RuneScape came out way back in 2001; the public beta was made available on 4th January. Runescape is one of the oldest running mmorpgs and it’s still going strong because the developers keep up with the times. And speaking of keeping up with times, to celebrate its 12th anniversary and the new year, Runescape is getting some new content.
2012 was filled to the brim with game updates both large and small, last year saw flurries of graphical reworks of the popular areas of the game, bigger and better boss monsters, an overhaul of the combat system, new starting areas as well as the challenging task of introducing voice acting into the game. For me, the highlight of the year was undoubtedly witnessing the creation of the 200th million RuneScape account, which secured the game’s place as the most played online game of all time. But 2013 is going to be even better.
New features in the works include HTML-5 integration and some new in-game content including two new skills, a grand master level quest, Wilderness Warbands, Construction skill rework, improved grouping system and customizable interface.
