'RuneScape' 2024 Development Roadmap Reveals New Game Mode, Events, Quests & More - Trailer

by Rainier on May 15, 2024 @ 1:09 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.

Jagex is thrilled to reveal the roadmap for RuneScape, giving fans a look ahead at the rest of the year, revealing the exciting new game mode, Group Ironman, as well as a preview of the new Story Quests, Skilling updates, boss fights and more heading to Gielinor throughout 2024.

Coming this autumn, prepare for an all-new way to play as Group Ironman comes to RuneScape. Celebrating 10 years since the launch of the original Ironman Mode, the new Group Ironman mode provides an incredible way to re-experience RuneScape with your friends, where success and skills are earned through gathering and crafting, without Grand Exchange, player trading or PvP XP. Put your skills to the test in this punishing new mode, designed for veteran groups seeking a new challenge.

Players will need to prepare themselves for battle with the launch of a new boss dungeon, the Sanctum of Rebirth, this July; a brand-new style of combat encounter for RuneScape. Step into this 1-4 player Boss Dungeon to face multiple bosses back-to-back, with brand new Magic Duel Wield weapons and a new upgrade item available to those who conquer its biggest challenges. 

For those less combat-oriented, there will also be a new Skilling Boss launched later in the year which will tie into the Sanctum of Rebirth and the new Story Quests. Both of these news bosses are being developed in partnership with the community who will be able to give feedback on these pieces of content in the coming weeks.

Then, later in the year, and following on from the events of April’s chilling quest Requiem for a Dragon, players can look forward to the next chapters in RuneScape’s epic storyline with two new Story Quests. Both quests will continue the Bilrach storyline, and the first of these will lead players directly into Sanctum of Rebirth this autumn.

Additional Seasonal Events will also return throughout 2024, with a visit to The Beach coming this summer, a new Halloween event later in the autumn, and finally the return of the Christmas Village update rounding out 2024. Each Seasonal Event will feature a range of activities for players to discover, with a themed Hub, seasonal quest, new characters, and earnable rewards.

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'.
