RuneScape 3 announced

Today Jagex announced RuneScape 3, the latest in its browser based free-to-play adventure series. Though the company was light on details about what the sequel will mean for the series, it did offer a few glimpses into the game.

The game is purported to run faster and look better, as one would expect from a sequel, but creative director Mark Ogilvie talked about some other changes coming to the world.

"RuneScape 3 marks a significant moment in RuneScape's history as the world enters the 6th Age," he said in the announcement. "All our recent content updates have been building up to this point, massive change is coming, and our players will be able to shape the game with the choices they make. Every single player will have the ability to shape the world."
