RUNE II is a brand-new game from Human Head Studios where you and your fellow Vikings try to fight against the evil forces of Loki in intense action combat. It seems like a pretty sweet game going by the trailers, and you won’t have to wait too long to get it, either — the Rune II release date will see this game launching on the Epic Games Store on November 12, 2020. The game’s Epic exclusivity was announced earlier this year.

All About RUNE II

RUNE II is not a bog-standard medieval game with burly battlers and sharp swords. The world is literally ending, and it is only through the divine graces of the Gods that you’ll be able to survive the upcoming battle.

Odin, Hel, and of course Thor will be available to help the player out in their battle against Loki. Judging by the trailer (which you can watch below), serving as the champion for each of these gods will grand you unique powers that you can use in battle. And worry not — pledging yourself to Thor will definitely let you bring the hammer down.

Multiple Versions Available on the RUNE II Release Date

I've had a controller in my hand since I was 4 and I haven't stopped gaming since. CCGs, Tabletop Games, Pen & Paper RPGs - I've tried a whole bunch of stuff over the years and I'm always looking to try more!
