RuneScape users more MOBILE now

Launched in 2013, Old School RuneScape is the industry-leading collaboration between players and developers. Embracing its nostalgic heritage, hundreds of thousands of active players control the direction of the game with an in-game polling system. Now though, it brings all of that experience and more of the mobile world. Access to Old School RuneScape Mobile’s new members’ beta is being made available to every single Old School RuneScape or RuneScape subscriber, as part of a staggered rollout.

Following a limited test rollout yesterday, with the cap reached in just two hours, the members’ beta is today being opened up to enable a further 250,000 subscribers to gain access. Over the coming weeks, access will be scaled up to give every subscribed player the opportunity to continue their Old School RuneScape journey on Android devices while sitting at home on the sofa, during the commute, in the canteen, and even in flight, leaving no excuse for XP waste.

Conor Crowley, Director of Game Development, Jagex said, “Since announcing our plans to bring both RuneScape games to mobile, the community has been clamouring to get their hands on the titles. Old School RuneScape Mobile has been running 24/7 in invite-only closed beta for the past couple of months, and, with development progressing really well, we wanted to share this progress with the most important people: our members. That begins now and, soon, every Old School and RuneScape subscriber will have access to Old School mobile – the next stage of bringing two of the world’s most popular online RPGs to the world’s most popular gaming platforms”

 

The developers have issued a list of recommended smartphones that would run the game at optimum performance. All the devices should be running at least android lollipop (5.0 or higher). The list includes:

  • Samsung Galaxy S6
  • Samsung Galaxy S7
  • Samsung Galaxy S8
  • Samsung Galaxy S9
  • Google Pixel
  • Google Pixel XL
  • Google Pixel 2
  • Google Pixel 2XL
  • One Plus 3
  • One Plus 3T
  • One Plus 5
  • One Plus 5T
  • One Plus 6

On launch later this year, Old School RuneScape Mobile will become the first mainstream Western online RPG to deliver the complete MMO experience across both mobile and PC platforms, enabling players to seamlessly jump between devices and continue their adventure on either platform.
