“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.”

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 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?

I've been a big supporter of Human Head. They've had a lot of tough breaks including the idiotic bethesda Prey 2 decision. I wish them well but no way I'm, joining this epic farce,
even for them.

Hell, I was a huge supporter of epic for 20+ years but sweeney's blown all that good will. As far as I can tell he is just a coward, to afraid to build a store based on quality and merit.

How do you know the Prey 2 decision was a bad one? We have so little evidence of what Human Head was doing.

And what makes you think Sweeney isn't building a store based on quality and merit? It's just that building that takes time and money - looking at Steam, hundreds of millions over 15 years. Uncertain how you expect Sweeney to get to that out the gate...
Your entitled to your opinion just like everyone else. Most of us find games like Heretic, Hexen, Rune and Prey to be innovative, fun and high quality. Additionally bethesda seemed to be on a power bullying rage back then. Trying to buy developers like Obsidian, Human Head and id. Then blackballing them if they didn't sell. Can you think of a title by Human Head which was bad due to their workmanship?

Because egs is clearly a 'rushed out and fix later' piece of software. I don't need to read any of the links in your last post because I was one of the last people here to join Steam in 2011. I didn't trust them at first, wanting to make sure Steam was bug tested out and safe. Even if I was being a hypocrite (which I'm not) there would still be damn good reason to hold epic in high disregard. They seem to be literally bribing publishers and developers. There's a huge difference between isolating your own software (HL2) and bribing others. Not to mention when Valve did this they were pioneers and visionaries who have guided the industry for nearly two decades. Did they make mistakes...yes. Are they

Uncertain how you expect Sweeney to get to that out the gate...
At least we agree he isn't qualified in anyway for the long term like Valve. Since he is bribing to force his way into a business, he isn't qualified to do, it really makes him unworthy.
The worst criminal in human history, undeniably. There has never been a figure in political history, so dedicated to destroying the prospects of organized human life on the planet, in the near future.
