Massively multiplayer online title RuneScape will have its old servers running the game's 2007 version brought back online, developer Jagex announced today.
Old School RuneScape, a version of the game running the same as it did in 2007, will be launched due to popular player demand and will run on servers separate from the current 12-year-old version of RuneScape. Since opening its poll on Friday regarding the restoration of the Old School servers, Jagex has received more than 160,000 votes in favor of the launch.
According to a post on the game's website, voters will determine the "ultimate level of investment" for Old School RuneScape and whether or not it will require a membership fee. All players who participate in the poll will receive their first month of Old School RuneScape for free, even if the vote ends in favor of paid subscriptions.
The developers will host a live chat on the RuneScape forums tomorrow, Feb. 20 at 3 p.m. ET to answer questions about the return to Old School. Players who have not yet voted can still do so on Jagex's website.
Jagex notes that it is already at work preparing the servers' relaunch and will notify players when that are up and running.
