RuneScape’s RuneFest 2019 picks dinosaur theme, promises ‘huge game-changing announcements’


We knew when this year’s RuneScape convention is taking place: October 4th to 5th. We knew where, too: the Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre in the UK. But we didn’t entirely know the theme – until now. This week, Jagex announced that RuneFest 2019 will be themed in accordance with its big dinosaur-themed expansion, which dropped earlier this month.

“The two-day event will be bending time on Friday 4th & Saturday 5th October, with its themed expo area taking inspiration from the prehistoric past of Gielinor as seen in RuneScape’s new dinosaur-infested Land Out of Time summer update, as well as the petrified present of Fossil Island as featured in Old School RuneScape. […] RuneFest attracts thousands of attendees and 2019 is set to be the biggest to date. The celebrations begin on the evening of 4th October with The Golden Gnomes Awards Night – a red-carpet evening that recognises the very best of the RuneScape and Old School RuneScape community’s achievements and names its champions.”

As always, Jagex is promising multiple panels and reveals, including “huge game-changing announcements on the main stage” and “hands-on time with new, exclusive RuneScape and OSRS content.”

IMO runescape needs a massive rework/redesign. They have only been adding new endgame content (as well as the occasional NPE update or new skill) for decades now. I don’t think I’ve ever seen them add mid-game content, which resulted in that part of the game, which is by far the biggest one, feeling super outdated and bland.
