Video Game Updates & Patch Notes

RuneScape is getting new events in February, Valentine’s Day and more

RuneScape is preparing for an exciting month, complete with battles, romantic festivities, and opportunities to win rewards.

RuneScape is about to get wilder with the addition of the WildyWyrm to the roster of Wilderness Flash Events. Starting today, players can engage in this combat event, tackling the wyrm near the source of the River Lum. Those brave enough to face this perilous foe can expect sacks filled with wild and very wild rewards, not to mention the exclusive Wyrm Reward Gland, possibly containing Wyrm Spikes, Hearts, or Scalps.

Valentine’s Day is approaching, and the game will be celebrating the season of love with Devotion Sprites. These charming sprites will be fluttering around lodestones in Burthorpe, Varrock, Lumbridge, and Prifddinas from February 9th to 15th. By catching these sprites, players can earn a Lovely Gift Box, which may contain Heartments (Oddments for Ironmen), Valentine’s Chocolates, or the Rose Tinted Glasses.

Don’t forget about the upcoming Double XP LIVE event too. It starts on February 16th and lasts until February 26th, so you’ll have 10 full days to take advantage of the 48 hours of Double XP that are up for grabs. The best part is that you can pause the XP timer whenever you need to take a break or do something else so that you can make the most of your Double XP time. And, if you end up with any extra hours, you can trade an hour of DXP per day for credits with Nic The Trader.

The latest update of RuneScape has brought tons of fixes and improvements, and you can find the patch notes below.
