"As a MMO player, you ideally want to play at any time of the day or night no matter where you are".

Jagex aims to recapture one of the key things that made Runescape great, being the ability to easily play the MMORPG without the need of a fancy PC or even a client, Runescape mobile would make the game much more accessible and more akin to how the original titles were like back when Runescape was strictly a web browser experience. Best of all, the mobile iterations of RuneScape will support cross-platform play, so you'll be able to take your battle-worn protagonist from the PC games with you seamlessly on the go. So, you can start playing on your PC, then switch over to a phone or tablet on the go.

Jagex claims that these two games will be the first "mainstream and fully-established" MMORPGs from a Western developer to make the jump to mobile and to feature the interoperable play functions. "We believe in taking our games to wherever our players want them; recent player surveys showed an overwhelming 90 percent of active players and 64 percent of former players telling us of their very high intent-to- play on mobile". If you're interested in signing up for the beta testing phases for both games, be sure to visit Jagex's RuneScape Mobile and Old School RuneScape website pages to register your interest today.
