You've likely heard of RuneScape, but did you know it attracts two million monthly active users and has hundreds of thousands of subscribers?First launched by developer Jagex 16 years back in January 2001 buy RuneScape gold , RuneScape has since divided into two matches: Old School -- in which gamers can enjoy the classic gameplay -- as well as the newest RuneScape, in which players get regular new upgrades to the title.
In reality, RuneScape has been rising for the past 3 years in terms of gamers and revenues.The game could be set to obtain another shot in the arm with the statement which Jagex is rolling out the longstanding name to mobile platforms.
Old School RuneScape will strike the program shops first this winter, while RuneScape is expected to follow early 2018. Both games will also be cross-platform -- meaning users can play their PC counterparts and load the specific same figures and continue where they left off.It's uncertain whether the matches will each get a roll out on the App Store and Google Play, though Jagex is in discussions with Apple and Google in regards to the topic.
While the transfer to cellular could open RuneScape into a new generation of gamers, Jagex is targeting its current user base and those gamers that have since churned from the game.Speaking into PocketGamer.biz, Jagex Senior Product Director Neil McClarty says even though its user base is passionate and extremely invested in the sport, many players are getting old. With this, he explains, comes time stresses on game time because of other commitments such as work and family.
So that the studio set about searching for ways to let users play with the game on the move, and mobile was the perfect match. "For us it was actually born from this, and so the cross-platform component was crucial," states McClarty. "We did not need it to be a brand-new game since it's about looking after our existing players, letting them have the ability to play the game they're playing, together with the characters they've spent years on.
"The secondary component is we expect that there will possibly be OSRS gold ex-players who have left because they have not had time to play on PC, and perhaps now if it's available to play on mobile, they will have 10 minutes while they are on the bus to work."
McClarty says Jagex has been laying the bases for RuneScape on cellular game search for quite a while, with work on the technology side throughout the previous two years also underpinning the new mobile versions and making them workable options.
