RuneScape's Necromancy Update Gets A New Launch Gameplay Trailer

RuneScape is gearing up for its upcoming major update to the legendary MMORPG, celebrating the impending launch of the Necromancy update on August 7th with a new launch trailer.

The latest trailer touches on the various additions coming to RuneScape with the Necromancy update, including new armor and weapons, new quests to experience, and new bosses to content with. And, of course, the new combat style and abilities with the Necromancy skill line. 

Earlier this week, RuneScape dropped a combat-focused trailer, highlighting the new combat style to get everyone ready for the update. Since Necromancy isn't simply a skill line, but a full combat style in RuneScape, it's a bit more involved to learn how to play. The new style is meant to be accessible to new and aged players alike, with the hope that it'll appeal to all players who jump into the world of Gielinor.

You can check out the new trailer in the embed above. RuneScape's Necromancy update rises from the grave on August 7th, with the new skill free up till level 20 for everyone to give it a shot. In case you missed it, last month Jagex gave a look at the City of Um, a hub city in Gielinor's underworld and central to the new update.
