RuneScape Old School hits 1M users, gets God Wars Dungeon

More than 1 million players have checked out RuneScape Old School, and developer Jagex is marking the milestone by releasing the fan-requested God Wars Dungeon, the studio announced today.

Jagex originally launched RuneScape Old School — a retro version of the browser-based role-playing game that brought back the title as it existed in August 2007 — this past February, after nearly 450,000 players voted for it. Since then, more than 1 million players have played the throwback RuneScape.

The studio is now letting players vote on content updates for RuneScape Old School, and in the latest round of voting, more than 89 percent of the RuneScape community said they wanted Jagex to add the God Wars Dungeon. The dungeon features four new bosses and the chance for players to pick up a legendary Godsword, as well as high-level armor and other special weapons.

"Seeing RuneScape Old School hit the million-player mark so soon after launch is a great milestone for the game and our players have joined the celebration by voting for the game's most epic update to date," said Phil Mansell, RuneScape's executive producer, in a press release today.
