Dimension of the Damned

Pit yourself and your friends against the undead in Dimension of the Damned and compete for the unique title of King/Queen of the Damned and a host of prizes - the ultimate PvM challenge.

Start the one-hour timer using your HUD in-game and rack up points while slaying as many zombies as you can to secure your place on the leaderboard. You can restart the clock to improve your score as many times as you’d like. The top 1,000 players after ten days will make it through to the finale on the 28th for the chance to win a selection of sought-after prizes, including (but not limited to) lifetime membership, an all expenses paid trip to Jagex and 200M GP.


Dimension of the Damned is PvM only, even in the Wilderness.
All players start with maxed stats and starter gear.
Catching Zombeism from bites saps your health, but you can stave off the effects by taking antidotes and/or consuming modified shrimps prior to battle.
These (and other useful items) can be obtained from Zkrik’s shop in Falador using bottle corks. You can also get them from supply drops, but you'll only have three minutes to find the crate.
Falador is a safe space where the dead don’t rise. You’ll be escorted back there by white knights if you become inactive, and you’ll respawn there if you die. However, players with Zombeism can’t pass through the gates.
Banks across Gielinor will be open for use. Space is limited though, and you’ll have to pay for it in bottle corks.
You can read about the rules for the finale here.

The chance to compete for a place in the Finale ends in ten days, so don’t delay. You’ll also be able to see how the Jmods fare in Dimension of the Damned during Tuesday’s live stream! Details below.

Tuesday, October 17th – 12:00-17:00 UTC (Game Time) – JMods take on Dimension of the Damned

It’s a case of survival of the fittest (or the least rubbish). Join a team of unsuspecting JMods as they each try to kill as many zombies (and die as little as possible) in an hour. How will you compare to them?

Expect the unexpected. And screaming. And possibly some rage-quitting.

"Fight for what you believe in, and believe in what you're fighting for." Can games be art?

What are line breaks






About the thing though, they should really have more substantial main game rewards for people who participate. Once most people realize they stand no chance at winning why would they waste time on it when they could be gaining exp/gp on their actual RS3 character?


Unless they can somehow genuinely make it fun enough for people to be willing to sacrifice RS3 progress, which I strongly doubt.

DMM works because people genuinely like OSRS PvP. Even though playing it doesn't really benefit your main game account much, people really just want to play for fun.

The same idea doesn't work as well for RS3 where the playerbase doesn't even care about actual minigames in actual RS3.
