Old School RuneScape is here to stay! In the poll run during February 2013, RuneScape members voted for the re-introduction of a version of the game from August 2007. Although the poll didn’t reach the 500,000 target needed to offer the service free to members, we have decided that for an initial six month period, starting from the 1st of March 2013, Old School RuneScape is open to all RuneScape members at no extra charge!
It’s our aspiration that this newfound community will flourish and continue to grow, and so far you’re off to a fantastic start. Once September rolls around, we'll review the level of support in Old School Servers. If they're still high, we'll maintain the level of service and keep it at no extra cost for RuneScape members.
A small dedicated development team will stay working on Old School RuneScape to provide maintenance, guided by regular community polls to decide any changes to the game. We’ll also be adding in more of the modern game’s anti-bot technology so we can maintain our zero tolerance stance against cheating, botters and gold farmers across both services.
If you're a RuneScape veteran hungry for nostalgia, get stuck right in! As long as you're a RuneScape member you'll have access, and while you'll start afresh on the 2007 servers, it won't affect your progress in the main game.
