The game showcases 43 single-player levels, multiplayer deathmatch and team deathmatch modes, 21 different multiplayer characters, and 5 multiplayer mutator modes, among other unique and titillating options. Rune uses an enhanced version of the Unreal Tournament Engine to offer a new particle effects system and a new melee-combat focused AI. For more information on Rune, visit www.runegame.com.
