The lights are on
The third installment to Jagex’s free-to-play MMORPG series launched globally today. RuneScape 3 features 5 languages and is now available in 190 countries.
As reported earlier this month, Jagex has promised that RuneScape 3 will run with both Java and HTML 5. This shift to HTML 5 should equate to improved graphics and faster run speeds.
Jagex reports that RuneScape now has over 220 million accounts created, averaging out to 39 new accounts per minute.
Check out the launch trailer and some new RuneScape 3 screenshots below.
Yay I really like that Runescape is starting to show on Gameinformer and can't wait to try out this new engine. But first, need to buy my membership. Game isn't fun without membership :D Ooh ooh ahah
Unfortunately the HTML 5 client still has many problems, (including crashes) but luckily the new improvements are available in the java client. I just can't wait until they stabilize the HTML 5 client. I've convinced a few of my friends to make new characters to play some more after years of absence.
Ahem. I think you mean 220 million accounts. There are more than 220 accounts in my ignore list.
Damn this game has come long way, I remember playing it on browsers back in high school in the earlish 2000s.
I played runscape when it first came out for 1 membership length. Never have since.
And my childhood is starting to come back. I am so tempted to start back up with Runescape.
220 accounts doesn't seem like that many.....
This was one of my favorite games
