RuneScape and Old School RuneScape are adding cross-platform mobile play

Attention, RuneScape and Old School RuneScape players who have hitherto been chained to your desktops or laptops to play: Set yourselves free! Jagex just announced that both titles are moving to mobile. And by move, we mean taking your current game with you, not starting all over. You get your same account, your same characters, everything — you just get it to go.

Play for both games will be cross-platform, allowing folks to swap seamlessly between the PC and mobile on their account, hopping between platforms as you switch from being settled at home or being out and about. Of course, you can also completely ditch the PC if you want to! This opens RuneScape up to the mobile gaming audience, giving those who prefer this platform a chance to join the community and experience the games. Of this move to mobile Senior Product Director Neil McClarty said,

“As a MMO player, you ideally want to play at any time of the day or night no matter where you are. We know that our players’ time is precious, and that’s why want to give all RuneScape players, both present and past, the opportunity to play RuneScape on the go. The fact that they’ll be able to play on their PC, leave the PC, and pick up their mobile and continue playing where you left your character will be a big deal for our players – there really will be no need for any XP waste.”

If you anticipate this development eating away all your time, you still have a chance to get other projects done throughout summer and the fall before it comes to pass. Old School RuneScape will be the first to debut on mobile platforms this winter, and RuneScape will follow afterward.
