Runefest 2016 Plans to Set Sail to the New Eastern Isle

Lots of treats to be witnessed at this year's RuneFest convention in London on September 17th

Attendees at this year's RuneFest convention, the official convention for the iconic MMORPG RuneScape, will be treated to new content and information for the all-new in-game destination -- The Eastern Isle. This new content is due to be released in the month following the September convention date, and features new Polynesian-inspired landscapes, creatures, and lore.

To whet fans' appetites, the pre-expansion content has already been released and is titled "The Arc". It includes new areas called Whale's Maw, Waiko, and Aminishi islands. The interesting thing about this new continent is that the inhabitants have never heard of you or your previous escapades, so you have to start from scratch with reputation and wealth.

In addition to the information about The Eastern Isle, those attending the convention will get to hear the latest news regarding RuneScape, Old School RuneScape, and Chronicle: RuneScape Legends -- all while getting to have fun with the usual convention activities such as cosplay, Q & A, meet and greets, and an after-party.

Tickets are still available for the event which takes place on September 17th at Battersea Evolution in London.

Check out the trailer for the new "The Arc" content below and let us know what you think!


It all started with an Atari ST and here I am, all these years later, still loving video games! Indie games are where my heart is and where it'll stay. The world of indie video games is ever evolving and such an interesting arena to be a part of!
