Jagex Announces RuneFest 2019 Will Be Jurassic Themed

Jagex has announced this year’s theme for RuneFest this year, as it will be going hand-in-hand with the latest RuneScape update and be Jurassic themed. Aside from the announcement video below, there really wasn’t much to the reveal as they have nothing set up yet for the October convention. We have some details below of what the convention will actually entail, but we’re probably not going to see much for the look until September.

Taking place at the Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre, just outside London, UK, RuneFest attracts thousands of attendees and 2019 is set to be the biggest to date. The celebrations begin on the evening of 4th October with The Golden Gnomes Awards Night – a red-carpet evening that recognises the very best of the RuneScape and Old School RuneScape community’s achievements and names its champions.

The next day, attendees can look forward to a whole host of activities to take part in, including:

  • Huge game-changing announcements on the main stage.

  • Talks and meetups with RuneScape ‘Jmod’ developers

  • Hands-on time with new, exclusive RuneScape and OSRS content

  • Community and developer-led panels,

  • A large and dedicated LAN area

  • An art area for meeting the creative teams, and more
