Old School Version Popping Champagne Corks for Its 5th Anniversary

Old School Version Popping Champagne Corks for Its 5th Anniversary - MMORPG.com

Jagex is ready to throw a party in celebration of Old School Runescape and its fifth anniversary. Players will find a brand new adventure that will see players assisting Da Vinci as he works on a new painting. Successful completion of the event will see players score "the iconic sword emblazoned in the game's logo".

Launched in February 2013, what began as a nostalgic vanilla RuneScape server for players eager to experience the MMORPG as it was in 2007, has today become an online success story in its own right. Over the past five years Old School has received dozens of exclusive updates not seen in RuneScape, including new quests and landmasses, and attracted millions of monthly players. Its competitive nature has brought to life the seasonal Deadman tournaments that have propelled it to be the #1 competitive MMORPG, as well as a most-watched game on Twitch.

Jagex also revealed that OSR players have streamed over 16 million minutes of PvP action. As part of the anniversary fete, a dedicated Old School Twitch channel has been launched to showcase the action. To kick things off, Jagex will be hosting a $20,000 tournament called the Deadman 2018 Spring Final on Saturday, March 17th.

You can learn more on the Old School Runescape site.
