Search all you want, but Jagex is keeping Old School Runescape’s 2017 Halloween Event under wraps as they do yearly. It’s a tossup as to what sort of Halloween event Jagex has planned this year, but it’s always different every year. If you’re looking for an MMO with dynamic events all year round, then Old School RuneScape (OSRS) is the way to go.
Even some top dogs of the MMO industry fail to maintain a vital and straightforward operational feature in their game: Seasonal Events. Yes, OSRS is one of the very few MMOs that care about mixing it up every year for each event. Take World of Warcraft’s yearly events like Hallow’s End or Feast of the Winter Veil, which has become as stale as the game. Rift is also a good and bad example of seasonal events gone wrong; ones that have gone the WoW path of repetition for tokens to turn in for event items.
For new players, these sorts of seasonal events in WoW or Rift can be entertaining, but only at first. Once the years go by, they’ll instantly notice that they’re repeating with the same exact quest, but with just slightly more prizes for their routine reward. These rewards, believe us, are worth a chunk of OSRS Gold. Anyhow, it quickly becomes tedious; a pointless exercise meant to stretch-out old content past its due date and cheat on the player base.
On the other hand, with RuneScape, it’s a different story because Jagex goes in hard to please their players. Each seasonal event is new and built from the ground up with unique quests, stories, and rewards. One might make the argument that OSRS is simple, which makes it easier to put in new content on the fly compared to WoW. Besides, Jagex doesn’t have to have add-ons, but they still do.
If you haven’t found that one MMO that you can truly love, you might want to take a stab at OSRS. With so much depth and a vast amount of content at your fingertips, you’d wonder why this game isn’t nearly as played as much in comparison to other MMOs in the genre. Considering that OSRS has a developer with a dedication to making the game as fresh as possible, you can’t go wrong with RuneScape.
OSRS Halloween 2017 event is something every player is hyped up for because nobody knows what’s in store for them. When it comes to these kinds of events, OSRS always surprises and delivers, with nothing too complacent and predictable. If you haven’t played the game, well, now’s the time. It’s even better if you get OSRS before Halloween!
