If you were a fan of Runescape back in the day — I mean really back in the day — maybe you didn’t like all the changes Jagex made to the game in the intervening years. If so, you had a recourse, via the Old School version of Runescape that Jagex has maintained alongside the “New School” regular game, but only if you were a subscriber to the latter version.
No more! Like its big brother, Old School Runescape is now permanently free-to-play, meaning you don’t need to subscribe to anything to play.
It does have its limits, though… new accounts will be unable to trade away items during their first 24 hours, and a few other interactive options will be limited, to prevent players from creating unlimited accounts and using them to supply other players (or their alts) with loot. These restrictions are removed if you become a member.
Did you used to play Runescape in ye olden days? If so, does Old School Runescape appeal to you, or would you rather play the new and updated version?
