Jagex, creators of one of the world’s largest free MMORPG games in Runescape, has announced today that Twitch.TV will become and integral part of the game client.
This is actually pretty cool.
Agreed. I think pretty much everyone had a Runescape phase, so it's nice to see that they are keeping up with the times, even as the gaming stage is becoming more social.
lol I played this game sooooo much. I'd say at least 9-10 yrs.
I play the game hardcore for about 9 years. I am actually one of the first people to play the game.
Nice if more get on board with this it will put heat on companies like xsplit to be competitive with their prices in the long run
Not only will they have to be competitive, but they are going to have to be feature filled. If we can already stream the game and our Webcam, that's good enough for most people.
Ahhh Runescape! Just when you thought it was dead, it goes and pioneers something else to put it right on the map again. Good form
I'm not sure that it fell off the map. Sure, it hasn't enjoyed the millions of concurrent players that some other games have, but Runescape has been around for 13 years now. It will live on!
I have high hopes for the future and more mediums get stream integration.
That is huge for Jagex. Congrats.
I quit RS with all the changes they made to the fighting in the game, personally I thought it was better before then. 'Old School RS' and 'RS Classic', those were the best. Maybe I will get back into those when I have the money for membership, though the twitch feature may only be available in the updated version, idk.
