Anachronia - One Week On

Anachronia - One Week On

Fresh off our massive summer update, the Black Ops team have been hard at work cracking away on post-release changes based on your feedback. Check the patch notes section for more information!

Patch Notes

Here's just a few highlights from today's changes:

  • A 'never ask me again' option has been added to the bait pad in Big Game Hunter, providing all three traps are not built.
  • Failing an encounter in Big Game Hunter will no longer reduce the amount of dinosaurs you can hunt in the area. Leaving, teleporting out of area, or killing a dino will still make progress towards the encounter going on cooldown.
  • Trapper fragments can now be obtained via Big Game Hunter.
  • We've also added a new achievement that requires you to be caught by all dinosaurs in Big Game Hunter!
  • To see the full list of changes we’ve made this week, check out the unabridged patch notes here.

    Umbral Chests

    From midday on July 25th, anyone who buys the 450 Treasure Hunter key package will also get a free Umbral Chest, each of which contains a guaranteed purple prize! We’ve also buffed the other rewards you’ll find inside. This offer will be available until midday on August 22nd.

    Live streams this week

    Each week, we host developer Q&As, exclusive in-game first looks and more. And it’s all live on our Twitch channel, join us! Missed a stream? Don’t worry, we keep them all on our YouTube channel. Be sure to Subscribe to be the first to know.

    Tuesday, July 16th – 16:00 UTC (Game Time) – Let’s Play: Land Out of Time Survival Challenge

    This Tuesday, we’re up for something a little different: a Survival Challenge! You know what they say: “it’s a jungle out there”. Well, with the Land Out of Time, it literally is. Dinosaurs stomping, Vile Blooms chomping and all. So for our weekly stream, we’re throwing four streamers in the “arena” to find out who’s the best at surviving Anachronia: Maikeru, Omid, Wazzy & Mod Shauny.

    Fastest Agility Course run? Most effective Dino Hunter? Most fearless Slayer? Let the challenges begin!

    LootScape will be enabled (see all details above).

    Saturday, July 20th – 16:00 UTC (Game Time) – Omid Featured Stream

    This week, our featured streamer is Omid. Join him for a full two-hour showcase of the Land Out of Time update. Then, at 18:00 Game Time, he’ll be hosting his Controversial Podcast Ep.2 (with special guest) on the Land Out of Time.

    This featured stream is also an opportunity to grab a LootScape! That’s right, you can now receive in-game loot when you watch a RuneScape streamer. It works exactly the same way as our official streams, just watch Omid’s stream on (his Twitch channel) and you’ll receive the LootScape the following day.

    LootScape will be enabled (see all details above).

    Sunday, July 21st – 18:00 UTC (Game Time) – PvM with Mod Lee

    Our resident PvM expert Mod Lee knows no fear and he’s ready to take you all on another round of boss mass. From Vorago to the Kalphite King, the Corporeal Beast, the Angel of Death, if you’ve got a set to complete, an achievement to unlock, or simply want to hang out with friends and slay some, this is the place and time!

    LootScape will be enabled (see all details above).
