Rune: Ragnarok Becomes Epic Game Store Exclusive RUNE II

Human Head Studios announces RUNE II is the new title of the project formerly known as Rune: Ragnarok, also revealing the Viking-themed action/RPG sequel is now going to be an Epic Games Store exclusive when it launches this summer. If this raises questions or concerns, the chance to voice them will come on Friday afternoon, when they plan an AMA session on Twitch. They illustrate the announcement with a new Ages of Darkness trailer. Here's word:
RUNE II is finalizing development and will launch worldwide on Windows PC on the Epic Games store in Summer 2019.


For more details on the story, bad guys, quests, and other items players will discover in RUNE II, join Human Head at Twitch.tv/HumanHeadStudios on May 24 at 3PM CST/1PM PST for a livestream and Ask Us Anything event to see further reveals and chat with the developers. Have a burning question you want answered? Submit it in the official RUNE II Discord (Discord.gg/PlayRune) in the #may-ama channel.

“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?

Here's the first Steam thread Blue posted Sadly, replace "steam" with "EGS" and that could be a somewhat modern thread here.

Here's the second or so. Lots of Steam hatred, lots of people angry at Valve, and a few people baffled as to why anyone would ever want to watch anyone play games (I agree, but man, the future sure disagreed.)

i dont agree with steam being the only option for dload...its not fair to the users.

Here's when Valve announced HL2 would require Steam going forward. Unsurprisingly, a few people claimed they'd boycott HL2.

Another thread with people claiming they'll boycott HL2 over Steam

People canceling B&M HL2 preorders over Steam

It's all just history repeating itself, and we've been through all of this before. Here, on this very site.
Thank you for taking the time and posting this. Yes, we have been here before.

Remember when we were all pissed off about having to install some third party shit just to play HL2? Pepperidge Farms remembers.
