What's Next? A Message From Mod Keeper

Hey ‘Scapers,

Happy Easter! As we mentioned back in February, we want to give you more visibility on what's coming your way. We've been so happy seeing you all hopping into the Blooming Burrow, restoring the City of Um's Owlery and trying out updated combat, built around player feedback and Beta Worlds.

While there's work going on behind the scenes across the RuneScape team to give you a longer-term view of our plans, we have gone back to basics. We've been reshaping how we design, plan, develop and operate - no part of the development process has been off the table. We've also been bringing you closer to development with more Dev Diaries, Livestreams, Player Voice Surveys and conversations with the team in our Official Discord too! This is all in the aim of further embedding player voice in everything we do.

To that end, we're releasing a new Player Voice Survey in the coming weeks that will be guiding our priorities for what we build on for the future! Your feedback is crucial in how we want to operate going forwards and will help shape what our future updates look like. We're looking forward to your responses to that survey!

We want to continue our focus on delivering more updates players have been guiding us to, and with that in mind we want to give you a heads-up on what's coming your way!

  • April: New Quest - Requiem for a Dragon. Our headline update will be a new Quest arriving in the latter half of April. We don't want to spoil too much right now, but expect to see familiar faces and foes - an unlikely encounter and an emerging threat that looms over mysterious ruins... We'll be sharing more about this in the coming weeks, so get ready to see what's in store!
  • May: Community Hitlist and Environment Update - May will be an important month for us to deliver some much-needed player-focused updates tapping into your recent feedback. Rellekka will be receiving a graphical update and we've got Community Hitlist updates making their way into game. These contain some much-requested changes as well as accessibility improvements (like our new High Contrast Mode), which are areas players informed us to address.
  • June: New Summer Event - We've got a Summer update on the horizon where things will be heating up. We're excited to reveal more details on this closer to the time!

RuneScape has a bright and exciting community-informed future ahead of it and we can't wait to see what Gielinor looks like when it's crafted by both developers and players working more closely together.

See you in Gielinor!
