After 15 years Runescape has finally rolled out a new games engine in the form of the new RuneScape NXT game client, which brings with it improved performance and graphics for players to enjoy.
As you can see in the video below the new RuneScape NXT engine provides enhanced graphics together with a wider field of view for players as well as higher resolution textures, water effects and improved lighting to anew a few others.
The RuneScape NXT client was released yesterday and is now available to download and use via the official Runescape website, which can be accessed by the link below. RuneScape explains :
NXT is designed to get the most out of your hardware, looks fantastic and runs smoothly across the board. We’ve tested NXT extensively, but with millions of system configurations out there, it’s inevitable that a few blips will slip through. If you have any issues, don’t worry – just click the flag icon on the in-game chat interface or visit the forums, and describe the problem along with your PC spec. The team will get you up and running as soon as possible. Finally, we couldn’t have got here without the legion of testers who logged in during our recent beta weekends, showering us with valuable feedback and digging out pesky bugs. Huge thanks to you all!
World-weary beast of burden Benedict Encumberyak is missing some important items, and needs you to visit various picturesque Gielinor locales to track them down – perfect for drinking in those glorious NXT visuals. There’ll be eight of these accessible to free players, and eight more that are for members only. You’ll get a small XP lamp for every four you collect, and a large XP lamp for collecting either all of the free items or all of the members’ items. Log in using the NXT Client, then speak to Benedict by the Burthorpe or Prifddinas lodestone to get started.
