Sign up between the 1st and 19th of June for the chance to help define one of the biggest updates in RuneScape’s history. In recognition of the commitment shown by long term RuneScape members, anyone with 12 or more consecutive months of membership will have full, unlimited access to the beta from day one! If you meet this requirement, you’ll be informed that you’re automatically eligible for full access when you sign up. In addition to this, they will be choosing remaining pool of players who apply to take part. Sign up is still required to be able to take part in the beta program.

To celebrate the beta sign up launched the Combat: a new area on our website devoted to giving you information about this epic update. Head over to the Combat and you’ll see all the latest news about the Evolution of Combat, and a sneak peak at some of the upcoming changes; this week, you can find out more about new abilities! There’s also a new forum where you can discuss all things combat-related.

Today sees the next instalment of Behind the Scenes, with the very first look at the Evolution of Combat in-game! For those of you interested in swaggering about in the latest and greatest fashions – whatever the slimy, critter-ridden dungeon or sun-swept fishing spot you find yourself in, have a really special update planned for July. Sometimes it’s not all about the XP, it’s about looking good while earning it. More to follow in the next few weeks! Talking of cosmetic makeovers, Yelps and his Squeal of Fortune are also getting updates in July, including a brand new wheel, aimed just at the free game.
