Jagex has announced that over a million players have checked out the "old school" version of RuneScape. RuneScape "Old School" hearkens back to earlier days of the game, all the way back to 2007.

More than one million retro gaming fans have flocked to RuneScape Old School since Jagex, the UK-based developer, launched a 2007 version of the multi-award winning RuneScape in February this year. Having been released following the mobilisation of over 450,000 players who voted for the launch of Old School, Jagex have continued to empower the community to take control of the developmental direction by allowing them to vote on every update that goes into game.

Following a landslide vote where over 89% of the community voted for the introduction of the God Wars Dungeon to Old School RuneScape, this release heralds in a new era of boss hunting and group gameplay. Featuring four new bosses, K’ril Tsutsaroth, Commander Zilyana, General Graardor and Kree’arra, players have a chance of obtaining a legendary Godsword, the most powerful weapon known to Old School. In addition, new sets of high level melee and range armours and high level weapons including the Staff of the Dead and the Armadyl Crossbow have also been added to the game.

    Which is what a lot of people thought, then they realized that it won't get any updates and are leaving in droves because they did everything again.

    Why would anyone want to play the old Runescape????  The new one is a 1000% better IMO.
