The Origins of Gielinor

It's very nearly time for the launch of The World Wakes: the Grandmaster quest that's set to shake Gielinor's very foundations. In the meantime, though, we have a surprise for you: the world's first reveal of The Origins of Gielinor. This motion comic chronicles the arrival of Guthix in the RuneScape world and follows him through its whole history - via the God Wars and the establishment of his edicts - all the way up to the Fifth Age.

For the first time, you'll see Guthix himself - not to mention Saradomin and Zamorak as they were during the God Wars. It's beautifully drawn by our talented in-house artists, fully narrated, and accompanied by a stirring orchestral score.

Most of all, though, it's all the backstory you'll need when The World Wakes launches next week, wrapped up in an exciting four-minute video. Click below to watch it right now!
