A patchweek like an iceberg

This week update is slightly different than usual. This update is like an iceberg, a lot has changed but only very little is visible for all of you. The usual patches are accompanied by many changes to accommodate for RuneScape mobile. This does not mean we are close to release, but we are taking a big step in the right direction for sure.

Patch notes

The tip of the iceberg, also known as the patch notes, can be found in full detail here.

Mobile Changes

Last week we released a dev blog about RS mobile. In this dev blog we talked about what we have been working on recently and what we want to do next. Some of these changes are coming to RuneScape this week. Because these are changes for mobile you will most likely not be able to see them. Rest assured they are in today's update.
