Runescape is a MMORPG game developed by Jagex Ltd. Jagex Ltd. is situated in England, and the game is quite popular. Having been a free MMO since day 1, Runescape has come a long way in the past 15+ years, and still continues to come out with a flurry of new quests and updates, the most recent major one being the revamped combat system.
In the past, Runescape was a 3D, third person MMO like it was today, though the models and lands were extremely low res compared to today. Today, Runescape is capable of HD graphics and has some beautiful realistic models and scenery, along with realistic sound effects and ambient sounds.
As a free player, you can participate in over 15 quests and venture out to about a quarter of the entire land. You can train in just about half the ingame stats as well, such as combat, and battle it out against many monsters like barbarians, guards, even Hill giants. You can also get the basic armour, the highest combat armor for free players being Runite plate armour. You can also cast magic or use ranged attacks as well.
As a member, over 70% of the ingame mechanics, lands, and items are unlocked, and the monthly fee being cheaper than most MMO's (e.g. Star Trek Online Premium, World of Warcraft, etc.) it grants many benefits that you normally wouldn't be able to get as a free member. Also, as you pay reoccurring, the price goes down gradually.
So try the game out, make a new account, and run all the quests. If you like the game, get the membership, as it's definitely worth it!
