Other players have different theories on what the new "island" would be actually.

One particularly interesting and possible theory is it is actually not an island but a hint on a the weather system Jagex has talked about in Runefest but eventually "shelved". It is possible it is just storms.


While ever other MMO is making huge updates for the summer, i can't see a "weather system" being the update, kinda moronic.

A ship heading to an island and then a huge roar, Obviously points to the fact its a new location , with monsters, this is clearly "fossil island", all the information points in that direction.

We would agree that regardless of the profitability of the loot box trade, the risks associated with them are worryingly high

I agree with you but if the video hadn't appeared that would definitely be on the list of possible meanings(although that would be a weird way to tease weather)

It just occurred to me that maybe the answer to the question which at the time was will osrs content appear rs3 was just a red herring! I mean osrs has lots of exclusive content why was no Fossil Island singled out for the answer! Maybe that was Jagex teasing this!

AFAIK, RS3 Jmods don't distinguish RS3 content from OSRS's. They may implement things differently though.

When they said "No. Not Fossil Island" in the stream, they also said they were looking into other OSRS content in construction and such but they would rather make their own construction rework if they would implement things like that.

I don't think they mean absolutely there won't be a new island with some some fossils on it in RS3 but even so it would not make it the OSRS Fossil Island... and evidently both the location and name of the new RS3 "island" would not be the same as the Fossil Island in OSRS. Story-wise, obviously there there was no Orthen and Kerapac with The Needle there.

What I think is, even if the island is Orthen, everything else would be different than OSRS.

So what does this all add up to? Well, the barge would have sailed and ideas have been used on the new "Foss..." so even less ideas would be left for the original OSRS in RS3.

How many times do I have to tell you I didn't say they needed to be the exact same thing But guesss what the NPC referred to it as TIFKAFI! So whether you agree or not that they can be the same thing that is what she said!And unless Jagex intends to never add another piece of land to the game that world map will eventually become no longer up to date

Of course, Jagex never said they would not add another piece of land to the game. In fact, if there are good ideas they will.

How many times do I have to tell you even if Jagex added The Land Out of Time to the north east of level 50+ Wildy, the origianl Fossil Island east of level 30 Wildy will still be on the Gielinor World Map for both games and that indicates the barge would sail to a different place they think is "Foss..." but the original one remain undiscovered.

I didnt read all the comments wanted to make sure I had that in just in case other
people mentioned the growls coming from the island in the teaser.

Either way.. great to have new areas to investigate.

Land Out of Time. The LOT. sandlot with a dino as the beast. world event where we have to get fossils from the beast ( through various inventions) instead of baseballs.

or kerapac is the beast and the needle is the ball.
