At the beginning of the month, I gave a detailed breakdown of RuneScape for both new and old players. The re-introduction covered how the game works, the history behind the re-rolled servers, what RuneScape is exactly, RuneScape Mobile and much more. Within that post, I mentioned that even though RuneScape is a very old, the game still manages to achieve around 60,000 - 80,000 concurrent players, now that Old School RuneScape Mobile has launched that number has risen to 100,000.
For those that don't know, Old School RuneScape Mobile is exactly what it sounds like, it is basically an app that gives players the ability to train their accounts wherever they like, as long as they are connected to the internet of course. A Moderator for RuneScape named Mod Ed, has taken to Twitter after the launch of Old School RuneScape Mobile and posted an image, the image showcased that the game has reached 100,000 concurrent players, at the time of writing this there is 135,000 players, quite an achievement for a game that is famously old. Old School RuneScape Mobile can be downloaded from the App Store here and the Google Play Store here.
