Old School RuneScape claims 1 million users, adds God Wars Dungeon

While Jagex launched RuneScape 3 this year, it also launched Old School RuneScape, an older version of the immensely popular browser-based MMORPG. It’s now had over 1 million players, and to celebrate Jagex will release the God Wars Dungeon.

Players are able to vote for content updates to Old School, and the new dungeon won by a whopping 89 percent. It adds four new bosses, and the opportunity to pick up high-level armour and special weapons including a legendary Godsword.

Thanks, Polygon.
