RuneScape MMORPG
One of the oldest and most popular MMORPGs still around will finally become available for mobile users, but not as a whole new game, but as a client for Android devices that is expected to go live in early 2018.

Although it has been available for more than 16 years and it continues to have a strong player base, RuneScape is not present on Android or iOS yet. However, its developer, Jagex, has just unveiled that this browser-based MMORPG would get an Android client in early 2018.

RuneScape has no less than 200 million registered accounts and, thanks to its low-intensity graphics, running it on mobile devices should not pose any problems to most of its users. Jagex made it clear that the upcoming RuneScape for mobile would not be another game, but a client that would allow playing both versions available - RuneScape proper and Old School RuneScape.

Those eager to take the mobile clients for a spin should know that Old School RuneScape for mobile is scheduled to enter beta testing in late 2017, while RuneScape's mobile client is set to go live in 2018. We should hear more about this in the coming months since it is not clear at this stage if an iOS client is also in the making or RuneScape would only hit Android next year.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
