Jagex have just released some exciting new statistics following the first month of release for the highly anticipated Runescape 3. The free browser MMO title underwent massive changes across the entire game and launched to the general public on July 23rd. Despite some teething problems and black screen issues, Runescape 3's launch was widely considered to be a successful one; and these latest figures support that claim.
During the last month over 300,000 new players have signed up to explore the world of Gielinor. Runescape 3's hugely improved combat and questing has also see the return of 100,000 players that deemed the game good enough to reactivate their subscription.
?With the Battle of Lumbridge we were looking to give the players a new way to interact with RuneScape and place their mark on the world.? commented Phil Mansell, RuneScape Executive Producer, ?We?ve seen over a 150 million votes cast on how the battle campaign should be fought, with players making decision on everything from what kind of reinforcements they get to how they can support their chosen god with buffs and new units. Players have so many ways to affect the current battle, from killing enemies or donating resources to their chosen deity, and it is this player driven dynamic which puts the future of the game very firmly in the players? hands.?
Already one of the most popular free browser MMO games on the market, Runescape 3 is showing no signs of slowing.
