Steam FAQ

What happens when I start Runes of Magic for the first time via Steam?

When you start Runes of Magic for the first time via Steam, the client opens. If you have not linked an account for Runes of Magic, a new one will be created automatically. If you have already linked your account to Steam via our website, you can play with it (see below for more information).

In both cases (normal account / Steam Client account) the launcher will start normally (like the standalone client) and you can select region and language.
