RuneScape was once ranked one of the top three most popular MMORPGs games, along with World of Warcraft and Lineage II. Launched in 2004, RuneScape immediately captivated the players with its high accessibility and just a huge amount of unique in-game content. From a technical point of view, the game already seemed outdated at that time and looked more like a Lego constructor. However, this did not prevent the project from gaining more than 6 million subscribers and opening 120 servers, with about 200 thousand people playing daily there. Even today RuneScape is on the top because it offers its fans not beautiful but senseless gameplay. A unique world where you can get lost for several years is opened up in front of you.
The game takes place in a classic fantasy world with fire-breathing dragons, long-eared elves, and bearded gnomes. The main highlight of the project is the non-linear approach to the gameplay. The RuneScape world is completely open and devoid of any limitations. There are not even ratings as such; there are no levels. The role-playing system of the game is built on skills that are available for study to anyone. What is more, all those who would like to advance their gaming experience can always buy ESO gold and thus get access to special game features and tools that are disabled for ordinary players.
RuneScape’s crafting system is rightfully considered one of the most complex ones. There are a million things in the game that you can grow, grind, cast, weave, build, cut, and cook. The more you do this, the more skillfully you become in this matter.
Over the years, the game has become increasingly difficult, and you will have a lot more to do than in the World of Warcraft. If you donate $5 a month, then you will open more than 30 mini-games, among which there is an analog of capturing the flag with castles and siege weapons or a fun mix of basketball and rugby. Altogether, these make Runescape one of the richest games of our time. Of course, being in this virtual universe requires a certain amount of courage. Harsh interface, excessive slowness of characters, and second-rate graphics — all these can scare away even those who played Dandy games. But can such little things stop a real oldfag?
Jagex representatives shared their joy when claiming that the number of RuneScape adventure subscribers has exceeded 254,000. And the number of active users of the free version of the game is already 2.4 million. An indisputable advantage of the game is its free in-browser availability, although there is an option with a subscription for a symbolic fee of $5 per month. Give it a try and dive deep into the unique universe where you can demonstrate your skills and power.
