RuneScape at MCM

On May 25, 26 & 27, the MCM Expo takes place in London’s Excel. RuneScape’s going to be there and so can you!

MCM Expo at London’s Excel is billed as the UK’s Biggest Pop Culture Event, and we’re going to be there! With a dedicated RuneScape stand we’ll be meeting players new and old at what promises to be a packed event.

We’ll be showing off our artist’s skills with live concept art demos, and giving MCM’s visitors a chance to get to grips with the game we all know and love. There will be plenty of Jagex staff on hand for you to meet over the weekend, and RuneScape’s lead designer Mod Mark has promised to make an appearance at some point! It wouldn’t be a Comic Con event without a few giveaways, and among the goodies that’ll go flying into the crowd will be event-exclusive t-shirts for the luckiest and most ardent of RuneScape fans. We’ll also have a RuneScape stand selling some beautiful concept art prints, and we’ll have some RuneScape artists on hand to sign the art. When you visit our stand you’ll be able to snap up a limited number of MCM-exclusive deluxe membership packs, and while you are there you can play some RuneScape or just check in on your social networks, using one of our laptops in the gaming area of the stand.

As any comic aficionado will tell you, bringing much loved characters to life on screen can be a dangerous business and - in an MCM exclusive panel - we’ll be looking at the challenges we face to do just that when giving RuneScape’s characters a voice. The panel will also give the audience a chance to lend their voices for some essential upcoming RuneScape crowd noises.

Check out the event in full over at www.londonexpo.com and hey, if you’re coming and want to be sure of bagging yourself some concept art, a deluxe membership pack and one of those t-shirts, mail us at MCM@jagex.com quoting your account name and we will get back to you with some more details.

Tickets can be purchased directly from the event's organisers and cost £16 per day, but wait! We’ve got two ways to win tickets for you and a friend. Our first competition is for the creative among you: we want you to send us a photo of the RuneScape-related costume you will wear to MCM if you should win the free tickets. Check out the full details here

If cosplay isn’t quite your thing, you can still win just by telling us why you should have free tickets. Get your thinking caps on and head over to here for more details. Both competitions close on 13th of May, so no time to waste!

Whether you win one of our competitions or just decide to come to and see us at MCM anyway, we can’t wait to meet you on the RuneScape stand – go MCM!

See you there!
