Rune: Ragnarok

Human Head Studios has announced Rune: Ragnarok, an open-world RPG sequel to its 2000-released Rune.

The game is set in a “dangerous universe where gods, beasts, and the last remaining humans struggle to survive,” and “combines brutal melee combat with rich, Norse-inspired mythology.”

Here’s an overview of the game, via Human Head Studios:

About

A highly anticipated follow-up to Rune, the team’s hit action-adventure game, Rune: Ragnarok places players in the middle of an epic battle where gods, beasts, and the last remaining humans struggle to survive.

By pledging allegiance to one of the Norse gods, players gain favor and special abilities to aid them as they raid enemy villages, fight the undead in brutal melee combat, sail to new lands, and craft powerful weapons to complete the goals of their god and conclude Ragnarok.

Development of Rune: Ragnarok is being funded by ESDF Management, a video game production and finance company.

Chris Rhinehart, Project Director

“After seventeen years, we are thrilled to finally announce a new Rune game. In the spirit of the original, Rune: Ragnarok has intense and brutal combat in a world steeped in Norse mythology. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve created.”

Matt Candler, ESDF Managing Partner

Rune: Ragnarok is the first video game we’ve committed to financing. We’re incredibly excited to support the vision that our partners at Human Head Studios have offered for long-time fans and newcomers to Rune alike.”
