Gamers Descend On Battersea Evolution For The Annual Runefest
Mon 26 Sep 2016
On Saturday 17th September, thousands of passionate gamers descended on Battersea Evolution for RuneFest 2016, the largest celebration of the iconic MMORPG (Massively multiplayer online role-playing games) to date. This year’s event had an Eastern Lands theme, taking inspiration from the Arc, one of Runescape’s latest updates focused on recently discovered islands. Attendees had the chance to meet the people behind the games, and the developers had a chance to be re-energised by their fans. The thousands of gamers around the world that couldn’t be at the event in London could watch all the action and seminars online.
In accordance with the community theme, Jagex brought several high profile YouTube and Twitch personalities that live stream and make videos about Runescape. The Gower brothers, founders of Jagex and the original creators of Runescape, were also in attendance and were greeted with cult icon status.
