About

It was foretold that during Ragnarok, the gods would fall and the nine realms would be consumed by frost and fire… but it is not what happened. The gods did not perish. Instead, for seven terrible years, giants, beasts, and the undead have ravaged the realms while the gods inexplicably withheld their protection. Immersed in darkness and chaos, mankind’s own world of Midgard lies captive in the cruel grasp of maniacal Loki.
As a hardened Viking warrior, Rune players will align with their chosen god as they pillage villages for powerful weapons and armor, complete quests for their deity and receive blessings of strength and magic. Your quest is simple – destroy Loki, but you needn’t do it alone. Team up with your Viking allies to gain the benefits of shared experience and the strength that only comes in numbers.
Time is against you. Loki will reset Ragnarok keeping Midgard in an endless apocalypse. Rise, Warrior! Save yourself and all of mankind from the Norse apocalypse.KEY FEATURES
Explore Vast and Dangerous Lands
Once-beautiful Midgard lies in ruins, disfigured and drowned. Braving destruction and death, stalk your ravaged world in search of Loki’s minions…and the Trickster himself. Where Ragnarok has warped the land most, there you may find the most powerful weapons and resources..
Go Alone or Team Up With Friends
Brave the end of days alone or invite fellow warriors to accompany you through Ragnarok. Together, sail a fleet of longships to overrun enemy fortresses, battle side by side against giants and enormous monsters, and stand as one to face Loki himself. Add to the madness of Ragnarok in brutal PvP battles to see who may be the most feared Viking in Midgard.
Choose Your God
Align with a Norse god to receive unique abilities and skills to aid you on your quests. Do you align with Thor, who grants you strength? Or with Hel, who gives you power over the dead? Or perhaps the Allfather himself, Odin, who will grant you additional protection from the dangerous world? Choose wisely.
The End of Days
Ragnarok has plagued the land of Midgard for far too long. Its end is coming but Loki’s twisted plan is to reset it back to the beginning of the end of days. You and your clan must do whatever it takes to destroy the Trickster god and save Midgard from a perpetual Ragnarok.
Collect Powerful Equipment and Harness Rune Powers
Complete quests for your god through mystical runes and harness their powers to improve your combat abilities. Pillage villages and take down powerful enemies to gain weapons and armor as you transform yourself into a warrior capable of taking down a god.
Prove Yourself
As the legends foretold, your dying realm is being torn further apart by war. Huge monsters, giants, feral beasts, living warriors, and the dishonored dead alike, all tear at one another for dominance over what is left of Midgard. Warrior, can you rise above the fray? Can you prove yourself mightiest of all by slaying Loki?

Rune reviews and comments

The best Viking game to date! A brutal and funny hack’n’slash with great enemies, levels and a soundtrack to remember. Several types of weapons and multiple tiers within those types, also, as the title suggests, there are runes that give certain magical abilities to items. The voice acting is like a cheesy action movie of 90s, but it works. The art and items design are gothic+viking which is pretty awesome.There's also a mod that allows you to play co-op and even download some of custom campaigns for it. A multiplayer mode is also here and works well. Overall this game is great, it is is a hidden gem in the genre, if you are a fan of hack’n’slash, you shouldn’t miss it. Lots of fun and replayability. It's crazy this game is not very popular, especially since the guys behind it also made Heretic/Hexen games.
