Old School RuneScape is set to debut on mobile platforms this winter, with RuneScape to follow.

According to Jagex, the mobile version of RuneScape will be the same game "you know and love", optimized for phones and tablets.

This won't be a separate mobile version, either. Players will be able to log out from their PC when they need to be AFK, and launch the mobile app to continue their adventure on the move, picking up from the in-game moment that they left it on PC... and vice versa. Both versions of the game - RuneScape and Old School RuneScape - will get the mobile treatment, with both clients being cross-platform.

Today, it has been announced that the MMO RuneScape will actually be coming to a mobile device near you soon. This game runs as a regular desktop program, but older versions were browser-based.

RuneScape first launched to the public in January 2001, and has since gone on to amass over 200 million registered accounts.

It's since been split into two versions, one remaining true to the classic, and the other an updated version with modern trimmings.

RuneScape might be old enough to drive, but it still has an active community, with thousands of players streaming on Twitch. That's right, the same great RuneScape but now on your smartphone or tablet.

And now, a new generation of players will have a chance to experience RuneScape in an entirely different way. The full RuneScape client be released in 2018. There is also a potential new audience that might have never played RuneScape before, much less even heard of it, and these mobile clients will be the entry point to a real, full-fledged MMORPG on mobile.
