Rune: Ragnarok will skip Early Access and will be fully released later this year

Human Head Studios has announced that after securing additional funding sources, it will be able to skip the Early Access phase for Rune: Ragnarok, and release it in its full glory. While the team hasn’t specified yet when the game will come out, it has confirmed that it will released in 2019.

Rune: Ragnarok is the sequel to the 17-year old Rune game and is set in a dangerous universe where gods, beasts, and the last remaining humans struggle to survive. The game promises to combine brutal melee combat with rich, Norse-inspired mythology, and will feature vast and dangerous lands, will support co-op, and will allow players to collect powerful equipment and harness rune powers.

Furthermore, Human Head Studios stated that the game will receive post-launch content, though it did not specify whether this new content will be free to everyone or will put behind a paywall in the form of future DLCs.
