You have probably heard of RuneScape, but did you know that it attracts two million active users and contains countless thousands of subscribers?First launched by developer Jagex 16 years back in January 2001, RuneScape has since split into two games: Old School -- in which players can enjoy the classic gameplay -- and the new RuneScape, in which users get regular new updates to the name.

In terms of revenues, despite its age, Jagex claims it's RuneScape gold currently making more money from the games than it's ever done in its 16-year history. In reality, RuneScape has been rising for the last 3 years in terms of players and revenues.The game can be set to receive another shot in the arm with the announcement which Jagex is rolling out the longstanding name to mobile platforms.

Old School RuneScape will strike on the app shops this winter, while RuneScape is expected to follow in early 2018. Both games are also cross-platform -- meaning users can play their PC counterparts and load up the specific same characters and continue where they left off.It's uncertain whether the matches will every get a roll out on the App Store and Google Play, though Jagex is in discussions with Apple and Google about the topic.

While the transfer to mobile could open RuneScape to a new generation of players, Jagex is targeting its current user base and those players who have since churned out the game.Speaking into PocketGamer.biz buy OSRS gold, Jagex Senior Product Director Neil McClarty says though its user base is enthusiastic and highly invested in the game, many players are getting old. With that, he explains, comes time stresses on sport time because of other commitments like work and family.

Hence that the studio set about searching for ways to let users play the game on the move, and cellular was the ideal match. "For us it was actually born out of this, and therefore the cross-platform element was crucial," states McClarty. "We did not want this to be a game that is new since it's about looking after our present players, allowing them to have the ability to play the sport that they're playing, with the characters they've spent .

"The secondary element is that we expect that there'll possibly be some ex-players who have left because they have not had time to play on PC, and perhaps today if it's available to play mobile, they will have 10 minutes while they are on the bus to work."

McClarty states Jagex has been laying the bases for RuneScape on cellular for a long time, with work on the tech side over the previous two years also simplifies the brand new mobile versions and making them viable choices.
