RuneScape 3 This Summer

Jagex is working on RuneScape 3, reports PC Gamer, saying this free-to-play browser MMORPG update will be released this summer, though they are not clear if it will just become RuneScape at that time, as did RuneScape 2 when they did their first such upgrade. Here's word:

Wait, did Jagex just skip a number? Nope, RuneScape 2 showed up way back in 2004, and it assumed the moniker of RuneScape to serve its role as an overhaul of the original. RuneScape 3 might similarly shed its numerical appendage once released, since its incoming changes keep the core game the way it is now and instead focuses on client and engine improvements.

Jagex says existing avatars and accounts will carry over and continue seamlessly in RuneScape 3′s new adventures. It’ll also keep maintaining a Java-based client for old-school enthusiasts and those with lower-end hardware. The new hotness, however, is the arrival of a sleek HTML5- and WebGL-based client that boasts a visual boost across the board—sharper graphics, increased viewing distances, deepened colors, and other perks. The Wipeout-like HexGL is a worthy demonstration of what that combo of browser-based gaming looks like.
