RuneScape 3 announced; causes high school flashbacks

The long running, free to play MMO gets it's newest upgrade since 2008.

Think back to the turn of the century. Arguably, if you were steeped in video game culture by then, you’d most likely remember the popular MMO RuneScape. Heck, you might even still be playing it.

Well, developer Jagex Ltd. has announced the next big overhaul to the game since 2008, RuneScape 3. As mainly an engine improvement, current players won’t need a brand new account. The game will utilize HTML5 and webGL for smoother running and enriched graphics. People with older PC setups are still free to use Java if that’s their preference. All fans will be able to play it by Summer 2013.

Jagex has promised to expose more soon, but they’ve made the video above to report the basics.
