Jagex has announced that RuneFest will return for a fifth incarnation of the annual community event devoted to RuneScape. It happens at London’s Tobacco Dock on Saturday, October 3, 2015. A Jagex press release says that players will see the dev team’s plans for 2016 as well as take part in themed activities, dev Q&As, and “a host of other distractions and diversions.”
As in previous years, players can purchase tickets with real-world currency or via in-game gold and RuneScape bonds. Last year, 40 percent of RuneFest’s attendees used game gold to pay their way to the con, and a few even used bonds to purchase flights, accomodations, and entry tickets, Jagex says.
