The folks at Jagex Games likes Halloween and horror stories just as much as i do.
As we all know (well, at least we who likes Halloween) it´s that time of the year when you dress up as a monster (or something horror like), eat a lot of candy and watch horror movies all day long.
And of course (if you are a Gamer) play tons of horror games. And sure, Jagex F2P Mmorpg game "RuneScape", may not be a horror game. But that doesn't necessarily mean that RuneScape can´t become a horror game for a day (or two).
Because there will be Halloween themed quests (and a double xp weekend) in RuneScape during Halloween. In fact, the whole event will be live streamed via Twitch tomorrow (Saturday) from 2pm GMT.
30th October – Dark, trembling terror awaits brave souls in RuneScape, as the award-winning fantasy MMORPG from Jagex launches a horror story quest just in time for Halloween, coupled with a flesh-chilling double XP weekend for players – both new and old – looking to level up their characters. The new adventure, Broken Home, is best experienced by players in a dim room with the volume cranked up, as they try to steel their nerves and uncover the terrible secrets concealed within a haunted mansion.
After All Hallows Eve, Broken Home will become a permanent addition to Gielinor. The adventure is the first in RuneScape’s illustrious history to offer strong replayability for players. Once the story is complete, players can return to the haunted house to face new challenges and unlock additional rewards. Broken Home also features an open structure, allowing players to fully explore the corridors, nooks and crannies of the house as they try to find out how each of the inhabitants died.
Additionally, players brave enough to complete the mission in the first two weeks after launch will earn additional rewards, including a damage boost for exclusive use during this year’s ‘Death’s Door’ Halloween event.
The double XP weekend begins at 12.00pm GMT on Friday 31st Octoberuntil 12.00pm GMT on Monday 3rd November. In addition, this weekend will see Jagex play host to the RuneScape Clan Cup 2014 final at the studio in Cambridge, where the remaining clans in the competition will battle to be crowned this year’s top team.
The event will be livestreamed on the game’s Twitch channel at
