Iconic MMO Old School RuneScape launches on iOS and Android today, after 1 million players pre-order it on mobile.

Tuesday 30th October 2018, Cambridge, UK – Old School RuneScape has today become the first mainstream PC MMORPG to launch in full on iOS and Android devices, Jagex has announced. The expansion onto mobile delivers interoperable cross-platform play, enabling players to jump from PC to mobile platforms and back again.


The game's much-anticipated arrival on mobile stores will fulfil over one million pre-orders or pre-registrations for the game placed by mobile gamers in its build to launch. In addition, a further million mobile gamers are already enjoying Old School on Android, following its Members' Beta and soft launch over the summer.


Offering hundreds of hours of adventuring in the free-to-download app, Old School RuneScape joins other popular subscription-based entertainment apps, such as Netflix, Spotify, and YouTube Premium, as it becomes the first mainstream game to transfer its monthly membership1 offering to mobile. Membership provides players with additional content, skills and quests.

John Colgrave, Producer, Old School RuneScape, said:

"Delivering the same wealth of content as its PC counterpart, expanding Old School RuneScape's availability to mobile devices is an incredible achievement and one the team is extremely proud of. Its arrival on iOS and Android is something our community has been exceptionally hungry for and, through beta and soft launch, we've worked closely with them to refine and optimise Old School's mobile interface, including the introduction of a customisable, one-touch action button, and intuitive touch-screen controls."


Phil Mansell, CEO, Jagex, said:

"Today's launch of Old School RuneScape on mobile leads the charge as we bring two of the world's most popular MMORPGs to the world's most popular gaming devices. We believe in taking our living games to wherever our players want them and, with the mobile editions offering full and seamless cross-platform play with PC, players can now continue their adventures on either platform and on the move. The arrival of Old School RuneScape on mobile, and our ongoing work to also bring RuneScape to mobile, is testament to our investment in the continued growth for both titles and building our vision for living games."


Old School RuneScape is part of the $1 billion RuneScape franchise and is based on the iconic MMORPG as it was in 2007. Featuring adventures for solo play through to 100-player strong raids and delivering new lands and new adventures that take it far beyond a purely nostalgic vanilla experience, Old School RuneScape's popularity has continued to grow in its five years as a living game.


Old School features polled content that must be voted into the game by its players before being put live. Recently revealed content being polled includes a whole new territorial expansion – The Kebos Lowlands – which would bring a mix of low to high-level quests, monsters, and activities to the game. Future proposed content includes a new skill – Warding – and a lost elvish city, all subject to player backing.


Old School's competitive gameplay has made it the #1 MMORPG in competitive gaming thanks to the gripping Deadman tournaments. Streamed live on Twitch, the tournaments, plus all the other Old School streams, has made Old School one of the most-watched titles on the network.


Old School RuneScape is the first of two Jagex titles heading to mobile devices. The other,RuneScape, is currently in its own Members Beta on Android.

The Long Journey Home - Release Trailer


In The Long Journey Home, a misfit crew finds itself stranded in space after mankind’s first experimental jump drive goes wrong. At the wrong side of the universe you’re alone, injured and your spaceship is falling apart. The only way back home is through the universe.

The Long Journey Home is a narrative-heavy rogue-style game where each universe is based on a random seed. Only some of the game’s content is available in each run like four out of the eight major alien races. The quests that you find and are offered can also vary with each run, depending on which crew members you have with you, luck, or how you interact with the different aliens.

This is also a goal built heavily around replay. Unlike most rogue games, you don’t gain power between runs. Instead, you gain knowledge – how the alien races think and are best dealt with, how to turn around negative situations, and where to find quests and opportunities. Sometimes, aliens will approach you for favors or will hunt you for your life.


However, to survive and thrive at the other end of the galaxy, you’ll need to be proactive. Explore ruins for technologies. Figure out how to flatter and bribe cultures into helping you. Ask for work and follow up on gossip. The more you learn, the better are your chances of making it home.

A successful run currently takes about 5-6 hours real-time, though you’re unlikely to get that far the first time through and there’s plenty more to see and do even after that! Try different seeds, crews, and approaches if you’re having difficulties. There’s always a way to progress, even in the worst of situations…

In addition, keep in mind that The Long Journey Home is a challenging game and on your attempt to get home you’ll fail multiple times! You have to adapt to friendly and hostile aliens as well as different planets’ geographies. Be sure to check every planet’s details before attempting to land and getting your hands on valuable resources, as some are dangerous and you’ll take damage simply by being there, while others have high wind, gravity, and temperatures that make piloting extra dangerous.

Netmarble Releases Massive ‘Lineage 2: Revolution’ Update Featuring New Orc Race And More


LONDON - October 24, 2018 – Today, Netmarble Corp., released a huge update to the popular massive multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG), Lineage 2: Revolution, including an all- new playable Orc race with unique class mechanics, an increase in max level, a new territory and more!

