"RuneScape" is set to roll out on iOS and Android. Jagex announced earlier this year that the game would come out of early access on mobile sometime this summer.

Starting June 17, anyone can play the long-running massively multiplayer online role-playing game or MMORG on iOS and Android.

RuneScape Available on iOS and Android

"RuneScape" is a free-to-play game, but subscribers can get access to more skills, quests, and other extras. Players can check out the membership for free with a seven-day trial, according to Engadget.

The mobile versions support cross-play and cross-progression with PC, so players can hop between platforms and continue where players left off.

The version is not the 2007 old school "RuneScape" as that has been available on iOS and Android since 2018. The new update is the "RuneScape" version that Jagex has constantly been updating for the last 20 years.

There is a clear demand for "RuneScape" on iOS and Android, as more than 1.8 million players are pre-registered for those versions.

The versions have a mobile-friendly user interface with revamped menus, text, icons, and textures. The combat mechanics of the game have also been changed for iOS and Android.

Summoning Skills

On June 14, Jagex updated "RuneScape's" summoning skills feature in order to give a better quality of life changes and usability moving forward, according to PC Invasion. Outside of summoning, the update also brings along with it the final stage of the Battle of the Monolith miniquest.

Summoning was first introduced into "RuneScape" in 2008, and it has been around since then. Certain aspects of the combat skills have become dated, and this update has amended some of the skill's shortcomings.

The most notable changes are the two improvements that are made to familiar scrolls. The scrolls activate a familiar's special ability, and moving forward, auto-using the scrolls will be easier.

Players can now set how many auto attacks they want before using familiar scrolls. All scrolls have been renamed in order to include the relevant names, according to Esquire.  

What is RuneScape?

"RuneScape" is a fantasy MMORPG developed and published by Jagex released in 2001. It was a browser game built with the Java programming language but was largely replaced by a standalone C++-coded client in 2016.

The game has had more than 200 million accounts created and is recognized by the Guinness World Records as the world's largest MMORPG.

Players start in a secluded area and are taken through a tutorial, a set path where they can learn the basic skills in "RuneScape."

After the tutorial, players can access tutors and advisors located in the towns that they explore, giving players appropriate information about their respective skills.

Players set their own goals and objectives as they play, and they can even train their in-game skills, engage non-player character monsters and other players in combat, and complete quests at their discretion. The players can interact with each other through trading, chatting, or participating in games.

Players can download "RuneScape" from the Google Play Store or App Store. The app is available in French, English, Brazilian, German, and Portuguese.
