Uhh... isn't this an MMO?
Why would you limit your MMO client to one store?
What? No, it's an action/adventure, just like the first one.
You're mistaken, or don't know what an MMO is. Co-op doesn't make a game an MMO:
"Rune II is described as a “true sequel,” and is directly inspired by the original game, which launched in 2000 and spawned two follow-up titles, Halls of Valhalla and Viking Warlord. Building on the Norse setting of those games, Rune II will see players return to Midgard with new abilities granted by the gods, as well as open-world events, and a full story-driven campaign that you can experience either alone or in co-op."
He is not mistaken. It is a MMO and what you quoted is not how the game plays. You start on a server, you can form a party, and there are instances and other players in the "open world" you can play solo and there is story, but it still a MMO.
It is pretty much exactly like Conan Exiles, without the building and the ability to run your own server.
And the part with running your own server is why Conan Exiles isn't called a MMO, but if you play it properly online it absolutely is one.
