Iconic fantasy MMO Runescape celebrated its 20th anniversary today, January 4, and RS Gold developer Jagex will roll out some nostalgic events during the year as part of"one of the [game's] most content-rich years ever."
The main version of Runescape is getting a brand new event called The Grand Party now, featuring beloved NPCs like the random event Sandwich Lady and the party hat-wearing Wise Old Man. The Grand Party will dish out a package of buffs, in addition to an anniversary cape and outfit. More anniversary content will arrive throughout the year as part of their four-part questline Once Upon a Time, which Jagex explains as"a celebratory romp through Runescape's past, current, and also a glimpse of its potential." This will start on January 25, and will operate together with the Elder Gods arc planned for the year.
Speaking of Runescape's last: Old School Runescape, the alternative and proudly retro version of the sport, is also getting some anniversary material. I choose to believe this is Jagex's plan to officially enshrine one of this game's most recognizable (and memed) personalities, and I am not taking questions at this time.
Outside of the matches , Jagex will even release a few anniversary merch, and for me the headliner is a gold vinyl pressing for 24 hand-picked Runescape songs, including the only Sea Shanty 2. Furthermore, comic book Dark Horse is partnering with the studio to get a history of Cheap RuneScape Gold the match's first two decades.
