Plenty of RuneScape
fans -- one million
to be exact -- have been enjoying the nostalgia of the Old School servers that opened up last February
. And now those who aren't paid members can get in on all the fun; Jagex
is offering free access to everyone from now through Monday, November 4th.
This event grants players the full member feature set for the duration of the weekend, just in time to participate in the holiday events (like going for the black Halloween mask, the first new one since 2002). All progress made during the weekend will be saved and stored so players can continue their adventures if they purchase a membership anytime in the future.
Also on tap this weekend are the RuneFest 3 festivities (which players can catch via livestream
) and the launch of the new PvP worlds.
