RuneScape: The First 20 Years

RuneScape: The First 20 Years

We’ve partnered with Dark Horse Comics to bring you RuneScape: The First 20 Years, a lavishly illustrated, full-colour, hardcover book filled with insider info about the best game in the world – this one!

Dark Horse recruited Alex Calvin, the founder of PCGamesInsider, to interview all your favourite J-Mods, past and present. They also pored over 20 years’ worth of illustrations, concept art and various other bits and bobs to create an illustrated history of the development of the games over the past 20 years, covering both RuneScape and its precocious younger sibling, Old School RuneScape.




Check out below for a sneak peek at some of the 224 full colour pages in the book.

The main edition comes with a swanky red cover and will be available in all good bookstores in the US on November 9th and worldwide on November 11th. To snag a copy on release, pre-order now through Amazon (US, UK, CA), Barnes and Noble (US), McnallyRobinson.com (Canada), or your friendly local bookstore! You can also pre-order in Australia via this link or in New Zealand via this one.

US based 'Scapers will be able to get their hands on a copy from their local comic book stores slightly earlier, from October 20th.

Or, for our most dedicated fans, we have the Deluxe Edition, featuring a black cover with foil treatments - very fancy! The final design is revealed below and comes with gilded page edges, a card slipcase, a ribbon bookmark and a hard-backed folio containing two archive-quality art prints.




The first folio print is an iconic Tim and Crunchy illustration. The second, which has just been revealed, is a battle scene from the archives featuring General Graardor. Created in 2012 for a series of unused loading screens depicting the God Wars, the note on the illustration reads “The Lesser Gods opened gates between Gielinor and other neighbouring realms and brought into it new races to fight their battles”.

Both editions are currently sold out on the Official Merch Store. Pre-orders already placed on the store for both the Deluxe and Main Retail Edition should start leaving UK and US warehouses on October 19th.

Keep an eye out for more details – including stock updates and more sample pages - over the coming weeks!

Note: Release dates have moved from mid October due to ongoing global shipping issues, which have caused delays with key shipments for Dark Horse over the past few weeks.
