After almost two decades, Human Head Studios has bought out the Rune 2 for PC on the Epic Games Store. The first installment of the game had come out in 2000. The game revolves around the world where the Norse Gods have no control over the world as some creatures are infesting the planet.
Rune 2 is an action-adventure RPG game where players can take up various challenges and win them to progress in the game.
Human Head Studios co-founder and Rune 2 project lead Chris Rhinehart said that the dedication of the fans on this franchise enabled them to develop Rune 2.
You can play Rune 2 in either solo mode or team up with other players or your friends (Multiplayer mode), travel around, build weapons and other items and battle against your enemies. You can even build Viking Longboats in which you can travel.
The game description reads, “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.”
