Runescape Mobile

Recommended Posts

Interested to know if anyone's in the beta and your thoughts on whether you'll use it and if you think it'll be a success.

Also, do you think Jagex are prepared for the world of mobile which will be as susceptible to cheating as the regular game? I can only assume they're working to make sure people can't cheat but I can't see all of their preventative measures working.

I'm personally looking forward to playing on the go. I think I could manage the game in that capacity, whereas sitting down and playing it just isn't my thing. Especially when there are so many other games to play.

This probably leads into more discussion about the portability and with the successes of the nintendo switch I can see why mobile would be a good way to get people interested. Although I do think if Jagex start gearing Runescape towards mobile users you will see even more micro-transactions and casual gaming examples.

I agree on the MTX worry. I also think RS would be a vastly different mobile game than most - mechanics-wise and because of the fact it originated online. I'd assume better functionality would exist for people who play online, but maybe my mindset is too narrow. I just can't see myself risking my items going bossing or PVPing. 

There's also the "wait 10 seconds upon logout" thing that to me would feel kind of weird on mobile. Most mobile games you can just exit out of and resume later if you have to go do something real quick. If you're fighting a monster you need to wait until it dies, then get out of the aggro area, then wait 10 seconds to log off. It's a small inconvenience, but it would make all PVM/PVP uses on mobile vastly different than any other mobile game. I don't know how the new players would react to that.

After being available for more than 16 years, it’s kind of amazing that RuneScape hasn’t had a mobile release yet. Just make sure you submit the right one because Jagex has opened up beta registrations for both versions of the game. There are separate forms for Old School RuneScape and regular RuneScape...
