Nearly 285 million people have played RuneScape (also known as RuneScape 3) and Old School RuneScape since the release of the first series in 2001. Although its popularity waned in the late 2000s and early 2000s, RuneScape managed to have the best year of 2019, and Jagex reported record-breaking membership numbers in early 2020. On September 24, Jagex announced that it would move RuneScape to the Steam platform - making the desktop version accessible to the global audience.
“Jagex's mission is to bring the world of RuneScape to more players around the world,” said Phil Mansell, CEO of Jagex. "As our games reach mobile stores, we are now working to expand the availability of desktop versions. Making them accessible to the Steam community is an important step in achieving this goal."
On Steam, RuneScape will feature custom membership packs and achievements, RuneScape Community Hub and Steam directories, advertisements, articles and media. It can be assumed that RuneScape is still free to download, but it does offer a premium subscription. This will soon be followed by Old School RuneScape, a variant of the 2007 version of RuneScape.
The world of RuneScape has been brought to Steam before, but to no avail. In 2016, a spin-off from RuneScape called RuneScape: Idle Adventures was announced as a collaboration between Hyper Hippo and Jagex. Unfortunately, the game never left Alpha and Hyper Hippo announced that the game will be closing on May 17, 2017.
In 2018 Portable RuneScape and Old School RuneScape ports were announced for both Android and iOS. By 2020, the number of old school downloads will increase by 5 million. RuneScape has been rated as one of the best MMORPG games ever and currently has more than 1 million active accounts. In 2020 we saw the first new RuneScape skill in four years, a new chapter of knowledge and new mini-games. In early September, it was rumored that RuneScape might be coming to consoles.
Soon, RuneScape players will be able to interact with the Steam community and enjoy new content with those discovering the classic MMO for the first time. RuneScape will finally be available on Steam on October 14, with Old School RuneScape to follow in early 2021. For now, players can still download RuneScape and Old School RuneScape for free from the RuneScape website.
