     Ehmm... Runescape is now in it's 3rd iteration, namely Runescape 3.

    So this is the first expansion for Runescape 3.

    It's been years since I played this. I don't even recognize the game from that screenshot.

    I wonder if characters were transferred from Runescape 2. Im just a tad bit tempted to log in and try this.

    I'm shocked!  My character with all my money and gear from more than 10 years ago is still there.  I even somehow remember my PIN to access my bank account.

    I'm a bit confused here, has it been released, or announced, and why isn't there a official news post anywhere about this?

    Even went through the effort of searching through their official forums and still couldn't find anything.

    The quest that will give access to the new city has been released, but you still can't access the city itself yet. I believe it's all being released in three parts with this being the first.

    Is it still click to move?  Would probably enjoy the game if not for the atrocious control scheme

    Same. 

    Although, I don't even mind click-to-move. I've played plenty of click-to-move games, single player and multiplayr. It's RS's implementation that drove me nuts, with the weird zig-zagging movement during navigation.

    That's the issue I have with it as well, also the delay from when you click and when the game physically reacts to said click.

    I actually started playing it again like a year ago, but the delay due to the low server tick frequency is pretty terrible. It doesn't stop me from playing, but it's surprising to me that they added the new combat system without changing the server tick frequency at all.

    I really wish they would just put in the effort to get the content working with a smaller period of time between ticks as it's easily my biggest issue with the game. It makes doing more action intensive things (relative to the rest of the content) like some of the boss fights rather frustrating because it's so unresponsive and you're forced to work around the delay.
