Weekly Update | 6th January 2020



Happy New Year! We very much hope you enjoyed whatever break you managed to get. We, of course, found little time to rest – Gielinor is too overrun with conniving bosses, grumpy dragons and argumentative dwarfs for us too slack off for too long.

Let's kick off 2020, shall we? Here are this week's patch notes.

Incidentally, RuneScape celebrated its 19th birthday over the weekend (!), and in turn this year is the third decade we've been involved with. Which is pretty incredible, if somewhat sobering! Thanks for sticking with us, folks. You're the best x
