Runescape Games has a knack for delivering high-octane, adrenaline-pumping action games. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Bayonetta and Vanquish are just a few exceptional titles that the Japanese studio has produced, and that’s not even including its incredible reimagining of cheap rs gold old school cartoons that have barely had a great game attached to them in years. Last year’s Transformers: Devastation was a love letter to the ’80s Generation One line of Autobots and Decepticons, with full-on authentic voice acting from the original cast, dynamic third-person hack ‘n’ slash action and plenty of nostalgic vibes pulsing through the game.
This year, we’ll be kicking Foot Clan butt in the studio’s upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, another third-person action adventure that harks back to the classic SNES and arcade titles, like Turtles in Time, only dialed up to 11. The studio expressed its happiness with their game’s launch performance, and when they compared it with the original Borderlands’ release numbers, Battleborn was actually “tracking just ahead of where Borderlands was on the sales,” creative director Randy Varnell said on Twitch.
Today’s Runescape giveaway is a little different than what you might be used to seeing here at MMO Fallout. Each key is universal and can only be applied once to an account, so for the sake of not letting keys go to waste with people ignoring this to grab doubles, the giveaway is IP locked. You can’t apply more than one key to your account, even if you play more than one game on the list, it won’t work. The keys are good until May 31st, so if you’re having some trouble deciding which game to use yours on, you have some time.
We do a lot of comparisons back to the first Borderlands back in 2009. That launch felt similar to us. Ultimately Borderlands was extremely successful new game for us. Borderlands 1 went on to sell almost 8m units in its lifetime. Battleborn is actually tracking just ahead of where Borderlands was on the sales. We think it’s going to be a game that works like that – a decent, Divergence Online is an upcoming hardcore sandbox Runescape MMO by developer Stained Glass Llama, dubbed a spiritual successor to pre-CU Galaxies and set to hit Steam as soon as Valve hits the launch button.
Its closure prompted widespread calls for Blizzard to reconsider its position on “legacy servers,” whether fan-produced or official, which run an older version of the game. Apart from being a service to veteran players, it also helps preserve the history of something that is, by its nature, ephemeral. Some games like Runescape actually run official legacy servers already, so making a request to Blizzard to do the same does not, from the outside, seem like an unreasonable position for a fan to take at all.
Runescape game hopes to bring Runescape back to the glory days of runescape gold sandbox games, one that predates Youtubers and streamers using their alleged popularity in order to bully developers into giving them free stuff. In a recent blog post, Ethan Casner makes an ultimatum against what he calls ‘Runescape Gaming Yelp Reviewers:’ No Runescape game keys will be given to people offering good reviews in exchange. Solid launch and we’re seeing steady and growing user counts on all three platforms and we’re hoping that word of mouth is going to take us even further.
