    For anyone thats whats to see what its going to look like go to:

    RuneScape - the massive online adventure game by Jagex Ltd

    Then on the right side of the website under recent news click read more under the article called An Image of the Future.

    The article starts like this:

    "Over the past year, we've been keeping a rather large secret. We have been working on a complete graphical rework of RuneScape, which is looking truly spectacular. There's no need to take our word for it: read the newspost to see an image of the future."

    This article is property of Jagex.

    After you see it post what you think of it.

    I think its a much needed update that if they could of, they should of done a long time ago.

    Nice, it needed better graphics for sure. Not a mind blowing change but a lot more detail.

    "The last time that the name 'Rabid Jack' was mentioned, it whispered from the lips of a zombie pirate in The Great Brain Robbery. But who, or what, is 'Rabid Jack'? The pirates aren't too forthcoming, and some are looking fearful. Can you get to the root of this mystery, even if it means serving time in 'The Rock'?"

    Development Diary: A New Look RuneScape: Part 2

    "In the first Development Diary on our graphical improvements, we showed you the results of textures, texture blending, shadows and fog. In this, the second and final Development Diary on the release, we shine a light on the other effects we have been using."

    Minimum specifications:

    To play RuneScape's new detail level you will need:

    * 1.5 GHz processor or higher
    * 256MB of RAM or more
    * 64MB 3D Graphics card, such as Nvidia(R) GeForce(TM) 3 or above

    "Additionally, your graphics card should have the latest drivers installed, to ensure the new detail level plays with no problems."

    "If you need more information on your computer's specifications or how to update your graphical drivers, visit our Tech Support Forum in the RuneScape Forums."

    "When the graphical improvement is released, you will be able to increase or decrease the number of graphical features that are activated. This will be done in your in-game 'Options' menu (the one with the spanner icon). So, any problems playing the new detail mode may be lessened by reducing the number of graphical features that are activated."

    "We would advise that your computer exceeds the above requirements, so you will be able to play the new detail mode without any issues."

    "REMINDER - The existing Low and High Detail will still be available, as the graphical update is completely optional."

    For the Development Diary with more info about this go to:

    RuneScape - the massive online adventure game by Jagex Ltd
