Executive Producer Mod Keeper at Jagex posted a blog that outlines the earlier announced 2022-23 content roadmap for RuneScape with some fresh updates. Eager fans will be glad to know storyline content, quality-of-life improvements, a new skill, and more are headed to the game with a few secrets still not revealed.
Firstly, the ongoing Legacy of Zamorak storyline will continue over the months ahead with new quests, boss battles, and flash events. There will also be additional smaller content alongside the story and teased to "mark the start of a new adventure." As October approaches, fans can look forward to Wilderness Events, GameJam concepts designers on the team created in June, and new retro overrides chosen to be included in-game. 2022 closes out with new master max capes, a skilling location, more ninja strikes, and an all-new Jagex launcher.
Mod Keeper offers a brief sneak peek of 2023 by starting with the delayed Death Cost and Grand Exchange Tax update. According to their current timeline, it will launch in early 2023 with a new storyline "woven through [their] next phase of content releases." Next year will also debut a new skill for players to learn, which the devs will spill the beans on soon. More is planned for 2023 as Jagex continues listening to player feedback and updating its tools and pipelines.
And speaking of feedback, players can join Jagex's Q&A session on Reddit this Friday to chat with their Community Team. They hope to address concerns about the game and resolve any questions players might have. Lastly, the blog ends with the Fresh Start Worlds four-month event, going live on September 26 as an experiment to start players from scratch. No matter what happens with its progress, the devs are interested in seeing how it teaches them "how best to continually grow the game."
