Runescape 3 launches on July 22 as a browser-based title running on HTML 5, a feature that removes the need for Java or other plug-ins. Runescape 3 continues the free-to-play, MMO series, and will feature "improved graphics, longer draw distances, an upgraded camera system and superior audio," developer Jagex says. Runescape 3 will also post seasonal high scores that allow players to compete on weekly and monthly leaderboards.
Runescape 3 throws players into Gielinor's Sixth Age, where they will be able to directly influence the world's scenery, inhabitants and future for the first time. The game will kick off with the premiere of its worldwide community-focused event, The Battle for Lumbridge.
