Old School RuneScape celebrates its fourth birthday
One of RuneScape’s better and more popular experiments is celebrating its fourth birthday today. Old School RuneScape, the 2007-era version of the game that started up four years ago to cater to those looking for a more classic experience, has arguably become as popular if not more so than the standard RuneScape client.
To mark this occasion, Jagex is throwing an in-game bash courtesy of Party Pete. Players who participate can snag themselves a Gnome child’s hat, a war ship, and a cow outfit. The studio also opened up a dozen new worlds to accommodate the growing demand for Old School RuneScape.
“This year is a double anniversary for Old School RuneScape; not only does the game celebrate its fourth birthday, but it’s also the 10th anniversary of the ‘snapshot’ server we used to bring Old School to life,” said Producer Mathew Kemp.
