Last chance for members to join

Runescape classic has been reopened to members as part of the game’s 10th anniversary celebrations.

Jagex has said members wanting to join the classic version have from between September 15th and 29th to ensure access as this is “the last time the door will be open to new players.”

Runescape VP Daniel Clough said: “Taking a trip back to Classic is gives our longest standing players a chance to reminisce and newer players a chance to see where their game has come from.”

He added: “Ten years after Runescape Classic opened its gates to adventurers, it seems a fitting time to close them to new players, as we look forward to Runescape’s second decade and to what promises to be a very exciting future for the game.”

Runescape Classic was first released in January 2001 and has been opened sporadically since the sequel was released in 2004.
