RuneScape now has more than 200 million player accounts
Whoa! I knew people liked RuneScape, but 200 million registered accounts? That's obscene, even for a free-to-play MMO. To celebrate, Jagex has put together an infographic that has such tidbits as "players catch more than 8 billion fish every year." These are the things I like to know about.
"When the game was first released, nobody could ever have expected it would reach such high levels of popularity largely by community word of mouth," said Jagex CEO Mark Gerhard. "It has been an incredible journey to get to where we are today, and by continuing our tradition of constantly innovating, evolving and lovingly crafting RuneScape we are certain to continue to break records by creating an online adventure like no other."
It seems they've also added a demon with 200 million hit points to the game, because sure, why not? Be on the lookout for a unique item that can be used to slay the beast. Looking over the comparison screenshots in the gallery below, it's abundantly clear that it has been many, many years since I've played RuneScape.
