A journey into the past: classic quests revisited
Old School RuneScape is reviving two of its most famous quests: "Defender of Varrock" and "While Guthix Sleeps". These quests are part of the Mahjarrat storyline and are some of the most requested content from the community. "Defender of Varrock" will be released in spring 2024, followed by "While Guthix Sleeps" in summer.
PvP revolution: Chaos Temple
PvP players can look forward to an overhaul of the Chaos Temple, which will serve as an entry point for lower-level players into the PvP world in Spring 2024.
Technological advances: HD mode and plugin API
A major new feature is the HD mode, which offers a graphical upgrade with dynamic lighting and sun effects. In addition, an official plugin API will be introduced, allowing players to use and create their own plugins, both on PC and mobile devices.
More than just updates
In addition to these major announcements, players can also expect numerous quality improvements, seasonal events and the introduction of the Deadman Apocalypse. There will also be an insight into the development of the new "Sailing" ability, which opens up a new dimension of exploration in old school RuneScape.
