Runemaster is Paradox Interactive's new Norse mythology-based RPG
Paradox Interactive, during the "Paradox Interactive Convention" in Miami today, announced the release of a brand new role-playing game set in a fantasy realm based on Norse mythology. Runemaster, as the game is called, is "based in the rich, majestic traditions of Norse mythology, casting each player in the role of a unique champion in a time of chaotic upheaval," the company briefly detailed.
Throughout your journey, you'll explore six worlds of Norse myth, each with procedurally generated maps and quests to ensure no two playthroughs are alike in experience. In terms of gameplay, players can expect traditional turn-based combat with your choices ultimately defining your champion.
“Creating an RPG is something new for Paradox Development Studio, and it’s been a dream project we’ve wanted to undertake for a long time now,” said Johan Andersson, Studio Manager at Paradox Development Studio. “We’re always playing RPGs in our spare time and discovering new things we love about them as a game genre; it was only natural that sooner or later we’d have to design our own. Runemaster is the result, and we know our fans will love it.”
Not much else is known about the game, but with a few GameZone staffers headed to the convention today, I'm sure we'll learn more.
