    I haven't played Runescape in a while but I think it going on a new platform will ignite my desire to play it again.

    Really hoping the mobile version will be good, it could be really great for the game and open it to lot more people.

    Here are a few screenshots I took of RS Mobile to show the interface. The Pie navbar is hidden during gameplay, but because of how taking screenshots work it pops up for those. The large black space on the left is where my phone's notch is, currently the game is set to ignore it and fill the space under it with black. The navbar hides the interface-opening buttons (the ribbon from the main game). Can't get my screen to rotate the other way for screenshots with the ribbon. As with desktop clients you can customize the icons on the ribbon so that what you want most is available. Pretty much nothing else is customizable with the interface.

    Since getting into the beta in August they haven't turned off my access like they did the May test, the reason finally announced at RuneFest today.

    Starting Monday, October 8 RuneScape mobile client is entering open beta! RuneFest Winter Reveals
    As with the OSRS open beta, it is a staged rollout, so only a limited number of slots are available at once.

    They definitely have a lot of work left but it's mostly functional. Enjoyed getting a few dailies in, will do some skilling with it too. Can't say I'd do anything risky with it at this point though. It's not as responsive as it needs to be yet, the miss taps are frustrating too. Failed my bank pin multiple times, hit all the right numbers but the game registered some of the taps elsewhere. That said, it runs solid imo and hopefully, in time it will get more optimization so it gets smoother and can scale down the phone tiers.

    It's a start, it's rough but it works. Very excited to see where this goes.

    Quick update for reference. OSRS Mobile released a few days ago for iOS and Android. It's now live with no invite or membership needed. RuneScape Mobile is still in beta on Android, can join via the Play Store, if sign-ups are closed just check back another day. Haven't seen any new word on the iOS beta.

    It’s fun, still a grind though. It’s cool how it’s one IAP is the memberships. $99 for a whole year would sound good if they lessened the grind. Just got to Varrock last night and trying to remember where the smithing/mining skill quest npc is so I can start mining coal and making certificates to sell.

    You mean the runescape that came after is coming to mobile, too?! :O

    On Android, it's around 15MB download for the app itself and then the game seems to download stuff as needed as you play, mine is up to 427MB, not sure what it maxes out at.

    I checked this recently but it seems to still be in beta and I'm too lazy to join.

    RuneScape Mobile is indeed still in beta (Android only). Old School Mobile is released on iOS and Android though.
