What is RuneScape?

The World's

Most Popular Free MMO Most Popular Free MMO

Anyone can pick up and play RuneScape. RuneScape doesn’t require any downloads at all and can be accessed almost instantly via the web’s most popular browsers. RuneScape is consistently hailed as one of the most immersive free MMOs available on the web – so much so that it entered the Guinness Book of World Records in 2008 as the world’s most popular free MMORPG!

With over 175 million registered users, players can explore the realms and cities within Gielinor of their own free will, doing all they can to rid the land of evil forces and express themselves through their actions – whether helpful, mischievous or downright despicable...

What Makes RuneScape Unique?

Evolving World & Quests Evolving World & Quests

The world of Gielinor is truly enormous, with a mass of different cities, races, clans and dungeons to explore. Whether it’s practicing in the friendly, accommodating land of Lumbridge, discovering unsavoury characters in the rough-and-tumble docks of Port Sarim, or slaying other players and bloodthirsty monsters in the barren lands of the Wilderness, there’s a huge variety of things for players old and new to explore every single day.

RuneScape continues to expand all the time, but membership can open up whole new areas to conquer. A RuneScape subscription will grant you access to a world over three times larger than that found in the free game, with more than 167 additional quests to test your abilities. Subscribers will also be able to learn and practice 10 new skills, and will have access to 37 minigames that are available to members only.
