Rune II update preview

Hack-and-slash title Rune II has pivoted to a more tactical combat system, featuring parrying and more thoughtful encounters. Dungeons and quests have also received a fresh coat of paint. Features include a new skill tree and an upgraded multiplayer experience.

In addition to typical fetch quests, there are a variety of new tasks to perform. New quests include building and defending a new village. Rune II features new updates, stat point systems, and implemented a lot of community feedback. The update's build is currently available on Rune II's public test server.

Become a Viking warrior in Rune II. Select a god as you pillage villages for their weapons and armor and please your deity for power and magical might. All you need to do is destroy Loki, the trickster himself. Work with up to three allies to defeat him and prevent Loki from trapping Midgard in a perpetual apocalypse!

The Lazarus update also improves visual indicators and combo abilities. Stamina is also overhauled, and enemies will now drop instant health items. See the full extent of the changes here. A trailer is also below.

With such a dramatic overhaul, of course, be sure to check back often for any Rune II news. Most of the development team behind the Lazarus update is new. We here at TechRaptor will continue to follow the latest Gamescom premieres and updates, since it looks like a lot of good stuff is being announced this week.
