Earlier this week we published an update to the community in which we discussed how the COVID-19 situation would affect Jagex. The TL;DR is that we were going to be shifting to an entirely remote development studio. Every member of the Old School team is now able to work from home, and on Thursday we deployed a game update, albeit a relatively minor one, entirely remotely and without any issues.
Our game worlds are experiencing higher traffic than usual, likely as a result of increasing levels of social distancing. We want to ensure your playing experience remains unaffected, so we're going to temporarily open ten new game worlds. Should the level of traffic decrease then we'll look to remove these game worlds. The following worlds are now available:
|United Kingdom||363||2200 Skill total|
|United Kingdom||511||No requirement|
|United Kingdom||512||No requirement|
|United States||443||No requirement|
|United States||446||No requirement|
|United States||489||No requirement|
|United States||490||No requirement|
We’d like to thank you for your ongoing support, and we’ll leave you with this reminder. Please continue to listen to expert advice – be sure to regularly wash your hands for 20 seconds (just hum to yourself the first four bars of Sea Shanty 2 if you need help) and to follow the advice outlined by your government.
Keep yourself and your family safe, and we’ll keep RuneScape going (after all, the best place to self-isolate is in Gielinor).
The Old School RuneScape Team
