The lights are on
Developer/publisher Jagex has announced RuneScape 3 for this summer, and the company is promising a big leap for the free-to-play title.
RuneScape 3 is due out sometime this summer on PC, and Jagex is making use of a new HTML5 engine for better performance. The title also features updated graphics, audio, and overall design (including a customizable interface); among other improvements.
In this developer diary video, you can hear the team talk about some of the changes in store, including plans to have players' decisions make a big impact on the overall game world.

Honestly, this is the only MMO I have ever played. I am too cheap and time restricted to pay for a subscription and to invest time, so I enjoyed playing this for free. Maybe I should see if I could log into my old account. I could imagine someone hacked into it and stole all my good, lol.
As long as it plays like Runescape I won't be playing it. Not my cup of tea gameplay wise.
Was never a big fan of RuneScape. I had quite a few friends playing it because it was free, so I gave it a shot, and found nearly no enjoyment in it.
I honestly wish that they'd upgrade the already great, quirky universe to something like Unity. Runescape's got a rich and very self-aware fantasy/sci-fi setting, you could make a lot within its universe. I'd love to see them make something to spin-off from the main title.
Anything besides a DOTA/MOBA, at least. They've already got PvP options in the main game. And we don't need more DOTA/MOBA games.
