As many of you know, DarkScape was a game mode released by Jagex back in 2015 and shortly after closed in 2016.

I have heard a lot of speculation that this game mode will be returning sometime this year. What's the truth behind this idea? Where do I sign a petition to bring it back? I really enjoyed the mode and would like to see something happen with it much like Old School's version Dead Man Mode.

Considering it failed in just 6 short months after release, why would they rerelease it?

Plus every other pvp based update has failed as well pretty much, bar wbs in a way, so even more reason not to.

There are no concrete facts suggesting this: as you said, it's speculation. And unlike the speculation surrounding "RuneScape Remastered", any discussion of DarkScape seems to be wishful thinking at best. There are people who seem to want it back a lot.

There's been nothing said by Jagex that remotely suggests DarkScape is returning, though in fairness Jagex do sometimes like to tease us while saying nothing at the same time. This morning for example, Mod Osborne made a bunch of posts over in a Reddit thread:

https://www.reddit.com/r/runescape/comments/94am7t/jagex_why_do_you_refuse_to_communicate_on_core/


Osborne was, as expected, quite cryptic and secretive on specifics. However he did tell us that there are several large scale updates being planned or worked on that haven't yet been announced and will be announced at RuneFest. Some of those large unannounced updates may arrive this year.

So, of course people have started speculating on what those updates might be, and the return of DarkScape was bound to be something people begin to speculate about, because other than a few popular ideas that have come and gone within the community over the past few years, it's difficult to start to speculate on things we literally know nothing about.

I honestly don't see why they would re-release it. There wasn't generally enough demand in the PvP part of the game to warrant it, and the reason is felted so quickly. I felt this way even from its initial release so I'd bet that this is a long shot.

Bringing back PvP worlds would make more sense imo.

no it wouldn't


Agreed.

I mean how/why would it be all of a sudden "popular" if it wasnt when it was originally released?
