    From birth, the children of the North hear tales of the end of the world. A battle so great the gods fall and the Nine Worlds are consumed by frost and fire. But these tales are false. The gods did not perish. For seven years our worlds have been devoured by death and destruction. Now, mankind must rise and do what the gods could not. Ragnarok must end.

    The Gods Shall Fall.

    I'm excited even though they call it a sandbox open-world RPG. But it's gonna suck balls if the gore doesn't make a return.

    My ideal Rune sequel would take a hefty around of inspiration from the Souls series. Basically, more fast-paced, Norse themed Souls game.
    We shall see what thy have in store.

    Sega's "Viking" from the early days of Xbox 360 felt like an attempt at more open Rune sequel, tho it wasn't very good.

    What manner of unwashed pleb would want it to be inspired from the Souls series, when it could benefit from imbibing more of Blade of Darkness and the goddamn original?

    Funny thing is that, if you played Blade of Darkness, you would have knew that its combat is basically less refined Demon's Souls... Yet you phrased that post as if you are speaking of exact opposite to Souls games.

    I don't know about Demon's Souls, but I've played Dark Souls and I prefer Severance over it. Dark Souls has this sense of slowness that Severance doesn't. And how are the Souls games "more-refined" if you can't decapitate a bloke and throw his head at another bloke?

    Holy fucking shit, now this came out of nowhere.

    "sandbox, open-world RPG" sounds like a disaster in the making, though.

    The original Rune wasn't bad. From what I remember it was mostly a somewhat confusing but charming third person hack'n'slash with dungeon crawler elements. Somewhat like Arx Fatalis, except in third person and fewer stats. I still never finished it though, even back then it just seemed like yet another reskin of the popular "key hunt" trope that was prevalent at the time. I remember spending a LOT of time traversing thru the cave system, and then I finally reached some snowy area, but I've already lost interest by then. Head many good things about the game since then tho, maybe I should replay it some day. The early 3D graphics are downright nasty by today's standards tho.

    What's really needed is a Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K.2 sequel.

    Yeah, the very first version of that engine.

    It's like boasting that some game is running on a Quake 1 or 2 engine. Old as my hemorrhoids.
