2 versions of RuneScape will be coming to smart devices: Oldschool Mobile, the classic reiteration released in 2013, fan-voted by those who fondly remembered the version of the game that first came out in the early 2000s and RuneScape Mobile, which is the current version of Runescape commonly known as RuneScape 3 by fans due to its massive overhaul that brought many changes to the game.

RuneScape 3 was released on the 22nd of August in 2013 and has since become the de facto version of RuneScape to be played online. While Old School RuneScape was released on in the same year, after developer Jagex opened a poll, letting fans decide on having a separate, older version of RuneScape be available alongside the current iteration. The franchise has since been enjoying a steady stream of content and updates, while the fandom has been properous thus far. Fans of the older, more classic version of RuneScape would be happy to know that Old School Mobile will be made available first later this year in winter. While the modern version, RuneScape Mobile will only be available in 2018. So reconnect with your Clan mates and prepare for the adventure that lies across your smartphones and PCs.
