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.
