Here's an odd one: a Chinese mining company has bought Runescape developer Jagex for $300m.
Players of fantasy massively multiplayer online role-playing game Runescape can donate their in-game gold to real world charity.
The launch of the third iteration of MMO RuneScape has attracted over 300,000 new players, developer Jagex has announced.
Runescape 3 launches on 22nd July 2013, Jagex has announced.
The release of the next version of the long-running free-to-play MMO marks its transition to a browser-based game. Runescape 3 uses HTML 5 so you don't need Java or other plugins to play it.
Jagex calls Runescape 3 "the most significant update in the game's history". Expect improved graphics, longer draw distances and an upgraded camera system as the fantasy world of Gielinor enters its sixth age.
