Inspired by the original Rune (2000), Rune II is set in a Norse universe during the end of days (Ragnarok). Beasts and man alike struggle to survive, and you’re going to do battle with Loki’s minions. This latest teaser shows the brutal chaos at Midgard, with vicious beasts and monsters looming in the shadows during these dark times. As Midgard’s savior, it’s up to you to kneel atop the Divine Summit and receive a blessing and abilities from the god of your choosing. It’s a race against time to prevent Loki from destroying Midgard! Rune II is still finalizing development but plans on hitting the Epic Games Store in 2019.
For more details on the story, bad guys, quests, and other items players will discover in RUNE II, join Human Head on their Twitch Channel May 24 at 3 PM CST/1PM PST for a livestream and Ask Us Anything event to see further reveals and chat with the developers.
“We’ve spent the last few years building a story-driven brutal Viking experience and evolving it with the help of our fan base,” said Human Head Studios Co-founder and CEO Chris Rhinehart. “Players return to Midgard with a sense of familiarity, but with new mechanics such as god-given abilities, open world events, crafting, a full single/co-op campaign, along with UE4 enhanced visuals, making it a true sequel to the original.”
