RuneScape mobile is now a go! Years in the making, one of the world’s biggest MMORPGs is now available as a free download on Android and iOS devices. The mobile version of the game offers full cross-platform play and progression with its PC variant, and offers the same full experience, complete with all quests, characters, lore, and locations.
Jagex said that it had over 1.8 million players pre-register for the game, which were enough to unlock all five exclusive cosmetic rewards that were promised if there were enough signups. There was never any public notice of what “enough” was, so we’ll be generous and assume that those goals were hit without any, ahem, “adjustments.”
In a post on the RuneScape site, Mod Warden said that the arrival of RuneScape on mobile meant that there was “no better time to play RuneScape.” He said that the first front of the Elder God Wars Dungeon was coming in July, offering “the most varied and epic dungeon experiences yet.” Also on the docket for the summer are new updates from Ninja Team, a return to The Beach, and “several technical improvements and other surprises.”
If you’re interested, head over to the Google or Android stores on your mobile device to download the game. New accounts on mobile can claim a seven-day membership trial for free.
