'RuneScape' Celebrates 12th Anniversary With New Content

by Rainier on Sept. 14, 2020 @ 7:43 a.m. PDT

Set in the medieval fantasy world of Gielinor, RuneScape is a free browser MMO game where millions of players from around the globe become heroes with the freedom to explore and experience a realm full of magic, mystery and adventure.

Unashamedly British in humor, RuneScape embraces an unconventional world where you're free to play and explore the way you want to. An MMO unlike any other - become the hero you were born to be...

RuneScape has today opened a door to the Dimension of the Damned, a brand-new, survive-at-all-cost, PvE competitive gaming experience. Available for 10 days only, Dimension of the Damned sees players thrown into an alternate undead dimension where the dead are rising in droves.

In this parallel RuneScape universe, zombies are spawning everywhere and players must scramble for resources against the bloodthirsty hordes baying for their blood. Players must get their score as high as possible over a one-hour session and can attempt multiple sessions, but only their best will be considered for their entry to the final showdown. Taking place on October 28th, the highest scoring 1,000 players will compete in a last-person-standing, 90-minute endgame to be crowned King or Queen of the Damned.

Runescape developer Jagex introduced a refresh of Distractions and Diversions, marking 12 years of D&D content in the game.

The developers took a closer look at the classic Distraction and Diversion Penguin Hide and Seek and have added new rewards, updated graphics, and an elusive bunch of frosty secret agent penguins. Additionally, a new advanced Distraction and Diversion has been introduced – The Effigy Incubator.

Penguin Hide and Seek

Building on the popular Penguin quest line, Penguin Hide and Seek challenges players to seek out and find members of the KGP (Killer Gentoo Penguins) who have infiltrated Gielinor. The PBJ (Polar Bears for Justice) has noticed an increase in KGP activity thanks to an influx of new Secret Agent penguins. Players who participate in this improved Distraction and Diversion will be able to gain new rewards including the Sheldon the Baby Penguin pet, new titles, and a penguin tracking device.

The Effigy Incubator

Players who have completed the recently released Desperate Measures quest will be able to take part in a new advanced Distraction and Diversion – The Effigy Incubator. A frenzied, time-based D&D that gives windfalls of XP every month, but also pumps out best-in-slot urns. Players can use these urns while they are out in the world to aid their skilling. The powerful effigies have existed and been appreciated in game since June 2010, and successful adventurers will discover Kerapac’s secret lab to make their own, while revealing intriguing new dragonkin lore.

Distractions and Diversions - a popular content type in RuneScape - offer minigames for when players want a break from the game’s everyday cycle of quests, combat and skilling. With over 30 different activities, these minigames renew on a daily, weekly or monthly basis and ensure that there is always extra entertainment to be had outside of the core gameplay.

Dimension of the Damned is open to both RuneScape newcomers and veterans and, so all players experience the mode on a level playing field, brave souls must create new characters. These slayer-to-be characters will be rewarded with maxed-out skills during their valiant effort against the undead.

Set in the free-to-play areas of Gielinor, and with PvP disabled, Dimension of the Damned features a range of rewards for players to claim. Every participant will receive a survivor outfit and the RIP axe; the 1,000 finalists will also win a new 'The Damned' title; those in the final 10 will also have their names engraved on the statue in Falador and a Dimension of the Damned pet; and the final five will have further prizes of an all-expenses paid trip to Jagex and a year's Premier Club membership for free. The winner, in addition to bagging all previous prizes, will secure 200 million GP, lifetime RuneScape membership, a real-world zombie award, and the title 'King/Queen of the Damned'.
