Ever since that time it had been transferred to a C++ client and has seen a few relaunches and fresh iterations buy RuneScape gold. Originally released in 2001, the present version, dubbed only RuneScape, is really the third iteration. The original is known as RuneScape Classic, but the model I knew the most vividly was previously known as RuneScape 2. Now, that version has its own separate client named Old School RuneScape. More than 200 million people have played RuneScape through the years.

Before this month RuneScape eventually released on Steam formally and is seeing a strong debut. More than 11,000 people tend to play at any given time with its all-time peak nearing 12,000. To put that into perspective, at the time of this writing midday, it is only 5,000 players supporting Final Fantasy XIV, one of the most important and most common pay-to-play MMOs on the market, according to SteamCharts. To reference the following metric, RuneScape has a"Very Favorable' user review synopsis on Steam with over 3,800 submitted testimonials up to now in just six days.

"As launch hour came, you stuffed the Steam Launch Welcome to the brim with parties, positivity and a great deal of fun," writes Mod Warden in a letter to players on the official website. "Imagine seeing this as your very first adventure in RuneScape! When the official party finished, you kept it going by flocking to free-to-play worlds to assist new players, showing them the ropes, gifting out equipment or even simply cheering them on. Seeing your stories and adventures has been a complete joy...This week, the star of the show was not our launch, but all you. On behalf of all us on the RuneScape Team, if you have directly involved or just cheered from the sidelines, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts."

The bottom customer itself is free to download and play, however you can buy various digital content packs, like the Starter Pack, Standard Bundle, and Max Pack for $15, $40, and $130 respectively. RuneScape has witnessed a ton of OSRS Money updates through the last few years and the current iteration is quite impressive visually, even considering its humble beginnings. Early next year Old School RuneScape is slated to hit Steam too, but it is already out through the official site with over 100,000 people playing at any given time most days. You should expect to see yet another influx in RuneScape popularity when that happens too.
