RuneScape Kingdoms: Shadow Of Elvarg To Launch Kickstarter

Steamforged Games and Jagex revealed that they'll be launching a Kickstarter at the end of May for RuneScape Kingdoms: Shadow Of Elvarg. The crowdfunding effort will kick off on May 31st, but before that happens, they revealed all of the tiers for pledges that will be active once it starts. We have the info and some of the images below of what you can expect to get if you decide to jump into the campaign. No word as to when the game might see the light of day, but based on other titles of the same size and goals, we're guessing Early 2023 is going to be the easiest you see it (if they're not already in production).

Players will explore the kingdoms of Asgarnia and Misthalin as an open world over multiple sessions, embarking on quests and side quests, levelling up skills, and encountering iconic bosses like TzTok-Jad and Elvarg. More kingdoms and quests will be added by four expansions, each one themed around a different boss and including iconic video game NPC's, such as the infamous Wise Old Man.
