RuneScape Gets Dark With PvP/Survival Server
Who says you can't teach an old MMO new tricks? Not Jagex, who's just gone live with DarkScape, which the company describes as
an experimental sandbox MMO where open-world PvP and ruthless trade wars are the name of the day
DarkScape features always-on PvP with full corpse-looting, where the most valuable items are found in the most far-flung parts of the map. The DarkScape world is divided into low, medium, and high-risk areas, each with its own economy, banking, and teleportation rules. Best of all, the "game within a game" is totally free-to-play, with RuneScape members earning 50% more XP, having additional bank space, and keeping one extra item upon death.
It's an interesting twist, and a new way to breathe life into an old MMORPG. And it's a survival-style game that doesn't feature zombies, so that's something. Does DarkScape sound like something you'd be interested in?
