Runescape And Old School Runescape Is Coming To Mobile

Jagex today announced that both Runescape and Old School Runescape the iconic massively multiplayer online games are coming to mobile and tablets. Jagex has made sure to make it cross-play so that you can play with your friends on PC as-well as mobile. If you have to go on a long journey somewhere you’ll be able to log out of your PC character and resume the adventure via mobile devices (great for train journeys). Jagex had this to say on the mobile release:

“As a MMO player, you ideally want to play at any time of the day or night no matter where you are. We know that our players’ time is precious, and that’s why want to give all RuneScape players, both present and past, the opportunity to play RuneScape on the go,” said Neil McClarty, Senior Product Director, Jagex. “The fact that they’ll be able to play on their PC, leave the PC, and pick up their mobile and continue playing where you left your character will be a big deal for our players – there really will be no need for any XP waste.”
“This is a real step change for MMORPGs and a signal of Jagex’s intent to continue to push the boundaries of live games,” said Phil Mansell, Chief Operating Officer, Jagex.
“The RuneScape titles will become the first mainstream and established Western MMORPGs on mobile in full and the first to deliver cross-platform play between PC and mobile platforms. We believe in taking our games to wherever our players want them; recent player surveys showed an overwhelming 90% of active players and 64% of former players telling us of their very high intent-to-play on mobile. Our innovative approach to mobile is also evidence of our ambitions in the mobile sector, and a further indication of our investment in extending the RuneScape franchise to additional devices and territories.”
