Open-World Viking RPG Rune Launches via Steam Early Access in September

Rune Enters Early Access September 2018

Vikings, rejoice.

Rune will enter Steam Early Access this September. For those of you keeping track, that’s next month. In addition to the brutal new trailer below, you can add the game to your wishlist on Steam today. (Odin favors those who wishlist Rune.)

We’re eager to get more players into the game and continue to build Rune with the community during Early Access. Until then, here’s a message from our fearless leader.

“Rune is a brutal and challenging game set during the Norse apocalypse. We designed it to appeal to fans of the original but also modernized the design for new fans. We hope that all the blood, heart, and soul we put in the game shows as you play and dismember your enemies to take their blood, heart, and soul.” – Chris Rhinehart

Don’t forget that Closed Beta continues this Saturday, August 18. Servers will be live from 12:00 pm CDT to 4:00 pm CDT. Space is available on a first come, first served basis. If you haven’t yet won a key, we’re giving away more on Twitter this week. Plus, we’ll do another drawing before the next playtest. Sign up for the newsletter if you haven’t already.

See you in Midheim this weekend, warriors.
