: When the Jagex team launched the latest version of RuneScape
in July, the hope was that
presenting the update as a brand new game to potential new players would lead to more people giving the long-running game a chance.
Just over a month later, and it would appear that said tactic has had the desired effect. More than 300,000 new players have joined RuneScape
over the last month, Jagex said today.
And the sizable update has also attracted plenty of past RuneScape
players back to the title, as just over 100,000 former players have now re-activated their accounts.
