expects to divulge “a launch time frame very shortly.” Furthermore, Rune will reportedly be supported by a “strong roadmap” of post-release updates and additions.

The news marks the first major update from Human Head regarding the status of the game since November 2018. Prior to that, the game was scheduled to enter Early Access on September 19, 2018, though that was delayed to winter 2018—a period now passed.

Around the same time, OnlySP spoke to Human Head about its intentions and goals with the game, and that interview is available here.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Will Show Unexplored Stories of Secondary Characters

Published

 on

The luminary creator of the Dragon Ball manga, Akira Toriyama, shared new information about the upcoming action RPG, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.

Via the Bandai Namco Twitter account, Toriyama revealed that Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will depict the backstories of several secondary protagonists. This means that the game will diverge from the story of the manga and give greater insight into Dragon Ball‘s many supporting characters. While a plethora of games depict the events of the Dragon Ball franchise, only a few of them meaningfully expand upon the story’s events, characters, and world.

Toriyama describes Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot as a “fresh new take on the franchise.” Even though Toriyama rarely contributes to Dragon Ball games, he did create much of the lore in the now-defunct MMO Dragon Ball Online, which heavily influenced the story of the Dragon Ball Xenoverse games. While not much information is available about Kakarot and Toriyama’s involvement at this time, the title does have an early 2020 release date and a fishing mechanic.
