TopicOSRS adds the Soul Wars mini-game
Old School RuneScape has only been around since 2013, but still arrives on the 20th anniversary of its older siblings. Starting today, you can try out a brand new mini-game called Soul Wars.
"Mysterious portals have been opened in Edgeville and Ferox Enclave," announced Jagex. "Those brave enough to go through this will find themselves on Soul Island where they can play Soul Wars - a new member-only mini-game with fierce combat and territory control." Best of all, you don't have to worry about losing your gear as Soul Wars is a safe mini-game for everyone who plays it.
After completing the tutorial, you can enter the official Soul Wars competition. The goal is simple: eliminate the other team's avatar as many times as you can before the timer reaches zero. A match usually lasts 15 minutes, but may end sooner if one of the two avatar eliminations is outdated. Along the way, you can capture Soul Obelisks to reduce the power of the enemy Avatar, sacrifice Soul Fragments of defeated opponents to damage their Avatar, and destroy various barricades to create new entry routes.
This all sounds like a great addition to the OSRS mini-game list and a great way to celebrate RuneScape's 20th anniversary. There are also many great rewards to earn, such as an exclusive soul cape and an avatar pet - see the full patch notes for details.
In addition to the Soul Wars minigame, Old School RuneScape features several other anniversary events. There's a massive “talkative gnome” mission, the ending of League 2 - along with its rewards - and tons of new merch at the RuneScape Store. In the second RuneScape, players get new activities every January - just head to Lumbridge Crater to get involved. 2021 promises to be another great year for RuneScape, and we are curious to see what the team is planning next.
Of course, there are alternatives that you can use to earn gold in the game. Many players choose to buy OSRS Gold directly, which many online retailers selling OSRS Gold can do For Example RS3gold.com.
