RUNE II: Decapitation Edition Update 2.0.18750 Patch Notes

Thank you for playing RUNE II: Decapitation Edition. We at Studio 369 are committed to supporting RUNE II: Decapitation Edition post-launch. Visit rune2.com/roadmap for a more detailed look into what we’re working on right now and what we’ll be working on next.


  • Updated Garbage Collection settings to remove constant hitching
    • What this means: Unreal Engine 4 makes a bunch of objects while you play. Eventually those objects are destroyed or no longer used, but they are still sitting around taking up memory. Garbage collection cleans them up by deleting them and freeing up the memory they took. 
    • What you’ll notice: Constant hitching in the world is gone. You may experience a small hitch when opening the inventory menu in Single Player, when closing any menus, on player death, and when loading a new chunk of the world.
  • Reduced Odin skills visual effects based on community feedback. 
  • Fixed chat not working in the prologue.
  • Fixed rafts and boats not functioning correctly.
  • Music and ambient audio now plays in menus 
  • Updated startup video.
