RuneScape 3 has now Launched
RuneScape continues to remain relevant as Jagex has just released the third iteration of the popular MMO.
If you haven't heard already, RuneScape 3 marks a significant revitalization of the MMO with a new story arc, interface, overhauled visuals and over 6 hours of new music. RuneScape 3 also marks the MMO's transition away from its staple Java client in favor of a fancy new HTML5 setup. Unfortunately, Jagex is recommending players hold off on using the HTML5 engine as it's still in testing.
To celebrate the launch Jagex is inviting all players to participate in the Battle of Lumbridge, a two month-long event where players can choose sides between two powerful factions. Each week players can collect divine tears which can be gathered through combat and skilling. Collecting tears will generate renown for the player which can be exchanged for XP lamps, hybrid armour, emotes, and more.
Players can expect the event to change week to week depending on their actions and the side with the most tears after ten weeks will emerge victorious. More details regarding these events can be found here.
Returning players looking for a more detailed list of changes should check out RuneScape 3's official FAQ.
