Be Teased By A Runemaster
This is the first teaser for the upcoming Runemaster from Paradox, the creators of Europa Universalis, Crusader Kings and the Mount and Blade games. The teaser doesn't give much away, but you're guaranteed some Viking hack, slash and stomp, at least. Graphically it looks great, and the music is awesome. From the little clip of the blonde guy running toward what looks like a troll at around 0:52, I'm hoping it's gonna be another great ARPG.
Paradox are promising,
Vast vistas to explore: Wander the six worlds of Norse myth, from the lofty forests of Midgard to the fires of Muspelheim. Each time you start a new campaign, the world is procedurally generated to ensure each adventure is a venture into the exciting and unknown.
Rich tactical combat: Recruit and command an expansive range of units with unique abilities. Learn to use your troops – and the terrain of the battlefield – to crush your enemies.
Emergent storytelling: Who you are and the choices you make have a direct impact on the journeys you embark on. The game's procedural quest system will take note of your deeds and challenge you accordingly. No two playthroughs will ever be the same.
The Paradox website has Runemaster slated for winter this year so try not to get too excited. That's definitely long enough to give yourself several ulcers.
