Jagex has announced a brand new location that’s been long-teased for Old School RuneScape for some time now. Players, welcome to Fossil Island.
Fossil Island is a brand new prehistoric island exclusive to the world of Old School RuneScape featuring adventures suited to players of all levels. On the island players will be able to discover the hidden ancient secrets from Old School’s past.
In order to get to Fossil Island players will need to build a barge and embark on a brand new quest. Once completed players will encounter new skeletal Wyverns, work on new skills, and unearth fossilised remains of Gielinor’s ancient history.
Fossil Island’s addition will also expand the museum in Varrock so players can display their unearthed fossilised remains from the various creatures found among the island.
“Fossil Island has been something of a myth in RuneScape and the community for a long time,” said Mathew Kemp, senior product manager, Old School RuneScape. “The first design documents were drafted more than a decade ago, so we were really pleased the Old School RuneScape community voted so overwhelmingly and backed its development and release into the game.”
