Those who like to play very high fantasy games can’t think without RuneScape. RuneScape is
such a fantasy massively multiplayer online role-playing game. The graphics and game concept
are really good. I just enjoyed the game as much as I was excited to download the game. A
detailed discussion about the game is described below. So go on.
What is RuneScape?
The game RuneScape is one of the most popular games in the world. RuneScape does not
follow a linear storyline. It’s an open-world MMORPG evolving living world where new
challenges, skills, and quests await. It is developed and published by Jags Ltd. Andrew Gower
and Paul Gower are the designers of this game. It’s available for Microsoft Windows, Android,
macOS, Java, ioS, Linux, WEb browser, Macintosh operating systems.
A player has to start the game through a tutorial. At first, the game is organized in a secluded
place but later the player can play in the city of his choice. He can even determine his purpose
according to his choice. Although this game is new to the player, it will not be a problem for the
player to complete the game as tutors and advisors teach all the basic skills of RuneScape.
The game has several phases including player vs player battle, non-player interaction, player
interaction and Quests.
In player vs player battles, players win rewards in two ways. One is through sharing and the
other is to kill the opponent in battle.
Non-player interactions have some monsters, most of which have their own strengths and
weaknesses. Monsters are basically lower-class animals. They tend to be quite aggressive.
In player interaction, one player can communicate with another player. Sometimes they are
allies, sometimes they fight competitively.
Players receive various prizes for completing the quest. Quest is a series of tasks with a
storyline. The more prizes you can win, the more a player’s status will increase. Using points a
player can collect raw materials.
The graphics at each level are so advanced that every moment will feel enjoyable to the
player. Player characters are human. However, players may choose the gender, hairstyle, facial
hair, skin color, and clothing options. RuneScape uses a graphics engine called “RuneTek 5”,
which provides support for multiple graphics platforms such as DirectX, OpenGL, and video
game consoles, as well as graphical effects such as skyboxes, bloom lighting, and Z-buffering.
Another important feature of this game is the music system. I can’t think of any other game that
has this many soundtracks that feel the area they are playing. Here every song is not perfect
for everyone but there are so many great soundtracks. I personally liked 4 songs. RuneScape

The game was first released in January 2001. The game became so popular that it was re-released
as RuneScape 2. Version 3 of this game needs to be released in 2013.
RuneScape has servers in different countries of the world. There are several types of servers,
one for free which can be used by all players, and the other which can only be used by paid
members. These servers are extended as needed. At least 2000 players can log in together on
RuneScape annually generates over £100 million in revenue and over £50 million in profit. The

most original pieces of music in a video game.
