Old School Runescape is now available for iOS and Android devices.
Jagex announced the news this morning, following an announcement that over 1 million “pre-orders” have been made for the game. The mobile version features the full Old School Runescape experience, complete with cross-platform gameplay between PC and mobile devices.
Previously, Old School Runescape Mobile was available to those who held a paid “member” status. Now that the game has seen its official release, players all over the world can begin downloading and playing the game, even if they don’t own an active membership.
“Today’s launch of Old School RuneScape on mobile leads the charge as we bring two of the world’s most popular MMORPGs to the world’s most popular gaming devices.” Said Phil Mansell, CEO of Jagex. “We believe in taking our living games to wherever our players want them and, with the mobile editions offering full and seamless cross-platform play with PC, players can now continue their adventures on either platform and on the move. The arrival of Old School RuneScape on mobile, and our ongoing work to also bring RuneScape to mobile, is testament to our investment in the continued growth for both titles and building our vision for living games.”
Old School Runescape was released in 2013, after Jagex received backlash due to Runescape’s many updates, changing the game drastically. The company vowed to deliver a product that would meet the expectations of the nostalgic players.
The mobile version of Old School Runescape is available for iOS devices running iOS 10.0 or above and Android devices running 5.0 or above.
