For iOS owners, Winter 2017 has been a long time coming - but we're delighted to finally say that the RuneScape iOS Closed Beta will kick off on May 11th.
WHAT IS IT?
The RuneScape iOS Closed Beta is the first chance for owners of Apple iOS devices to get their hands on the in-development smartphone version of their favourite MMORPG.
RuneScape on mobile is fully-cross compatible with the desktop and Android versions, so you can pick up from where you left your adventure on PC and vice versa.
The first wave of sign-ups will arrive on May 11th, with multiple sign-up waves to follow after that. A total of 9,900 slots will be made available in total.
To access the RuneScape iOS Closed Beta, players must use the free-to-download TestFlight app. Once installed, the game can be launched normally from your home screen like any other app.
WHY ARE SPACES LIMITED?
The way TestFlight works restricts the number of players that can access the RuneScape iOS Closed Beta.
Development of RuneScape on mobile is ongoing. It's the complete RuneScape experience, offering everything you get on desktop including brand new content like Archaeology, but players should still expect to encounter some issues. We urge everyone who takes part in the RuneScape iOS Closed Beta to send us feedback. Your experiences and opinions will help make RuneScape on mobile the best experience it can be.
HOW DO I SIGN UP?
- Go to the App Store and install TestFlight on your Apple device.
- Once the RuneScape iOS Closed Beta is live, a TestFlight link will be shared here: https://info.runescape.com/p/ios-closed-beta.
- Once the link has opened TestFlight on your iOS device, tap on ‘Start Testing’ (under the 'Join the Beta' heading).
- Follow the instructions within TestFlight to download the RuneScape iOS Closed Beta.
- Start playing!
When all available spaces in a wave have been claimed, the download link will disappear from TestFlight until more become available.
We'll be keeping you up to date about when new sign-up waves are on the way, and we'll give you 24 hours' notice each time to give you the best possible chance of not missing out.
WHEN IS THE FIRST WAVE OF SIGN-UPS?
The first 1,000 RuneScape iOS Closed Beta spots will go live at 17:00 (BST) on Monday May 11th.
WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS?
To play the RuneScape iOS Closed Beta you must have an Apple device running iOS 10 or later (the Beta requires a 64-bit CPU).
RuneScape membership is not required.
HOW DO I GIVE FEEDBACK?
- Open the TestFlight app
