A huge expansion has been announced for RuneScape - one which will greatly alter combat in the game forever. Jagex is completely redesigning their combat system, hoping to offer players a more immersive and involving experience. The Evolution of Combat will be coming live to a limited access beta on June 26th.
“It’s impossible to downplay the significance of this update,” stated Mark Ogilvie, RuneScape’s lead designer. “A rework of the combat system has been the most requested update from our community, and thousands of man hours have gone into developing a more fluid, interactive and tactical combat system. The Evolution of Combat update will fundamentally change the way people play and view RuneScape forever.”
“We have always valued the views and feedback our community which is why we are so excited to be launching this game-changing update with a members’ beta. By introducing this update with a limited-access beta, we are able to interact with our community in a completely new way and offer our members the chance to try the new features first, helping to shape the future of one of the most important elements of the game. I know players won’t want to miss out on the chance to take part in this exclusive opportunity, so be sure to register your interest when registration opens on 1st June.”
Beta registration will open to all RuneScape members on 1st June in preparation for the beta launch on the 26th. This beta will run until September, allowing testers the exclusive chance to preview the changes before everyone else!
