Runescape is now old enough to have anniversaries, fifteen of them in fact, and for the latest the game’s original creators – the Gower brothers Andrew, Paul and Ian – have returned to design a single, free to play quest. Descriptively if unimaginatively The Gower Quest, it features the brothers personified as mages within the game, a growing mystery and lots and lots of cabbages.
Where does the classic rate on your list of the best MMORPGs?
It’s even got its very own trailer, released last week:
Rewards are unique and the plot is silly, it’s designed as a light-hearted gift to a community that’s approaching adulthood. Those who’ve spent the entire of the recent past immersed in the game will find plenty a reference designed for them alone, with Jagex promising “a love letter packed with nods and winks to vintage RuneScape memes and jokes.”
