'Rune: Ragnarok' Now Simply Called 'Rune'

by Rainier on March 1, 2018 @ 9:09 a.m. PST

Rune is a sandbox, open-world RPG set in a dangerous Norse universe during the end of days.

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.

When we announced Rune: Ragnarok in August, we were blown away by the initial response. Since then, the game and community have grown significantly, and because of this, we thought it was time for a change.

We now see Rune as lasting beyond Ragnarok and beyond the Nine Realms, so henceforth and forevermore Rune: Ragnarok will be called Rune. That’s right – just Rune.

Wait! How do we talk about the glory of Rune (circa 2000)? In the spirit of renaming things, feel free to throw around Rune Classic to differentiate the games.

What does this mean? Well, nothing really except the game has gotten bigger. For now, the main storyline is the same – Ragnarok is still ripping apart the Nine Realms and spreading devastation throughout the lands. Meanwhile, Loki revels in the chaos he’s caused and the destruction that’s ensued.

Ragnarok will never end.
