RuneScape would be available for early access on mobile

  • However, I do miss part of RuneScape Gold the constant grind as well as lengthy involvement (and discomfort) that comes with RuneScape. With its current version as 'RuneScape 3' (from 2013) with added content as well as a graphic update, there's a glimmer of hope I'll be able to revisit it to see how it's going, just like I would with an old acquaintance.

    Publisher Jagex revealed earlier in the year that RuneScape would be available for early access on mobile this summer. Today, anyone will be able to take a look at an ongoing MMORPG across iOS and Android.

    RuneScape is completely free to play, but members can enjoy more quests, skills and other benefits. You can test the membership for free by registering for a 7 days of trial. Mobile apps allow crossing-play and cross-progression when connected to PC So you are able to switch between the two platforms and then continue where you started.

    Make note that this isn't Old School RuneScape, a version that's based on a build dating back to 2007. That's been available to download for iOS and Android since the year 2018. This is the fully-fledged RuneScape that Jagex has been continually improving over the last 20 years.

    There's a clear appetite for RuneScape in both iOS in addition to Android. More than 1.8 million players pre-registered for the versions that have the mobile-friendly user interface, which includes new menus, icons, text and textures. Combat mechanics are also improved to work on iOS as well as Android.

    The company has registered two trademarks within the UK one with the title "OSRS Gold" and one to "RS Gold" in the filing noting that it has registered the use of the terms as words. This should stop third-party websites from having the ability to advertise that they sell RS Gold.

    A simple Google search of any of these terms returns hundreds of websites, several of them having one of the words listed in their URLs. They offer currency in RuneScape as a substitute for real money. It was announced on October 13 that Jagex is putting an end in "real-world trade". On its blog "The RuneScape Team" clarified that "gold bought through RWT transactions in the real world is a major issue in any online game with a tradeable currency."

    Jagex promises to have to send "messages to those we've identified that are engaged with"RWT" within "the next few hours". "For RS 2007 Fire Cape anyone involved, we'd like to be clear that this is your single and only warning," it added.
