Old School RuneScape Theatre Of Blood Launches Today

Posted by GG Goblin On June - 8 - 2018

Old School RuneScape players can jump into a new raid for up to five players with Theatre of Blood today.

 
Voted into the game by ~90% of over 40,000 polled players, Theatre of Blood sees raiding parties running the gauntlet of battle-thirsty warriors, nightmarish creatures, and facing taxing, life-threatening puzzles. The final act is a bitter fight for survival against Lady Verzik Vitur, one of the last true-born vampyres left in Gielinor.

 
The new PvE raid features a new wiping death mechanic for Old School RuneScape, where individuals who die watch from the sidelines while their surviving teammates continue fighting that room’s challenges.

 
Once the room has been overcome, they will revive and continue into the Theatre with the rest of the team. However, if the whole party dies, the raid is lost. While earned rewards can be collected outside the Theatre, the number of deaths met by the party during their run through the arena negatively affects the chance of obtaining a unique reward.

 
Balancing and testing of the content was undertaken by some of Old School RuneScape’s best raiders and dedicated content creators who flew in from around the globe to get exclusive access to the Theatre and the developers behind it. Some of the testers were; B0aty, MMORPGrs, Mr Mammal, Zulu, Classix, DedWilson, Woox, Reed, and Dalek Cookie.

 
Today’s release follows last month’s launch of A Taste of Hope, the fourth part of the Myreque quest series, which sees players reach the doors of the Theatre of Blood, home of the feared Lady Verzik.

 
Mathew Kemp, Senior Product Manager, Old School RuneScape said:

 
“As always, we’ve collaborated closely with the Old School RuneScape community throughout the development of Theatre of Blood to make sure it was a worthy follow up to the game’s first raid, The Chambers of Xeric.

 
“With such an emphatic vote backing the raid, we knew it was important to deliver a really engaging challenge for players looking to run the dangerous gauntlet of the Theatre. With the invaluable feedback of our community, pro-raiders, and content creators, we have delivered a blood-sucking raid worthy of the anticipation!”
