RuneScape 3 has been announced by Jagex, and according to Massively, it seems to be building on RuneScape 2 instead of being released as something entirely new. Players will be able to log into the game with existing accounts, keep their avatars, and will run a bit faster thanks to its HTML5 engine and web GL. Players will still be able to play using Java if they wish. More information is expected in the coming weeks. A video announcing RuneScape 3 is below. It’s out something this summer.
