Like in the original Rune, each weapon type has its own attack patterns. Short swords are quick, dealing lots of damage in close range, while great hammers are slow but can knock enemies back, and axes are great at chopping off limbs or even decapitating enemies. New to Rune II are bows and spears, which let players better attack from range rather than always having to rush into a fight. Which god will you choose to champion in Midgard to bring down Loki and end Ragnarok once and for all?
Watch our new trailer below and decide which deity you will select! While players could throw their weapons in Rune, Rhinehart said that tactic was primarily used as a last resort.
The combat will still feel familiar to Rune players, with attacks tied to your movement. Learning those different moves with each different weapon can create very different combos and a very different style of attacking. The end result of that is the combat is very fluid and very fast.
Rather than playing a set character, Rune II players will be able to choose their gender, appearance, and which god they serve: Odin, Thor, or Hel. Each of these gods come with their own sidequests and mechanical benefits such as poison resistance for Hel or improved skill with a hammer for Thor. Currently that power can be used about every two minutes, though Rhinehart said the team is still tweaking and balancing it.
After launch, Human Head plans to continue adding quests and enemies to the game, along with more gods that players can align to. Norse mythology has become much more popular since Rune was published thanks to the Thor films, the show Vikings, and God of War. Gods fighting each other, the looming threat of the apocalypse at all times, the gods knowing that many of them are going to die, the brutality of it.

After a time, wily Loki found a safe place where the water sluiced between two slimy boulders and he nestled there so that the net only scraped his back and did not snare him. When the gods brought up the net, there was nothing in it. They were all sure, though, that they had felt something alive in the water.
They decided to try again, and this time they used stones to weight the bottom of the drag-net so that nothing could swim under it.

Once more Loki swam ahead of them as they dragged the river, but this time there was no safety on the river bed. He had no choice but to hurry on downstream. When Loki saw that the gods meant to drag the tumbling river right down to the shallows where it opened on to the sea, he turned round to face the net. He arched his back, and with all his strength, sprang into the air and right over it. The gods shouted and pointed at the salmon shining in the sunlight.
Each god had his own idea but, in the end, they bowed to Kvasir: he said they should split into two groups — one on either bank — all except Thor who was to wade in midstream just behind the net. Now the gods began to drag the river for a third time. As before, Loki swam downstream some way in front of them. He knew that only two choices were open to him: to squirm and jump across the long stretch of shallows into the sea or to turn and leap over the drag-net again.

He thought the gods might catch him before he reached the safety of deep water and so he turned, arched his back into a rainbow, and sprang into the air. The salmon flashed in the sunlight and jumped clear of the net. Then Thor groped and clutched at it and the salmon slithered through his hands. Thor held on and tightened his grip; he squeezed and stayed the slippery salmon by its tail.
It writhed and it twisted but it could not escape. Loki was caught at last and he knew it. But there was nothing holy about the barren ground of Midgard, and they were all eager to take vengeance on him.

They changed Vali into a wolf and at once he leaped at his brother and sunk his teeth into his throat. The gods took over where Vali had left off. Loki was thrown to the ground. He lay still; he looked at nobody and said nothing. Then the gods took three slabs of rock, stood them on end and bored a hole through each of them. And no sooner was Loki bound than the entrails of his son became as hard as iron. Then Skadi carried a vile snake into the cave. For all his wiles and wit, there was nothing Loki could do. Then the gods left Loki there; no longer flushed but heavy-hearted and sorrowing they left him to his fate, and to faithful Sigyn.
Sigyn and Loki wait in the damp twilit cave, listening to the eerie echoes of each drip, the sound of the silence, the sound of their own breathing. When it is brimming, Sigyn carries the bowl away and empties it into a rock basin — a fermenting pool of poison. Loki is left unguarded; he screws up his eyes.
