First Retro Override Drop - This Week In RuneScape

First Retro Override Drop - This Week In RuneScape

We asked – you responded – we came back and asked for more feedback, please – now it's finally here: your first community-voted cosmetic Override! Read on to find out how to grab your shiny new Dragon Scimitar, plus all the latest Prime Gaming goodies.

Marketplace: Dragon Scimitar Retro Override
The first community-voted release!

Earlier this year we asked you to suggest retro-themed Overrides that you'd want to see as future cosmetics in RuneScape.

We got an amazing response to the initial call, and over the past few months you've been guiding the development process, from voting to feedback.

Now our first release is finally here – it's the Dragon Scimitar!

We've listened carefully to your input, and the Scimitar comes with two variants – one that has a more retro feel, and a remastered version which gives you that vintage spirit but with more modern graphical features.

The full pack, available today, includes:

  • Replica Dragon Scimitar
  • Replica Dragon Off-Hand Scimitar
  • Dragonwing Scimitar
  • Dragonwing Off-Hand Scimitar

Pick it up in the Marketplace for 180 RuneCoins (200 for Free to Play)!

Requirements Changes

In the coming months, RuneScape will no longer support Windows 32-bit builds or graphics cards that do not support OpenGL 3.0 or higher. This change allows us to focus our technical development and testing resources on more commonly-used platforms.
