2016 will be a big, big year for RuneScape. There will be no overarching theme – instead, our objective is a simple one. We want every update in 2016 to feel essential. We want you to be wowed by everything that we release, and that means a couple of significant changes.
Specifically, in response to player polling, the studio plans to switch to monthly major releases in addition to “smaller, regular” updates (sound familiar?). Those updates will include content voted on by the playerbase itself, beginning with a fresh solo-oriented God Wars Dungeon, a mining and smithing rework, a new storyline, more raids, a new invention skill, and a new game client, among about a zillion other features.
