Starting today, subscribers to RuneScape can download and play the special members-only beta of the mobile edition. As with the mobile version of OSRS, this will feature full cross-platform and cross-account integration with the PC version of the full MMORPG. It’s currently available for Android only, but will release for both Android and iOS devices. Speaking of releases, OSRS Mobile is due to fully launch on October 30th.

As for the games proper, it wouldn’t be much of a RuneScape convention without a round of announcements for those. RuneScape players can now take on the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse in the ‘Til Death Do Us Part event, which starts today and runs all through October. There are also updates due this Winter like a rework of mining and smithing, the new Needle Skips time-looping adventure, and the last part of the Elite Dungeons trilogy.

For Old School RuneScape players, polls will run that offer up the elven city of Priffdinas and the introduction of the continent of Zeah. If these polls are successful, both pieces of content should arrive to the MMO by next year.

Our Thoughts

As ever, RuneFest looked to be pretty jam-packed with new shiny things for all things RuneScape. We’re looking forward to further information for both the content updates and RuneScape Mobile’s progressing development.
