Game Update | Patch Week


Are you all keeping up with your New Year's resolutions? Because let me tell you, we sure ain't. The office has accrued more leftover brandy and mince pies than we can possibly eat, and that's how we're fuelling up for all the big updates later this month, including War's Retreat.

In the meantime, though, we've got chockloads of changes and fixes, new Twitch Prime loot, and, of course, a good old-fashioned January Sale.

Patch Notes

This week's bumper variety box of Patch Notes includes a makeover for General Bentnoze, fixes for an achievement in The Arc and, perhaps most excitingly of all, the ability to eat cooked bacon straight from the bank.

For an exhaustive list of the changes and fixes going live with this update, have a read through the Patch Notes here.

Twitch Prime: Month 4

The final month of our latest Twitch Prime promotion is live! Until February 4th, you can get the Umbral Bow, the Umbral Staff, and the Umbral Cloak, along with every other Umbral Cosmetic you haven't yet claimed. It's a real steal, and all you have to do is link your RuneScape and Twitch Prime accounts.

LGBT+ History Month

To celebrate LGBT+ History Month in February, Jagex will be inviting a few lucky players to visit the Jagex Offices, where they'll be treated to an office tour, a free lunch, and a Q+A with the J-Mods.

If you're interested in making RuneScape a more inclusive game, you can sign up by filling out this survey. You can do so here.

January Sale

Tired of queuing for hours in the miserable January weather? Treat yourself without the fuss in the Solomon's General Store January Sale! You can make huge savings on items like the Legendary Jungle Gorilla Pet, the spooky Risen Set, and the elegant Elf Ears Pack until the end of January.
