RuneFest 2010 will be taking place on August 28th, 2010. The location of where the event will be held is currently unknown, but it has been described as “a very exciting central London venue.”
The event intends to replicate the RuneScape experience, with bringing various aspects of the game to life, such as featuring themed areas for players to experience real-world RuneScape activities.
Mark Gerhard, CEO of Jagex commented;
“The team is absolutely electric with enthusiasm for this event, we’ve always wanted to do a fan celebration for our players but crucially not just any old player convention – we insisted that it would be something that was not only different from tired conventions, but an intimate, memorable and naturally incredibly fun, festive fan celebration. This is certainly going to be a landmark event and one of the best parties we’ve ever had. The team and I are really excited about meeting and celebrating our biggest fans namely our epic community, we have also got a few surprises up our sleeve that I’m certain our players will love.”
Tickets for this event will go on sale later this month. For more information on RuneFest 2010, head on over to the official site.
