RuneScape released a new variant of its game engine, and the recent RuneScape NXT comes with enhanced rs 07 gold gameplay experience and stellar graphics. Even when compared to the bug-riddled mess of Silent Hunter 5, this is a step backwards for the franchise. Jagex plans to phase out the previous Java-based client soon, depending on how well NXT’s launch goes. The developer says this will free up resources needed to make further improvements to NXT instead of maintaining two clients. For now, players using NXT will be playing with users of the old Java client, and will retain their progress over both versions.
Let that sink in for a second. A game released in 2001 and was in its prime in 2007 is only getting its first raids fourteen years later. When I saw this news, I thought it had to be horrifically out of date, but nope. Raids are coming to Jagex’s Runescape as part of the game’s July update. If you thought real submarines were claustrophobic, just wait until you find yourself stuck staring at an almost static screen for hours on end, unable to look away unless you flee to the bridge of your surfaced sub or browse a map.
There’s absolutely no sense that you’re on a submarine at all: you can’t walk around it, you can’t interact with the various stations and your officers are merely character portraits that represent your powers of delegation. Jagex Games Studio has announced that new content for “RuneScape” will be released in 2016 to celebrate the game’s 15 year anniversary. The founders of “RuneScape” will be returning to design a new quest. A new skill and game client technology will also be introduced in the coming year. I consider any version of Runescape which isn’t shaded strictly in primary colours to be witchcraft.
The news that Runescape now has a standalone client, another round of graphical improvements and is moving away from Java is rank heresy. From today, anybody can download and play Runescape NXT, an all-new engine and client released as part of Runescape’s 15th anniversary. The view distance has been quadrupled, dynamic lighting and shadows have arrived, as has real-time reflection, refraction, ambient occlusion and physically correct light scattering. They’re the basics of your average PC game, cheap rs gold but in Runescape? I’m not ready for this futuristic world.
Andrew and Paul Gower founded “RuneScape” back in 2001. 15 years later the duo are returning to design a special “Gower Quest”. This new content will launch in the Spring of 2016 to kick off celebrations for the fantasy MMORPG’s 15th year anniversary. It has been confirmed that a new skill called Invention will be added to “RuneScape”. Invention will allow players to personalise weapon and armour. This new skill will also make equipment more technically advanced. In a newly released promotional clip, captions underline the main differences that the new client brings.
From enhanced graphics to a larger field of view for players, and from texture mapping of high resolution to polished lighting effects and shadows and realistic water effects, everything comes together to assist RuneScape in being great again. The latest client for RuneScape NXT went live on April 18, and gamers can download it from the official Runescape website. The gaming company catered to the needs of every gamer and released client versions for Windows, Mac and Linux. The developers point out that RuneScape NXT was coded so it makes the most out of every gaming rig, and offers mesmerizing graphics to boot.
