Relive your childhood! The early 2000’s MMO, RuneScape and RuneScape OldSchool will be making their way to mobile as fully fledged titles.
Both mobile and PC versions of the game will be linked so that players will be able to easily switch between on the go gaming with their mobile phone and PC.
“As an MMO player, you ideally want to play at any time of the day or night no matter where you are,” says Jagex Senior Product Director Neil McClarty. “The fact that they’ll be able to play on their PC, leave the PC, and pick up their mobile and continue playing where you left your character will be a big deal for our players – there really will be no need for any XP waste.”
“This is a real step change for MMORPGs,” adds Jagex COO Phil Mansell. “We believe in taking our games to wherever our players want them.”
For now, there is only a release window as when to expect the RuneScape, Old School RuneScape will arrive to mobile devices later this winter, with RuneScape due to follow sometime afterwards. Those interested in assisting developers or trying out the mobile game before it’s release can sign up for the beta, here.
