Jagex recently issued a big expansion for Runescape called Lost City of Elves, adding some new high-level content to the MMORPG. It also adds a whole new central hub for those players, one that towers into the skies. To learn more about what the massive city of Prifssinas has to offer, Shacknews spoke to Jagex's Phil Mantell.

Mantell details the various zones contained within the tower's branches and the high-level content available for players. This includes various training areas to truly master certain aspects of the game, like combat, mining, and thieving. He also notes that more content is expected to hit the Lost City before the end of the year, making the structure even more expansive.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
