2018-05-01 Zak Hughes discusses the highs and lows of one of the most popular MMORPGs in his retrospective reminiscent of romantic RuneScape recollections
2018-04-25 Old School Runescape, the proudly antiquated version of Runescape that still looks and plays like the game I sank countless hours into when I really should've been studying, is getting a raid. Its second raid, as it happens: The Theatre of Blood. A good raid needs good rewards, so when the Theatre of Blood was announced late last year, players were anxious to see what clearing the multi-man challenge would earn them. Jagex responded with Justicar armor, a new best-in-slot armor set (above). There was one small problem: players absolutely hated it.
2018-04-23 We covered Runescape Mobile back at GDC and it seems development is on track as Jagex has sent out the first 5,000 beta invites for Old School Runescape. If you’re unfamiliar with the whole confusing structure of Runescape and what’s coming, I’ll explain. Runescape itself is a formerly browser-based MMORPG. It has all the elements you would expect from an MMO but has a heavy focus on skills, from combat skills to crafting, fishing, and even woodcutting. There is also a very intricate economy, puzzle-like quests, PvP, and all of the other elements in a traditional MMORPG.
