RuneScape enters its third age with over 220 million players to date
RuneScape 3 is officially live.
Jagex Games Studios relaunched the popular fantasy massively multiplayer online role-playing game today, which is free to play. The browser-based MMORPG has come a long way since its debut in 2001, gaining over 220 million accounts in those 12 years, with players clocking over 1 million hours of playtime.
This new launch marks the start of the Battle of Lumbridge. Players' actions in the events will sculpt the content and lore in RuneScape 3 as it unfolds.
The title is available in five languages — English, French, German, Spanish, and Brazil-Portuguese — across 190 countries.
RuneScape has undergone a series of developments, including an HD and "old school" version. You can check out an infographic of stats on the game's website.
