RuneScape players who were not selected to participate in last week's Combat Beta will want to check into the game from July 6-9 to try out the Combat Evolution, the latest upgrade to the game.

The Evolution of Combat update includes a host of new features designed to add even more excitement and skill to the game. These features include the ability to dual wield weapons; the introduction of action bars; new abilities which unlock as the battle progresses and the new adrenaline bar fills; the ability to cast buffs and weaknesses on your allies and opponents respectively; the ability to produce critical hits and – finally – a whole host of new character animations.

Grab all the details on the RuneScape site.

    Think I will log in an see for myself. Runescape was fun for a long time, but I have outgrown it. My kids will have a nice fortune to inheiret from me on there though.

    This game brings back old memories... I used to play it in grade 6 and now I'm graduating from Uni. Although I will never play it again, its good to know it has survived all these years and getting better.
