This Week In RuneScape - 07/09/20

It's all quiet on the game news front this week. In fact, it's almost… too quiet. Like there's something mysterious waiting in the wings. Ooh, it gives us the chills!

Keep your eyes peeled next week for the fresh and tasty Penguin Hide and Seek rework, along with an extra-special surprise that will advance the story back on Anachronia. Intrigued? Tune in to this week's livestream for all the details!

Merch Store Update

We must have some expert clue hunters among us, because both the 2-pin Reward Casket set and the Gilded Armour pins are sold out!

If you were hoping to get your hands on a clue casket of your own, never fear - the enamel version of the Reward Casket pin is still in stock! Slide away the lid to discover the treasure within.

There's also a few more Tetracompass pins available, although these too are limited edition, so if you want one for your collection, you'll have to act fast.

Check out the full AngelsScapes range on the Official Merch Store page.
