For those who don't know - the original Rune was a very enjoyable 3rd person (with optional 1st person view) action adventure hack n slasher set in the Norse mythology built on the Unreal Engine and made for the PC in 2000 and later ported to the PS2 too. The level design was not that special but the combat system was very enjoyable and brutal - we could chop off our enemies' limbs and beat them to death with them. The story was quite interesting too, dealing with the Norse Giant Loki and his followers causing mischief and we had to traverse thru the various worlds and fight trolls, giants, beasts, enemy vikings, etc. Another aspect of the game was the multi-player which was also very enjoyable and had various modes of play.

With this new game, they're going into a open world RPG direction, which I'm personally not that fond of, but I'm open to seeing how the game will progress and turn out to be. Maybe Skyrim will get some worthy competition.

The platforms are not yet announced but they likely target the modern console systems and PCs.
