2017 Will Mark the Year of the Expansion | Runescape | MMORPG.com

During this past weekend's Runefest, Jagex made several big announcements, most notably that the company is bringing the expansion mentality into RuneScape. Starting in 2017, every three months, RuneScape will have a new area or region added to the game, something developers are calling a "new substantial part of the world map" and each will place an emphasis on exploration and discovery.

In addition to the expansion announcement, Jagex also revealed:

  • dynamic game-play affecting weather will be added
  • raids will be coming to Old School Runescape
  • in thanks for raising £200,000, Jagex is awarding community members with a Golden Gnome
  • 250,000,000 players have registered accounts for RuneScape over its lifetime

You can read more about RuneFest in Rob Lashley's article before heading to the RuneScape site.
