As a little gift for you this Christmas we will be temporarily opening the F2P servers to everyone until the 31st December. There is no better time to tell your friends so they can join you this Christmas and take part in all the exciting events... or just take them into the Wilderness and do some PKing together. We want to give you something back after everything you have given Old School over the past 12 months.
Obviously, this will raise the question of the long term plans for F2P – the next few weeks of open access will help us see what happens when everyone can access the game in a free mode, and allow us to decide whether a permanent and full F2P option is viable for the future. We are still very much dedicated to ensuring that any F2P options can work for both Jagex, the game and the community. We’ll let you know how it went in the new year.
As a precaution against the possible increase in bots during this offer, we will be removing the ability to catch lobsters on F2P worlds.
