The principal version of Runescape is becoming a new event called The Grand Party now, featuring beloved NPCs such as the random event Sandwich Lady and RS Gold the celebration hat-wearing Wise Old Man. The Grand Party will dish out a package of fans, as well as an anniversary cape and ensemble. More anniversary articles will arrive throughout the year as part of the four-part questline Once Upon a Time, which Jagex explains as"a celebratory romp through Runescape's past, current, and also a glimpse of its future." This will start on January 25, and will run alongside the Elder Gods arc intended for the year. Speaking of Runescape's past: Old School Runescape, the alternate and retro variant of the game, is also getting some anniversary content. Beginning this Wednesday, January 6, OSRS players can team up with the Green Gnome Child for"a trek through the original haunts of RuneScape to unlock the protagonist of Memories and struggle with dragons and demons, finish with rewards including a 20th Anniversary Cloak and a Gnome Child devotion for player-owned house chapels." I choose to believe that this really is Jagex's strategy to officially enshrine among this game's most recognizable (and memed) characters, and I am not taking questions at this time. Outside of the games themselves, Jagex will also release a few anniversary merch, and also for me the headliner is a golden vinyl pressing for 24 hand-picked Runescape tunes, including the only Sea Shanty 2. Furthermore, comics publisher Dark Horse is partnering with the studio for a history of the game's first two decades. Jagex's beloved MMO Old School Runescape has become the most downloaded app in Buy OSRS Gold several countries in the first 24h of this release. With such numbers, Old School Runescape's playerbase will grow to more than 2 millions with more than 1 million players already playing the sport because the readers just beta launch.
