Runescape: news and videos

Runescape headed to mobile devices next year

RuneScape's been around forever. Since first releasing in 2001, Jagex's browser-based MMORPG has quietly built a huge player base. To many, months (or years) spent adventuring across RuneScape are a defining experience; an introduction...

Wow, Runescape still exists and just got a graphics overhaul

My brief experience with Runescape must have been more than 10 years ago. A friend played, I guess, and was playing. Maybe he was showing it to me in the hopes that I, too, would play; with him, no less! Instead, what I did was take over t...

The old version of Runescape has a new expansion

Adding new content to Runescape Old School, the server which aims to recreate when the game was in its glory days, seems kind of weird to me. If the whole point of it is that it’s a nostalgia-fueled romp through the game that stole ev...

Vote to restore old school Runescape server

Runescape has come a long way since it was launched way back in 2001. This massively-multiplayer online game has had most of its core mechanics and graphics redone since then, and while the changes make the game better for some players, the...

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 ever...

Nostalgia: Runscape Classic opens for one last time

RuneScape was always a game that I heard loads about, but never actually got into myself. The early 2000s were a time before I truly got to discover the wondrous medium that was PC gaming. Also being poor and not actually being ab...
