New Rune: Ragnarok video gives us a glimpse at its combat mechanics

Human Head Studios has released a new teaser video for Rune: Ragnarok that gives us a glimpse at its combat mechanics. The game will feature decapitations and players will be able to block the enemy attacks. However, this video also looks a bit rough (it was to be expected as the game is still in an early stage).

As the development team noted, this in-game footage features its classic brutal combat and the return of the egg-shaped movement that helped make Rune so tactical. It also demonstrates one of the intense atmospheres that you’ll encounter in your quest to stop Loki.

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.

Enjoy the video and stay tuned for more!
