While we’ve known this day was coming for a pretty long while, it’s still nice to get reminded, so consider this that reminder: Today marks the full OSRS Mobile launch, which stuffs the full classic sandbox MMORPG onto your cell phone because technology is pretty freaking amazing when you think about it.
The game’s release appears to have drawn a crowd as the announcement lauds over one million pre-orders or pre-registrations ahead of today’s launch. This is on top of the million players who were already in-game for the Android soft launch and summer Members Beta testing.
OSRS Mobile promises hundreds of hours of MMORPG gaming and the same wealth of things to do as the original PC version. It also marks the culmination of lots of work on the side of Jagex, who operated in concert with testers to refine OSRS Mobile’s interface.
“We believe in taking our living games to wherever our players want them,” said Jagex CEO Phil Mansell. “The arrival of Old School RuneScape on mobile, and our ongoing work to also bring RuneScape to mobile, is testament to our investment in the continued growth for both titles and building our vision for living games.”
Congratulations certainly are in order to Jagex for making this sandbox MMORPG a mobile reality. It will certainly be interesting to know just how popular this mobile edition of one of MMORPG gaming’s elder statesmen ends up being with players.

The population of the Old School RuneScape mobile beta is about to balloon by a pretty significant factor. Jagex has just announced that all Members (AKA subscribers) to either RuneScape or Old School RuneScape who have an Android device can now join in on the sandbox MMO’s testing.
OSRS Mobile will roll out a staggered release for every Member of RuneScape and OSRS on PC right now, bringing in approximately 250,000 people over the next few weeks. The so-called “members beta” will be for Android devices.
“Since announcing our plans to bring both RuneScape games to mobile, the community has been clamoring to get their hands on the titles,” claims director of game development Conor Crowley. “Old School RuneScape Mobile has been running 24/7 in invite-only closed beta for the past couple of months, and, with development progressing really well, we wanted to share this progress with the most important people: our members.”
Rollouts for the mobile edition of OSRS beta are starting today and fans should keep their eyes on the game’s website for details. And if you’re among those looking to play on iOS, then the devs want you to know that they’re working on it. Meantime, bear in mind the beta build of the game is functional on the following devices:
- Samsung Galaxy S6
- Samsung Galaxy S7
- Samsung Galaxy S8
- Samsung Galaxy S9
- Google Pixel
- Google Pixel XL
- Google Pixel 2
- Google Pixel 2XL
- One Plus 3
- One Plus 3T
- One Plus 5
- One Plus 6
That’s most definitely a significant ramp-up in testing scale! Of course, whether all of the current Members take the invite or not is entirely up to the players, but it certainly sounds like the mobile edition of Old School RuneScape is very nearly ready for prime time.
