Here’s the good news for Old School RuneScape fans: The 2007-era MMO just unleashed its Darkmeyer update on the world, which “introduces the Sins of the Father quest, the city of Darkmeyer, and the Hallowed Sepulchre.” Lots of vampire fun, in other words.
But here’s the bad news: The patch borked things up so bad that Jagex had to roll back the server to address it. Apparently there was an issue with players’ save games, so the studio elected to bring down the game shortly after the patch came out in order to fix it sooner rather than later.
Fortunately, it looks as though things got sorted out yesterday, so players now can stride confidently into the vampire stronghold and donate their blood for a good cause. “You and your revolutionary friends must take the fight to them, by infiltrating the vampyre city of Darkmeyer and facing Lord Lowernial Drakan on his own turf,” invited Jagex.
Jagex also joined the game studios supporting Black Lives Matter this morning, pledging money to a charity.
