Jagex is releasing RuneScape on mobile this summer for iOS and Android, and it’s available right now for pre-registration.
This is the full MMO as it appears on PC, and not to be confused with Old School RuneScape which is already available on mobile. This new version of the game will feature full cross-platform gameplay and progression between mobile and desktop editions, and comes complete with all the content.
RuneScape Mobile will be optimised for your phone, utilising a mobile-friendly user interface that features a redesign of the menus, icons and text to fit the smaller screen. It’s also being given a visual overhaul in the graphics to allow it to run smoothly on phones.
“Today’s invitation to pre-order and pre-register is a massive and exciting moment,” said Ryan Ward from RuneScape. “It has been no small feat to bring one of the world’s largest MMORPGs to the world’s largest and most widespread gaming platform. This Summer, we will be ready to welcome players on mobile to a fantastical, living world and through endless discovery connect them to a RuneScape community of millions.”
“Our community means everything to us, and we have taken the time in Early Access to listen to player feedback and create an experience that was as awesome on mobile as it is on desktop. Given RuneScape’s 20-year heritage, to have the whole of RuneScape running on mobile is a monumental achievement and we couldn’t be more excited for launch.”
You can pre-register RuneScape Mobile now on iOS and Android, and signing up during this period will unlock you a bunch of special in-game rewards such as a new hairstyle, a sword and a pet. If the number of pre-orders grows, then so will the rewards, with the top tier prize being the Crux Eqal armour and a 50% XP boost across a seven-day period.
