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.
