The event is designed to celebrate all things Runescape and will feature themed areas and allow participants to enjoy a unique, that will never be seen outside the Runefest walls.
Jagex is holding the event as a celebration to thank the millions and millions of dedicated RuneScape players around the world and as a way of personally interacting with thousands of them in real-life. The Lead Developer and co-founder of Jagex Games Studio Andrew Gower said of the reasons for creating this event; â€œIâ€™ve always wanted to go to an event like this, but I realised the only way that was going to happen was if we put it on ourselves. So we are.â€
Mark Gerhard, CEO of Jagex commented; â€œThe team is absolutely electric with enthusiasm for this event, weâ€™ve always wanted to do a fan celebration for our players but crucially not just any old player convention â€“ we insisted that it would be something that was not only different from tired conventions, but an intimate, memorable and naturally incredibly fun, festive fan celebration. This is certainly going to be a landmark event and one of the best parties weâ€™ve ever had. The team and I are really excited about meeting and celebrating our biggest fans namely our epic community, we have also got a few surprises up our sleeve that Iâ€™m certain our players will love.â€
