RuneScape Mobile’s much-awaited update that was announced last month is out now. Named Fresh Start Worlds, this new event does exactly what it says on the tin, it gives newcomers and veterans alike a chance to relive RuneScape’s magic all over again.
It’s not exactly a reboot but in Fresh Start Worlds, players can create a new character in a special world created entirely for this event. The aim is to level the playing field since original RuneScape players are leaps and bounds ahead of any newbies. Nothing gets carried forward in this new world as there is a new economy, Grand Exchange, much higher scores and accelerated XP.
Fresh Start Worlds will ensure that everyone playing RuneScape restarts their campaign for the four months the event lasts. It is going to be a heavy dose of nostalgia because players will experience all of Geilinor once again. Famous cities, iconic quests, and the most entertaining boss battles will all come back with added bonuses. There are lots of new rewards like cosmetic sets, pet skins, and more to be won as well so things will still feel fresh.
Speaking about this monumental update, Jendrik Posche, RuneScape’s Executive Producer, said: “We’re really excited for the potential that Fresh Start Worlds has to grow RuneScape’s player base and help our players rediscover this amazing game. Fresh Start Worlds is a moment in time where players new and returning can unite and reignite that magical feeling of starting out on an adventure as a community. More importantly, the adventure doesn’t end when the event is over, with players able to transfer their characters seamlessly to the main game, complete with all the achievements and cosmetics they’ve earned along the way.”
The last part is pretty cool because it allows players to continue their journey with this newly built character that they have worked on for four months. Don’t forget that competitiveness doesn’t disappear just because it’s a reboot. The first two months will task players with a race of the Wild Firsts and only those with sufficient RuneScape knowledge will be able to make the most of it.
