Open-World Viking RPG Rune Launches via Steam Early Access in September

Rune Enters Early Access September 2018

Vikings, rejoice.

Rune will enter Steam Early Access this September. For those of you keeping track, that’s next month. In addition to the brutal new trailer below, you can add the game to your wishlist on Steam today. (Odin favors those who wishlist Rune.)

We’re eager to get more players into the game and continue to build Rune with the community during Early Access. Until then, here’s a message from our fearless leader.

“Rune is a brutal and challenging game set during the Norse apocalypse. We designed it to appeal to fans of the original but also modernized the design for new fans. We hope that all the blood, heart, and soul we put in the game shows as you play and dismember your enemies to take their blood, heart, and soul.” – Chris Rhinehart

Don’t forget that Closed Beta continues this Saturday, August 18. Servers will be live from 12:00 pm CDT to 4:00 pm CDT. Space is available on a first come, first served basis. If you haven’t yet won a key, we’re giving away more on Twitter this week. Plus, we’ll do another drawing before the next playtest. Sign up for the newsletter if you haven’t already.

See you in Midheim this weekend, warriors.

I think I still have like 2 signed copies of the first Rune game in my closet!

Not sure if ANY of that video was actual game play footage and not cut scenes. And so the game is still a complete mystery to me so far.

I loved the first one TO death, if this was just a upgraded HD version with modern graphics, I'd buy it.

I have access to the closed BETA, and thus far it's seeming like it's going to be a great one. I'm pretty stoked for it. It's shaping up well.

I won a contest to name an island in the game, and it netted me entry into the closed BETA.

Island name is Gammel Skog, which is Norwegian for "Old Forest".

….And we set sail for Gammel Skog. If given the choice again, I can say we would not have boarded our ship that day. No one travels there any longer. Gammel Skog is an isle of twisted roots, jagged rock, and crashing waves and nothing more. If it doesn’t tear your hull to pieces it will surely tear your feet apart when you make landfall. Roots and rock and waves and nothing more. Except the witch. Yes, the witch is there. The horrors we found amidst the mass of trees of the isle of Gammel Skog that day were straight from Hel herself. We didn’t find what we were looking for and I will not go back.

If Witcher had combat more like Rune it would be the best game ever made. I loved Rune and so badly want this one to turn out well.
