Old School Runescape First Skill In 15 Years Thumbnail

While Runescape 3 has been around for a while, fans also enjoy playing the classic experience from the 2000s, known as Old School Runescape.

It doesn’t get as many updates as the more modern version, but that doesn’t mean changes don’t happen.

One massive change now coming to the classic edition of the game is the addition of a new skill, which will be the first one in 15 years.

Given how Old School Runescape works, the player base need to have a majority vote before any changes are done.

According to developer Jagex, this had the most support ever with 80% out of over 190,000 voting in favor of the addition.

Here’s the video summery of this upcoming update:

There’s also a long blog post about the announcement and what can be expected in the future.

The team hopes to work with the community to actually decide what this new skill will be, as that hasn’t been decided yet. Wanna jump in without starting from scratch? Consider picking up an OSRS Account.

Old School RuneScape is available and free-to-play on Windows PC (via the official website with Mac support, and Steam), Android, and iOS.
