It is here.

We are no more playing 'Runescape', as in the version it has been for the last 9 years. Runescape has taken the next big step. We're now enjoying Runescape 3 when we play the main game version. Updated audio, new lore, a new world-changing event and a highly customization-able interface system are some of the new features.
Amazing according to me.

RuneScape 3 Now Live

RuneScape 3 is here! A new age dawns today, kicking off with the Battle of Lumbridge. Along with the hugely customisable New Interface System, the chance for fame in Seasonal Hiscores, over 6 hours of new live performed music and a range of technical improvements, it's time to play RuneScape your way.

Please note: We strongly recommend that - regardless of your computer spec - you access the Battle of Lumbridge in the Java Client for your first log-in, rather than the HTML5 Beta.

The Battle of Lumbridge (free players and members)

Unless you're currently in tutorial mode, you'll be teleported straight to Lumbridge upon log-in. Once you're there, you'll see - in no uncertain terms - that the 6th Age has started with a bang.

You'll meet Kara-Meir upon arrival. She'll explain what has happened to the landscape surrounding Lumbridge; why all-out war has broken out between two powerful factions; and what you can do to help.

Kara-Meir
You'll be able to join one of the two factions, and to collect divine tears - fragments of condensed, Guthixian energy that can be gathered through combat and skilling, both on the battlefield and off.

Each day you can collect a set amount of divine tears for your faction - more if you're a member - and the side which has collected the most after ten weeks will emerge victorious.

Please note: the Battle of Lumbridge is a huge event spanning more than two months, which will change week to week depending on your actions. For full details of what you can do, speak to the NPCs in your faction's camp and in Lumbridge, and look out for notifications in-game.

Battle of Lumbridge
Along with the opportunity to take part in this world-shaking battle and to take a hand in shaping the new age, there are some fantastic rewards on offer too. As you contribute divine tears to your cause, you'll earn renown, which can be exchanged by your faction's quartermaster for XP lamps, hybrid armour that scales with your Defence level up to 75, emotes, titles and much more. The selection of rewards will expand as the weeks go on, so be sure to take part for as long as the battle rages.

History is written by the victorious, and new worlds forged with courage and steel. Take part in the Battle of Lumbridge and leave your mark on RuneScape's 6th Age!

Seasonal Hiscores (members only)

Enjoy some time in the spotlight with Seasonal Hiscores. These hiscore tables are run over set periods of time and involve varied areas of RuneScape content, giving everyone - veteran or new player alike - the chance for their shot at glory. Compete for the chance to wear the Crown of Supremacy (and, once your reign's over, the Crown of Legends), and to earn emotes and titles worthy of your victory. You can view the seasonal hiscores in-game - via the Social tab.

The hiscores section of the website has been revamped too, along with the rest of the website. As well as the top player, clan and seasonal hiscores, you can also track the progress of the Battle of Lumbridge. Take a look at the hiscores page now!

New Interface System (free players and members)

Chances are you've already spent some time with the NIS in the beta, but our awesomely customisable interface system is now live! Whether you're a die-hard fighter, a super-efficient skiller or a wide-eyed explorer of RuneScape's vistas, every element of the interface is now yours to snap-to, resize and rearrange as you please.

If you aren't sure where to start, press 'Escape' and choose from a range of presets, geared towards combat players, skillers, and those who simply prefer the look of an old-school interface.

Get started now!

Technical Improvements (free players and members)

New audio technology means spectacular orchestral music in the game, composed by BAFTA winner James Hannigan and played by the Slovak Symphony Orchestra. Turn up your speakers or stick on your headphones!

You can also view your character in his or her full glory and experience RuneScape from a whole new viewpoint with our newly flexible camera. Zoom in and see what you think!

RuneScape 3 is just the beginning, and you are the driving force of its new age. While you're getting to grips with the new features, please keep sending us your feedback - we'll keep listening, and making the game that you want to see.

Please note: the HTML5 Client is still at beta stage. For those of you who want to try out the cutting-edge new client, we encourage you to continue testing it out, but please be aware that optimisation is still underway and performance may be affected.

Visit our RuneScape 3 Beta wiki page for information on the HTML5 Beta.

Any general RS3 questions? Take a look at our RS3 FAQ.

Enjoy!

Jagex have said they are working on it, but I would say that for the start you will have to stick with Chrome. Sorry :/

Haven't been able to access the HTML5 Beta yet. Hopefully it will work with my Chrome once it's released.

A client is in the works, I believe, but I don't think it will be ready for the launch. Same situation with Firefox, which I believe has a single issue which can only be fixed by Mozilla. A lot of this is to do with HTML5 standards which Jagex can't do much about. Internet Explorer is almost certainly off the cards for the medium term, and if you use that I would suggest migrating anyway.

Anyway, woop! I knew it was right to hold off judgement about the BTS. Turns out this is a jam-packed month after all!

HTML5 client will still be stuck with the shitty FXAA instead of real AA. So everything is still going to have that too soft slightly blurred look with no clearly defined edges. Right now I'd pick the Java client over the HTML5 one. Really hope they get some proper anti aliasing in.

Is it time for the real quality testing to begin?
Just think by 2014 it might actually work.
I hope they don't break the Java version in the mean time...

I actually have had good results on my desktop with HTML5, but yea it really needs true AA support, and the NIS interface is great but has a few issues still.

They still have changes for EoC in mind, and look how much time has passed since the release of the 'final, release-ready EoC version which might only need very minor alterations in the future'. We had to relearn combat several times since then.

So, seeing as people will be forced beta testers since 2013-07-22, you have a good point. By 2014 it might be release-ready.

I hope they don't break the Java version in the mean time...


If people will not be big on being beta testers, they will be forced to remove the java client support to get RS3 release ready by 2014...

I've said before to friends that Jagex are screwed either way they play this:

A. They release it now they make the same mistake they did with EoC and launch a thing that is still in beta and is being forced out because no one plays the beta anymore (or at least only those who can handle RS3 play the beta).

B. They don't release it this month, then they shoot themselves royally in the foot and lose out on the biggest and best point in the gaming year in order to release RS3.

Hopefully the Battle of Lumbridge will be workable on Java client etc. Also I'm one of those people that want to sit and wait with this content to find out the best possible outcomes.

I think the world event actually is a global thing, meaning that all players get the same outcome, vs quests which will possibly have unique endings for each player? Not sure...

Will be interesting..

I *really* hope we get some solid time to run NIS + HTML5 together before launch...

I agree with this interpretation.

Egads, when I first read this, I thought you said you'd "want to sit with your content hanging out ..." :blink:

In any event, you're absolutely right. They're damned if they do and damned if they don't get RS3 out in July. :unsure:

Looks good and however much I would like to complain about it just because I don't play the main game anymore, Jagex is actually starting to look like they might be able to pull out a competitive current age game, albeit a pretty different one, calling it Runescape 3 seems fitting.
Check it out, huge amount of effort has gone into this massive mod!

I can tell you that if the beta had been available for F2P, they would have had at least one more beta tester ;).

I'm excited to see how the release of RuneScape 3 will impact the views of the players; I personally believe after the bugs are worked out it will be pretty damn awesome. As of right now we only know the release of one skill which is Divination, but it's very possible that there's another skill planned for the future of the 6th age. My computer has responded quite well with the beta tests of the HTML5 client, and I really like the idea of the NIS Interface which of course still has a few bugs that will be worked out soon enough.
