RuneScape is one of the oldest MMORPGs still running in the world today. The original release came out in January 2001, and the oldest version of the game that is still commercially available, known as Old School RuneScape dates back to August 2007. As is perhaps to be expected then, the technical level of these games is a little below some of the heavy hitters of 2017. In their latest announcement, however, Jagex has highlighted a potential benefit of this, as we’ll be getting a mobile version of Runescape by the end of the year. This isn’t a world-based spin-off or stripped down version either, but a full mobile client for the existing Runescape games. You’ll log-in with your existing account and character, and interact with desktop players with persistent cross-platform play. With the rise in popularity of high fidelity mobile games like Fire Emblem Heroes and Fate/Grand Order, it’s a sensible move for Jagex to capitalise on this growing market, both to retain its existing userbase and attract some of those new players. Old School Runescape will be ready first, due out this Winter, with the full Runescape to follow at an unspecified point in 2018.
