Runescape Is Back, Back! BACK!

By Jim Rossignol on July 24th, 2013.


Jagex send word that their third iteration of the enormously popular fantasy MMO – Runescape 3 – has materialised on this internet, right here. The game is kicking off with a ten-week event, in which the players must battle for “Lumbridge”. That might not sound very glamorous, but it gives players the chance to work together in PvP activities, with the ultimate goal of being champion of the event, and actually changing stuff in the world. Jagex explain: “You’ll be able to join one of the two factions, and to collect divine tears – fragments of condensed, Guthixian energy that can be gathered through combat and skilling, both on the battlefield and off.” Unpronounceable energies are the best kind.

Lovely trailer below.

Runed Awakening: Runescape 3 On 22nd Of July

By Jim Rossignol on July 5th, 2013.


“Runescape, eh?” I say, to the cold silence of the RPS virtual office. No one is listening. And, well, cards on the table: none of us have ever played Runescape. Adam was living in the jungle at the time, Alec was trapped inside a Micro-ATX case in a cupboard at Future Publishing, and I hadn’t yet taken material form out of my constituent angry ghosts from a haunted house in Kent. No, we do not know the ways of Runescape. Which makes writing a pithy intro about the arrival of the third game a little tricky. How am I doing? Ok then. What I do know is that it’s being in delivered in HTML5, meaning it can actually be pretty impressive in a browser, and that it’s happening on the 22nd. These things, and more, are discussed in the dating trailer, which you can see below.

First There Was Runescape, Now There Is Three Of It

By Jim Rossignol on May 17th, 2013.


We’ve not been pointing the lidless burning eye of the internet at Runescape 3 all that much, which is perhaps an oversight on the part of the beleaguered word-hamsters of the RPS blogmill. The game is looking rather spiffing for a browsering thing, and its masters Jagex are going all out to prove that this third Runescape is the scapiest and runiest of them all. Behold! Browser-based play! Characterful characters, monstrous monsters and an uh, well-tuned orchestra! Yes. See it all in a barrage of family-friendly video images, below.

The beta, I believe, is taking sign ups over here, although maybe not since the closing date was supposed to be 10th April. Anyway.

Runescape Still Exists, Is Getting A Threequel

By Nathan Grayson on March 23rd, 2013.

I never actually played much Runescape. Growing up, I was a snobby, Everquest-obsessed so-and-so. “Look at all these graphics,” I’d say. “My Iksar warrior is made up of so many polygons that you practically can’t count them but still kinda can.” I did have a few friends who swore by the lo-fi MMO, though, and it’s not hard to see why. Back then, free, easily runnable portals to lands beyond our wildest imaginations were hard to come by. Runescape, then, holds a very special place in many hearts, and for that reason it will never dieeeee. And so, we arrive at Runescape 3. Yes, there was a Runescape 2.  Find out what warrants the curvy, alluringly sensual new digit after the break.
