Human Head Studios: After 17 years the sequel to Rune

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017 | Gadgets

Probably hardly anyone expected: The Human Head development studio announced a sequel to its Rune action game, released in 2000. The sequel bears the subtitle Ragnarok and is again resident in the far north. The action takes up again Nordic myths and sends the player into an epic battle with gods, monsters and a few desperate people who fight for their survival.

The first Rune was a medium-sized surprise success with stylish graphics, a lot of atmosphere, as well as fast and violent melee. The latter had resulted in the game landing on the index of the German National Testing Center for Youthful Media (BPjM).
Probably the most important innovation in Ragnarok is the open world, in which players are more or less free to move and can also sail from island to island. In addition, in the fight against Undead and other opponents, they should be able to secure the support of a God in order to get special abilities.
Too much more information about the game is not yet available. Neither is clear on which engine Rune Ragnarok is based, nor when it appears. The game is scheduled for Windows-PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4 on the market.
The Human Head Studios had in the past years beside an extension for Rune and a branch for the Playstation 2 among other things worked together with 3D Realms to Prey, the now adjusted Prey 2 produces and on behalf of Warner Bros Entertainment the Wii U version Developed by Batman Arkham Origins. In addition, the team, headquartered in Madison, Wisconsin, has supported several other studios in their projects, including Irrational Games at Bioshock Infinite.