New Orc Race Added
Playable Orcs have been added to Lineage 2: Revolution with their own unique class mechanics that separate them from the existing races in the game. Players can choose from three different Orc classes including Orc Raider (Warrior), Orc Monk (Rogue) and Orc Shaman (Mage). Orc players will have a new starting location – The Southern Immortal Plateau, begin at level 180 with 500,000 Combat Power and will be rewarded a set of SR grade weapon, armor, and accessory. Orcs will use different weapons from the four existing races including Orc-exclusive claws, two-handed swords and wands. With the new Orc race, new Orc-exclusive quests and fields have also been added.


Faster leveling-up will also be an added benefit due to growth boosting events where items such as EXP, Adena, and equipment will be rewarded at each level, from level 180 up to level 260, achieved by characters.

New “Avento” Territory Added
With the addition of Orcs, the max player level has been expanded to level 320 and a new territory, Avento, has been added along with expansions to Main Quests, Weekly Quests, and Sub-Quests. Avento consists of three regions – Dragon Valley, Promised Land and Ancient Dragon Mountain Range – where 12 new Monsters and 21 new Monster Cores await players.

With this update, the Tower of Insolence will be expanded to Floor 145. Players can expect greater rewards with the expansion and the added auto-progression to the tower makes gameplay easier for players having a hard time progressing to the higher floors.

Second Class Transfer - Part Two
Part two of the Second Class Transfer has been added so players can experience more skills, classes and new content. Like other races and classes, Orc players can start part two of the Second Class Transfer Quest at level 271 with Chapter five through seven quests available.

Fast Gameplay With Cross-Server Matchmaking
New and merged servers in North America and Europe will ensure smoother matching for co-op content and more competitive Fortress and Castle Sieges. Cross-Server Matchmaking will be implemented for multiple game modes including Honorable Battlefield, Temporal Rift Dungeons, Temple Guardian and Summoning Circle, allowing players to enjoy battles faster in an improved environment

Lineage 2: Revolution is available on iOS and Android. For more information regarding Lineage 2: Revolution, visit the game information website (http://l2.netmarble.com) and the official Facebook page (https://facebook.com/OfficialLineage2Revolution/).

The biggest ever RuneFest heralds the launch of RuneScape Mobile’s Members Beta.

Monday 8th October 2018, Cambridge, UK – Access to RuneScape Mobile's new Members Beta is being made available from today, Jagex has announced. This limited Beta marks the next step in bringing RuneScape to mobile devices, as the development team continues to work closely with the RuneScape community to deliver the optimum player experience over the coming months. Jagex made the announcement at RuneFest, its biggest ever player convention, held this past weekend at Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre.


RuneScape Mobile, which on full release will be available on both iOS and Android devices for free-to-play and subscribing players, features full, cross-platform interoperability with PC platforms, allowing for adventures to continue while on the sofa or on the move. The milestone announcement follows hot on the heels of Old School RuneScape Mobile, which has been enjoying a successful Members Beta over the summer, and is scheduled to launch on mobile devices on 30th October.


Further announcements from RuneFest came thick and fast this weekend:


The RuneScape team announced that 'Till Death Do Us Part', an all-new World Event in RuneScape and the first since 2016, launches today. Taking place throughout October, the event sees the game's version of the Four Riders of the Apocalypse emerge on Gielinor.


Additionally, the team introduced new quests and fan-voted content that will launch this winter, including the Mining and Smithing rework; the time-looping, investigative adventure 'Needle Skips'; and the final part of the Elite Dungeons trilogy, a new boss encounter for hardy adventurers that sheds light on the mysterious Ambassador.


Headline announcements for Old School RuneScape saw the team confirm key content soon to be polled to players. This includes the elven city of Prifddinas, which launched inRuneScape in 2014. If successfully polled, the city would be reinterpreted and introduced into the nostalgic iteration next year. Entry to the city relies on the completion of a new Grandmaster quest, 'Song of the Elves' – which will conclude an Old School RuneScape questline for the first time since the game launched in 2013.


Furthermore, players will be polled on an expansion of the Old School-exclusive continent of Zeah. If successful, the content would see its unexplored lands to the west uncovered and expanded in 2019 with the release of the Kebos Lowlands, and feature a raft of new adventures and activities for players to explore.


RuneFest began courtesy of the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra and the world premiere of RuneScape Live: Gielinor in Harmony, a musical extravaganza that took the audience on an orchestral and story-driven journey through the world of Gielinor. Featuring a brand-new storyline written byRuneScape's narrative team, which saw a RuneScape and an Old School RuneScapeplayer complete a quest in each other's game world, Gielinor in Harmony set the tone for the revelries to continue.


RuneFest itself presented thousands of players with an immersive festival experience set in Rellekka, the Viking-inspired northern lands of RuneScape. In addition to keynote reveals and announcements, players completed activities based on the game's Fremmenik Trials, attended behind-the-scenes talks hosted by developers, and went hands-on with both RuneScape and Old School Mobile.


