For the first time since it’s launch, RuneScape will be available on Steam.
This wouldn’t be such a big deal, had the game not come out in 2001!
Of the Steam launch, RuneScape‘s “Mod Warden” posted the following;
“As we look to the future, we are not just committed to improving the world of RuneScape but also to making sure that beating heart of the game – the presence of players – is as prevalent as ever. To do that, we’re setting out on a new mission; bring RuneScape to new places, find new adventurers from new locations, and make RuneScape a more accessible, more cross-platform MMORPG that you can enjoy anywhere.
That journey begins with our arrival on Steam. It brings RuneScape, one of the world’s largest MMORPGs, to one of the world’s ultimate gaming destinations. It connects us to a huge new community of PC gamers that we can appeal to for the very first time. Together, we can welcome them and show them just what RuneScape and its community have to offer.
We won’t stop here either – we will continue to work with our partners to bring RuneScape everywhere we can, and to make it more accessible than ever. You will see us integrate with alternative account services, on new platforms and become available in different stores. This is all about offering new ways to access RuneScape and appeal to new communities of players.”.
Yes, for fans of the MMORPG, it’s a big date. However, it isn’t the first time the game will be available outside of developer Jagex’s website. Both RuneScape and Old School RuneScape are making their way to mobile. It’s currently in Early Access on Android devices, with a Closed Beta running on iOS. Sign up for that here.
For Steam, RuneScape will launch 14th October. Make sure you wishlist it now
