Jagex, creators and custodians of the iconic living game RuneScape, has announced that Archaeology, a new skill for RuneScape and one of the most powerful ever, will arrive in-game on March 30th. Skills are a key feature in RuneScape, enabling players to train and level up various abilities to shape their character, and the introduction of Archaeology will begin a major expansion with both a deeply integrated new skill and five massive new locations to explore.
RuneScape’s 28th skill has players journeying into and excavating five vast dig sites in search of artefacts and relics. Archaeology will also dive deep into the game’s lore and sets up a new and epic storyline that’s connected to the world’s original creators, the Elder Gods.
The new Archaeology skill has a 120 level cap and is available to both RuneScape members and free players as soon as it launches. Players will excavate and restore artefacts using their gathering talents. Furthermore, the discovery of ancient relics will unlock powerful perks such as adrenaline boosts, infinite run energy and much more.
Players will also discover ancient training methods for other skills. Ancient Summoning will enable them to bind the demonic slayer creatures of the world, while Ancient Invention uncovers forgotten ancient technology and blueprints that enable players to create brand new devices and perks by dissembling the artefacts found.
Who will win the race to 120 first? And more to the point, who will be the first to grab the all new skilling pet, Archie the child mummy? RuneScape’s first big update of 2020 also lays the foundation for a dramatic year ahead.
