We've finally got a date for Old School RuneScape's arrival on Steam: It's February 24, and you can check out its page and wishlist it now. When it launches, it will "deliver a custom-built Steam experience with a dedicated Old School Steam Community Hub" so you can stay up-to-date on all the latest news and other promotions for the game.

When the game launches, you'll be able to log in with your Steam account or link your existing OSRS account to Steam. The Steam implementation will include all the usual bells and whistles you'd expect, like achievements, badges, and emoticons, with trading cards coming a short time after launch.

In the announcement for its arrival on the new platform, Jagex said that OSRS hit a new peak of 157,000 concurrent players for its Leagues II: Trailblazer event. It also claimed over eight million installs on mobile devices and called the game "a regular contender for the top 10 most viewed titles on Twitch." That's an unusual boast, both because "contender for top 10" sounds like you're #12 or so -- and therefore not in the top 10 -- and because, at least at this moment, the game has about 11,000 viewers on Twitch, which would place it around the #50 mark. (This site lists it as #46 over the past seven days.)
