RuneScape Launches The Land Out of Time Update

runescape desperate times

RuneScape launched a giant update today which introduced an entirely new area called Anachronia, a prehistoric-style jungle island. The update is titled The Land Out of Time and introduces the following new features to the game:

The Land Out of Time introduces:

  • Big Game Hunter: High-intensity activity featuring the tracking and trapping of giant dinosaurs
  • New Slayer monsters to overcome: Defeat new creatures and the deadly fauna that populate Anachronia
  • The longest agility course in RuneScape history! Traverse around the entire landmass and boost your Agility skill, and fast travel in style
  • Set up camp: Level up your base camp, established in the ruins of a forgotten civilisation on the island, through skilling and resource gathering

Dave Osborne, Lead Designer, RuneScape, said:

“We’re really excited that after 11 years the shipbuilders of Varrock have finally finished their ship and we can set sail to The Land Out of Time. Today’s launch brings significant new ways to play in RuneScape, not least the deadly cat-and-mouse game with our dinosaurs in Big Game Hunter, and the longest agility course in Gielinor ever, which goes around the entire landmass of Anachronia. We can’t wait to begin revealing more of the mystery surrounding the island over the months ahead!”

The Anachronia zone is available to players of all levels, but certain activities require different skill requirements. Big Gaming Hunter requires 75 hunting, while the new Slayer master Lanniakea requires players to have at least level 90 in the Slayer skill.
