We’re delighted to confirm that we’re raising the player cap for the members-only RuneScape Mobile Beta!
Across Tuesday March 5th and Wednesday March 6th, a further 50,000 spots will be opened up for those wishing to explore Gielinor on Android devices. The cap will be raised in two batches to ensure adventurers on both sides of the globe have the opportunity to get involved. Specific timing will be announced next week, both here and on our social channels.
The RuneScape Mobile Beta continues to develop and grow. Recent updates include an overhaul to the NPC chat system (making chat clearer and easier to navigate), the introduction of more intuitive action bars and improvements to looting. There have also been a lot of interaction refinements to improve the recognition of tapping, swiping and dragging.
This cap increase is another step along the road to an open beta and, ultimately, a full release. Details on iOS availability will be announced at a later date
Of course, being a Beta, you should anticipate some imperfections. We are working very hard on ensuring RuneScape on mobile is every bit as playable as RuneScape on desktop, and we actively encourage players to send us their thoughts. Every bit of feedback helps. You'll be able to post your feedback on our new forum section that opens on Tuesday!
Full details concerning eligibility, restrictions and technical details can be found in the FAQ.
Thanks ever so much for your ongoing support.
The RuneScape Team
