This upcoming RPG from Void Studios and published by 1C Entertainment is hitting in 2019, bringing a wide variety of western fantasy tropes and Norse mythology with it.

Players lead a pure Elf named Aurehen on her quest to free the final surviving Unicorn. It's targeting a release on PC next year.
