The free-to-play MMORPG uses RuneScape's legacy combat system.
This morning, Jagex Games launched their FTP sandbox PvP MMORPG, Darkscape. Set in an alternate game universe, the game content is completely free and includes areas of Gielinor that are typically reserved for Runescape members. Players will find that each area has different levels of risk and could be quite dangerous, with the benefit of valuable resources and high-level content for those who decide to delve deep into the lands.
Key features include:
- Open free-to-play PvP gameplay across the game world
- Legacy RuneScape combat system only
- Most valuable resources found in high-risk zones
- Items not stowed in a bank vault are dropped upon death
- RuneScape members benefit from double bank space, +50% XP and an extra item kept on death
"As big fans of sandbox survival games, DarkScape was born from an idea we first bandied around the studio a couple of years ago. Even while it's been on the backburner, it's stayed with us," said Senior Producer Conor Crowley. "Developing a new take on the world of RuneScape, one where PvP gameplay rules supreme, has proved very exciting. We spent time looking for a way to get DarkScape into the hands of players as soon as possible, so launching the game today is very much an experimental first step. That said, it will continue to evolve and further develop based on how players explore our fresh take on a deadly MMO experience!"
