Tonight, August 27th at 8 PM EST, we go to Valhalla with Rune Classic. And you could too! I’ve got spare copies if anybody would like to join us and I think Furby mentioned he’s got an extra sitting around as well.
What’s a ‘Rune Classic’?
It’s an updated version of an old PC game, Rune: Halls of Valhalla, that supports higher resolutions so it doesn’t look like absolute ass on modern equipment.
The game revolves around Vikings [or something like that] in a massive free-for-all deathmatch (although we can also do arena modes or teams if we get enough).
It’s the best damn multiplayer game you’ll ever play.
Aesthetically, it’s pretty cheese these days (although it’s certainly not the worst), but that means anybody can run it.
Is it difficult?
No, the control scheme is: WASD to move, left click to attack, right click to block, and control to pick things up. That’s it.
Don’t worry if you die a lot— you respawn instantly, and it’s more about the fun.
Where do I get it?
You can get it here on Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/210950/
Or, just let me know and I can see if we can get you a copy to join us.
What do I need to do ahead of time?
Preferably have the game installed and ready to go. I’d load it up at least once.
It’d also be helpful if you created your character beforehand— give them a nice viking name like GROBNAB THE IMPALER. Since there’s literally 3 menu items, it’s pretty hard to miss where you customize your character. I’d also suggest not using any of the “huge” models as they tend to clip weirdly.
Oh, and add either Furby or myself on Steam. That would be good too.
Will there be voice chat?
Surely! I think Furby said we’d be using that Discord app since he’s pushing it so much and it seems to work well. At the very least, please join us in the chat room so we can figure out what server we’ll be playing on.
Here’s the link to the chat: https://discordapp.com/invite/0Qzp1OX…
Any other questions?
Leave them in the comments below! Game is a blast, you won’t be disappointed.
