If you ever thought that RuneScape was a piddly title beneath your notice, then here’s a wake-up call for you today. The game’s upcoming October 3rd convention in London, RuneFest, has completely sold out since ticket sales began in mid-July. “The demand for tickets to RuneFest 2015 has been astounding, and we’ve sold out in record time — bonds and money sales alike,” Jagex posted.
Fortunately, there will be a way to attend digitally, as the convention will be livestreamed on Twitch. RuneFest will feature reveals and panels for the hybrid free-to-play MMO.
Meanwhile, a passionate team of players have been working on the RuneScape History Project to catalogue the entire backstory of the game’s development and events. As a result, the team released a 324-page online book this past week detailing the past decade-and-half of RuneScape’s history. If only all MMOs had such devoted fans.
