Along with OSRS, RuneScape Arrives in Android & iOS Devices
RuneScape is officially heading to Android and iOS which is expected to garner even more players on the game’s servers.
When Old School RuneScape first arrived on mobile, it was instantly a hit. Imagine no longer having to be stuck in front of a computer just to farm OSRS gold. Players can now play their favorite MMORPG on the go and not have to worry about their OSRS GP too much. This led to many gamers no longer seeing any reason to buy OSRS gold or get OSRS gold for sale simply because they can farm the currency while being out and about. Now that OSRS has had its fun, it’s time that its younger sibling also makes their way to Android and iOS devices. That’s right, RuneScape is officially heading into mobile as well! Granted this was announced ages ago, specifically the same time when OSRS will be coming to mobile, Jagex took their sweet time in getting their more optimized and polished MMORPG to mobile devices. So, what can players expect when playing RuneScape on mobile for the first time? Will it be just the same old, same old? Or are there any new things that they should take note of?
It Will Be Complete
Many are probably thinking that RuneScape will be coming as an incomplete version of its PC counterpart simply because the game is too vast. Well, that’s where the people are wrong. RuneScape will in fact be a complete game for iOS and Android. If OSRS and other much bigger games such as Black Desert Online, for example, could do it, then the same can be done for RuneScape as well. RuneScape is arguably Jagex’s most popular MMORPG right now compared to OSRS. This free yet conventional game lets players create their own character and immerse themselves in a sandbox-like gameplay experience that’s filled with quests, adventures, and all sorts of fantasy locations that can take any player’s breath away. This might be the chance for OSRS-only players to stop their farming of OSRS gold or OSRS GP for once and try Jagex’s other game out.
Just like Old School RuneScape, the more fleshed-out MMORPG will be free and fully cross-platform available. This is great for players that don’t want to commit to playing the game fully on PC but want to play with their friends that don’t necessarily like playing on their mobile phones. This also means that players who are originally playing on their PC can transfer their saved data to their mobile as long as they log in with the same RuneScape account that they’ve been using previously. According to Jagex, the RuneScape that will be released on mobile will be completely the same as the PC version, for mobile-only RuneScape doesn’t have to worry about getting the short end of the stick.
Jagex Shows No Signs of Slowing Down
With Old School RuneScape being such a massive hit when it was released on Android, it’s no surprise that RuneScape ought to have that slice of success. Averaging a 4.5 review score on the Google App store and over 8 million downloads, the membership for Old School RuneScape skyrocketed across all of the platforms, not just for mobile. With RuneScape now being more accessible thanks to being also available on Steam which is the biggest platform for games, Jagex is looking for the perfect chance for history to repeat itself the same way with what happened in the case of OSRS.
Pre-Registering for Goodies
For those who are even at the very least interested in playing RuneScape for the very first time, this might be their chance to pre-register. Players who will sign up for the game will have the chance to unlock a bunch of exclusive rewards in the game. Some of these rewards include experience boosts to help them level up quicker, cosmetic OSRS items that can’t be found or bought from the NPCs such as the Crux Equal armor set. The best part is that the more players that will be signing up, the better the rewards the players will get!
In A Nutshell
RuneScape might just be Jagex’s next successful release alongside Old School RuneScape. Despite already having a ton of MMORPGs on the mobile gaming market, there are only so few that are actually good. This might be a great time for OSRS players to put down the game for a while and stop farming OSRS gold or OSRS GP for once and enjoy another one of Jagex’s games instead.
