edited September 2015 in Runescape
Jagex has just released a new version of Runescape known as Darkscape it contains all of the Runescape 3 content that was available shortly before June 2015.
Unlike normal Runescape no membership at all is required and every player has access to all content from the very beginning, this includes all quests, areas, and bosses.

New Info
Apparently the lead developer for Darkscape is the lead dev from Darkfall before he left to go to jagex, thats awesome. I'm going to try this now.

The Basic Breakdown.
100% Open World PVP nowhere is safe not even towns.
Towns, banks, and some areas will have level 138 Guards who will attack any PKer on sight and as of now are seemingly imortal.
You start from scratch even if you had played Runescape before everyone gets a clean slate.
Weapons and armour above level 75 have a drastically reduced gain over their previous tiers.
Legacy combat basic easy to master Runescape 2 style combat but with the new Runescape 3 interface, no action bars in this version.
Free trade and the Grand Exchange are still present.

Members Benefits
If you are a Runescape member you will get some benefits over free-players.
50% experience bonus.
Double the normal bank space.
One extra item kept on death, unless skulled(Runescape's way of labeling PKers).

I heard about this and for nostalgia's sake figured I'd give it a go and so far it's pretty fun. The economy is just starting so acquiring items and gear is really difficult and the starting zones are still kill on sight but once you hit around level 25-30 things quickly begin mellowing out and players begin judging risk vs reward.


Friendly tip if you want to be a melee warrior if you do the Waterfall quest it will instantly give you enough experience to jump to level 30.

    It's a redone Runescape, man.  Now go back to your gear treadmill and beat that boss so you can beat the next boss so you can beat the next boss.  You know, so you can beat the next boss.

    Definitely going to give this one a go. Thank you for sharing.

    Darkscape is pretty epic! If you are looking for OWPVP and massive pvp fights in an extensive risk vs. reward system Darkscape is where its at!! Here is a linkto my youtube channel where my clan put's up vids of the antics in the game: EXPLICIT CONTENT WARNING: Vids may contain swears and excessive trash talk: 


    Cheers! Hope to see you all in game soon!

    Do they have WASD movement? I need a game for my chromebook but really like WASD movement.
  • jdamusojdamuso Member CommonPosts: 2
    No, wasd is camera view controls.The game uses ground click "walk here" movement. We all prefer wasd movement, but you quickly get used to the conrols.
