Event: 300 Million Account Party
The celebration continues....

In case you missed it, the 300 Million Account Party is well underway! As you skill throughout the game, look out for Balloon Fragments - every 200 you return to Party Pete earns you a Balloon.

Our latest Prime Gaming drop arrives tomorrow!

This month your Prime Gaming benefits will net you a new cosmetic and five Knowledge Bombs that each boost your XP by 1.5x for 1 hour! Just remember to use them AFTER Double XP LIVE, as they won't stack with the current event.

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.
