RuneScape and Old School RuneScape Introducing Fresh Start Worlds

RuneScape Fresh Start Worlds

via press release

Today, RuneScape has announced that its Fresh Start Worlds in-game event will begin on 12 September to celebrate surpassing 300 million accounts. Fresh Start Worlds allows RuneScape players to create new characters on a special World where everyone begins on a level playing field. With a brand-new economy, Grand Exchange, rare tradeable rewards, and accelerated XP boost for fast levelling, there’s never been a better time to start over again.

RuneScape Fresh Start Worlds will run for four months, allowing players to rediscover RuneScape together as they return to landmark cities, memorable quests, skilling areas and boss battles, all with accelerated XP and gameplay boosts. Players will be able to return to the core game at any time with their newly levelled character and all their earned rich rewards – including new cosmetic armour, pet skins, alternative skill capes and rare tradable rewards. For those competitive Scapers’ there’s the added incentive of an 8-week competition focused on hi-scores and world firsts.

Old School RuneScape Fresh Start Worlds will launch in October and offer players a unique challenge and opportunity. Unlike in RuneScape, Old School Fresh Start Worlds will not benefit from an XP boost, meaning that players will have to rely on their wits to get ahead. It still offers the players the same Old School RuneScape experience players know and love, but they’ll be diving into a world that has a brand-new economy and hi-scores ready to be claimed. Six months after the launch, players will have their characters transferred onto a main game server to continue the fun for years to come.

“We’re constantly blown away by the dedication of our community in both Old School and RuneScape” said Phil Mansell, Jagex CEO. “Fresh Start Worlds is an opportunity for players both new and returning to start again as equals, experiencing the game together in world with a brand new economy, forging new adventures in a fresh world for the first time since our launch 21 years ago. Now really is the perfect moment to get back into RuneScape!”

Fresh Start Worlds launches as part of Jagex’s 300 million Account Celebration, a milestone event with activities across both RuneScape and Old School RuneScape. RuneScape players can join the 300 Million Party at the Grand Exchange and talk to Party Pete to get a free gift and more.
