Initially revealed at a gala press event in England this May, Runescape’s latest and most ambitious overhaul, dubbed Runescape 3, has gone live.
The revision features, among other things, a completely-revamped 3D graphical engine, a fully-orchestrated musical score, and a new player-driven approach to plotting. According to Jagex representatives, player actions will impact the game world dynamically and determine the direction of future story updates.

Runescape might not enjoy the headlines of World of Warcraft or other MMOs, but it's certainly a big deal. Over 200 million accounts have been created over the game's lifetime, a Guinness World Record.
