RuneScape Embraces Twitch Integration and Spiders

By   /   Jul 29, 2014

It’s taken quite some time to get this done, but RuneScape finally has Twitch integration in its game. As one of the pioneers in huge free-to-play titles, it was about time that they welcomed live streaming with open arms.

Frankly, the Twitch integration doesn’t look half bad either. All your options are available inside the game of the massively multiplayer online (MMO) adventure itself, which doesn’t relegate you to a title screen.

Options are included to change your broadcast’s name, find the appropriate bandwidth and resolution and enable a microphone and webcam. More importantly still, the chat window from Twitch pops up inside your game.

A Twitch representative stated that RuneScape was already one of the most streamed games on their platform. With the seamless integration, this should grow even larger.

Along with the live streaming update, RuneScape also has some new content in the form of a new boss. Araxxor, as the beast is called, is a vicious spider that gets its own lair, which players will need to maneuver as they lure the creature.

Lair setups will periodically change, to keep gameplay content fresh. Moreover, it’s possible to grind Araxxor, which will become increasingly more powerful each time it’s defeated that day.

Twitch is steadily growing out to become a standard in most popular titles. Just recently, the live streaming service was announced for Wargaming’s free-to-play games as well.

RuneScape is one of the greats when it comes to MMO’s by now. Its first version was up and running as far back as 2001. It has since reiterated its game to move away from its extremely low resolution state, though it will always have a place in our hearts with that version.
