Category: Main Games Action Games Rune


This third-person action/adventure game is steeped in Norse mythology. Players assume the role of Ragnar the Viking, mightiest warrior of a bygone age. In an age when might makes right, it is Ragnar who doles out justice on the blade of his massive battle-axe. Players explore beautiful settings both above and below the mountains of the far north as Ragnar fights his way through several stunning and unique kingdoms to an ultimate confrontation with the Sark Amen, the shadowy warrior-masters of the netherworld.
Rune is­ a third-person perspective game of intense action and adventure steeped in a blend of Norse mythology and high fantasy. Players have to use their brains as well as their massive brawn to survive as they explore the fully 3D game world fighting off fantastic creatures from both Norse legend and the fertile minds of the Human Head staff with their array of swords, axes and magical devices.
The game focused on equal parts melee combat and exploration, with levels ranging from a Viking town to the caverns of the Dwarves to a city in the mountains. Players have access to a array of melee weapons based both in fact and fantasy as Ragnar delves deeper into the realms of myth and further from his old reality.
Rune included a full single-player game as well as several specially designed multiplayer levels that allow players to cooperate or compete as Ragnar or another Viking warrior. The multiplayer game also included special handicap and team modes to widen the multiplayer experience.