Phil Mansell, CEO, Jagex said:

"RuneFest is at the heart of our living games philosophy, and it has played an enormous part in growing our RuneScape games to become a $1billon success story. It brings the games, our players, and the Jagex team together to share an incredible experience that exists outside of the game. This was the biggest and best RuneFest ever, and reflects the continuing strong growth in the communities playing our games. RuneScape Live was also incredible, and I thank our team and the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra for an unforgettable night.


"We had a great time revealing our plans for RuneScape and Old School RuneScape over the coming months, and it was brilliant to see the reaction from our players both at RuneFestas well as on the live stream. We're just three weeks away from bringing Old School RuneScape to mobile devices, which has already been incredibly well received by players. The announcement that RuneScape Mobile is also beginning its limited Members Beta from today, and will open to more members over the coming weeks and months, means that both our communities will soon enjoy their adventures through Gielinor while on the move.


"Every year, RuneFest delivers a fantastic celebration of the games and our community, but it's also a great opportunity for us to look ahead to what's to come. Thank you to everybody who travelled to RuneFest's new home at Farnborough, and we're looking forward to returning next autumn."

ASTRO BOT Rescue Mission – Origins Trailer | PS VR



ASTRO BOT Rescue Mission is a brand new platformer, developed exclusively for use with PS VR. Take control of ASTRO the captain BOT and go on an epic VR rescue mission to save your fellow crew who are dispersed all over space.

The game takes full advantage of PS VR to invigorate the platforming genre with gameplay unfolding around you in 360 degrees. Your character reacts instantly and your jumps are ultra precise thanks to the increased depth of PS VR. While seated, moving your body lets you lean around corners to get a better view on the action and discover secret paths. You can also use your body to weave through the scenery and create a path for your character.

You will be running and jumping through city skylines, lush jungles, dark caves, and golden sandy beaches in 20 unique levels that all take advantage of PS VR. Each level features original traps and enemies, and contains 8 lost Bots for you to save.

To top it all off, six immense boss enemies stand between you and your lost crew. In VR, the scale of these juggernauts come through like never before and you feel incredibly small as they tower over you.

To guide your journey, you can rely on your trusted DUALSHOCK 4 controller which becomes the host to a bunch of cool gadgets: a hook shot, a water gun and ninja stars are few of the special weapons at your disposal. Use them in combination with your jumping and punching skills to blast off anyone standing in your way!

And if you are thirsty for more extreme platforming, the game offers 26 extra challenge levels specifically created to test your dexterity.

A new Hero is coming to PS VR, so join the ASTRO BOT Rescue Mission and be one of the first to experience the future of platform games!

New BBC VR film flies you to Berlin at the height of the Second World War


A powerful new virtual reality film launches this week from the BBC, in which viewers join the RAF on a bombing run during the Berlin Blitz.

1943 Berlin Blitz launches this Thursday on the Oculus and Steam stores. Viewers are put in the footsteps of BBC war reporter, Wynford Vaughan-Thomas, and sound recordist, Reg Pidsley, as they document their flight on a terrifying mission over Berlin.

Taken from the BBC Archive, Wynford’s commentary was one of the most ambitious and dangerous reports made during World War Two giving crucial insight into the war to those listening at home. The original radio broadcast went out over the airwaves on 4 September 1943, just a few hours after the plane landed safely back at RAF Langar in Nottinghamshire.


Viewers will experience the jeopardy and the excitement of the bombing raid, as VR transports them into the belly of Lancaster bomber ‘F for Freddie’. As the plane flies high over Berlin while anti-aircraft shells burst all around, the sense of danger is palpable, and justified - just four months after this flight F for Freddie was shot down over Stettin.

The Lancaster was the most successful heavy bomber employed by the RAF in World War Two and, along with the Spitfire, became something of a British icon in the wake of the war. More than 7,000 of the planes were built, flying upwards of 150,000 sorties.

Created by BBC Northern Ireland and Immersive VR Education, in partnership with BBC VR Hub; 1943 Berlin Blitz marks the 100th anniversary of the RAF and the brave, bold and groundbreaking journalism the BBC is built on. Wynford Vaughan-Thomas’s original radio programme is available to listen in full from Radio 4 Extra on BBC iPlayer Radio.

Peter Rippon, editor of BBC Archive, says: “We have been overwhelmed by the response to Berlin Blitz so far. People are finding it profoundly moving. The authenticity of the audio and the nobility of the characters involved, combined with virtual reality means audiences can now relive with past with an intensity not previously possible.”

Zillah Watson, head of BBC VR Hub, says: “This film is a wonderful example of how virtual reality can bring the BBC’s archive to life in a way we’ve never really seen before. VR adds a vivid, tangible dimension to an exceptional and extraordinary piece of journalism, and brings the past and future together beautifully - using a 75-year-old broadcast to demonstrate the very best of what this new form of storytelling has to offer.”

The new experience is available from Thursday on the Oculus and Steam stores for Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive headsets. It will also soon be available to watch in 360 on Oculus Go, Samsung Gear VR and Google Daydream. Additionally, Imperial War Museums will be showing the film at its Duxford and North museums over the coming months on selected dates.
