During RuneFest on October 11, Jagex announced the development of its new game set in the world of Gielinor, Chronicle: RuneScape Legends (working title). The title is coming to PC, Mac, tablet and mobile platforms in 2015, and will offer a collectible card game experience to players.
“We’ve been quietly developing Chronicle: RuneScape Legends since the start of the year to ensure that it’s not only a fun and compelling player experience, but one still very much interwoven into the rich lore of RuneScape,” said James Sweatman, lead designer of the game, in a statement. “We’re looking forward to sharing more information on the game over the coming months, especially in regards to Chronicle’s debut on tablet and mobile!”
Chronicle: RuneScape Legends is set within the pages of a living book, and focuses on quest building, allowing users to create their own miniature RPGs against enemies, including classic RuneScape boss monsters. The game will also include PvP combat.“RuneScape has been the foundation for Jagex’s success for more than 13 years, and it’s exciting to broaden the brand’s appeal with the compelling quest building gameplay offered by Chronicle,” added Phil Mansell, vice president of RuneScape. “Chronicle: RuneScape Legends represents an important step for Jagex as we add a new game into the RuneScape family. This announcement tops a strong 2014 where our flagship title has continued to thrive.”
At the end of September, Jagex announced a major new update for RuneScape proper, called Lost City of the Elves. This update opened a metropolis for exploration for players. More information on that update is available right here on Inside Social Games.
