Runescape is getting raids.

Let that sink in for a second. A game released in 2001 and was in its prime in 2007 is only getting its first raids fourteen years later. When I saw this news, I thought it had to be horrifically out of date, but nope. Raids are coming to Jagex’s Runescape as part of the game’s July update.

A giant boar called Tuska has crashed onto the planet (Urgh, I hate it when that happens), and now players will be able to enter a portal found on her corpse’s back to enter a new planet called Mazcab. On Mazcab, players will meet the totally-not-just-mini-Krogan race, the Goebie.

Alongside a myriad of other updates and contact that comes with this new planet, there is the smaller matter of the first (!) ten player raids. When the update launches, there will be two bosses available, with more planned to be added in after launch.

A video showing the update can be found up top, and if you want to see the other big changes the July update is bringing, you can do so on the Runescape blog.

Is this going to get you to go back to Runescape? Or are you one of the many people who left once the Grand Exchange fucked everything up for everyone ever, with even the allure of a 2007 server not enough to bring you back?
