Jagex Announces Closed Beta for Chronicle: RuneScape Legends
Jagex Game Studio, makers of the multi-award winning fantasy MMORPG, RuneScape, announced today that it is now accepting registrations for a closed beta of its upcoming online strategy card game, Chronicle: RunseScape Legends.
Chronicle: RuneScape Legends is an online strategy card game set within the pages of a magical book where the world of Gielinor unfolds before your eyes. This game offers a unique strategic twist on card games as players craft quests with a deck of cards, battle enemies for gold and bonuses, and then face the final challenge of player vs. player combat.
The beta, the next phase of the game's development, will begin next month, as announced by the game's lead designer, Jim Sweatman, at RuneFest - the annual fan convention for the RuneScape franchise. Fans interested in crafting their own strategy RPG experience and engaging in heroic player versus player (PvP) combat can register for an opportunity to become an integral part of the game's ongoing development.
"Since Chronicle's inception, we've been committed to iterative, agile development. Now, as we prepare for Chronicle entering closed beta next month, we're incredibly excited to open the game up to more RuneScape fans and those looking for something new to join us in creating something special," said Sweatman. "In taking the game to the next stage, and welcoming input from a much wider audience, we believe we can create a surprising and genuinely unique experience for all gamers."
