In RUNE II, the upcoming Viking-inspired, action-RPG, the trickster god Loki has devised a way to control the flow of time, allowing him the power to continuously reset Ragnarok! This creates a perpetual cycle of chaos and destruction where each time Ragnarok restarts, a new age begins with different obstacles and dangers. From everlasting night, to unending blizzards, to cities filled with fire… as Midgard’s chosen savior will you be able to finish what the gods cannot?

 

For a first look at Loki’s Age of Night, one of the many Ages of Ragnarok you’ll face during your quest in RUNE II, join Human Head at Twitch.tv/HumanHeadStudios this Friday, June 28 at 3PM CST/1PM PST for a livestream, AMA event and Rune Classic giveaway. Have a burning question you want answered? Submit it in the official RUNE II Discord (Discord.gg/PlayRune) in the #may-ama channel.

 

Inspired by the original Rune (2000), RUNE II is set in a dangerous Norse universe during Ragnarok, the end of days, where beasts and the last remaining humans alike struggle to survive. You have been chosen by the gods to be Midgard’s savior - receive their blessings and powerful abilities as you endeavor to end Ragnarok! Race against time to prevent the trickster Loki and his minions from destroying Midgard as he keeps the world in a perpetual state of chaos. Alone or with friends, you will battle legions of Loki’s minions in brutal melee combat, travel the world collecting rare resources, locate precious artifacts to weaken the Realm Gate and craft the mightiest weapons the Nine Realms have ever seen. Are you powerful enough to take down Loki or will a new Age of Darkness begin?

 

RUNE II will launch in Summer 2019 exclusively on the Epic Games store. For keeping up on all things RUNE II, go to www.RUNE2.com, join the epic Viking war cry on Discord, like us on Facebook, Instagram and follow us on Twitter.
