Human Head Studios reveals Rune's PC system requirements

Rune: Ragnarok it set to enter Steam Early Access next month, a sequel to 2000/2001's Rune that is set in a dangerous land where huge beasts, giants, dragons and even Norse gods roam the landscape.  

Trailers for the game promise brutal melee combat as well as ranged attacks in the form of bows and spears. Players can team up with friends online or choose to journey through Ragnarok alone, PVP battles are also available in Midgard, which means that players should not expect all humans to be friendly. 
The Norse god Loki plans to reset the world to the beginning or Ragnarok, locking the world into a never-ending struggle. Players must improve their combat abilities, take down powerful foes and acquire powerful weapons so that they can take down the trickster god. 

   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 Ragnorak keeping Midgard in an endless apocalypse. Rise, Warrior! Save yourself and all of mankind from the Norse apocalypse.


The early access release of Rune: Ragnarok isn't set to be overly demanding, especially on the CPU side, which the game recommending an AMD A-10 processor, which is at best offers four Bulldozer-series processing cores. This CPU is very weak by today's standards, with AMD's older 6-core FX 6300 minimum spec is, theoretically, more powerful than an A-10 APU. 

On the GPU side, the game recommends that players use a GTX 970 or a Radeon RX 470 graphics card and have a system with at least 8GB of system memory. The game is set to take up around 25GB of storage space on HDDs/SSDs.

Completely forgot about the new Rune game coming out. Never played or even heard of the first one but anything Norse related and I'm hooked. I'll probably end up getting it after early access.

With that said. I don't see why a singleplayer game needs to be early access....Quote
