Following the recent launch of fresh start servers in RuneScape, Old School RuneScape will release its own on October 19th.

With the promise of a fresh world and completely clean slate economy, the option to bring Fresh Start to Old School RuneScape makes sense. 

Starting fresh is an opportunity to play in the game you know, but with the opportunity have a fresh economy and high scores. Fresh Start will have some significant differences here than on RuneScape. First of all, these Fresh Start servers will not have any accelerated progression bonuses. No XP increases or drop rate boosts, and there will no be no Ironman mode. Since the team is targeting this at new players, they wanted to make it simple but fresh. Fresh Start worlds will also be free to play.

The Fresh Start worlds will get the same updates as the main game, so this will just be with a fresh economy and high scores for players to feel like they're not years behind everyone else. And it could also give you an opportunity to introduce your friends to the game without overwhelming them.The team is also preparing a set of Fresh Start exclusive achievements as a guide system for those new players trying things out.

After six months, these worlds will close and all your progress will transfer over to the main game automatically. All of your items will go with you, quest points, skill levels, and hi scores you may have gotten. You’ll also have the chance to try to get any world firsts before your transfer. 

This option will be available beginning on the 19th on an opt-in basis.
