Runescape introduces a new in-game currency

Jagex has introduced a new in-game currency for its popular browser free-to-play MMORPG Runescape. This new currency, the Bonds, are a new ‘pay-through-play’ currency that players can use in-game to get tangible benefits, including membership. This new system will also end the plague of illegal goldsellers.

With this new system, players will have the chance to pay their game time just by playing, or gift the Bonds to other players. Each Bond costs $5, £3 or €4.25, and you can redeem them for 14 days of RuneScape membership ,8 Squeal of Fortune spins, or 160 RuneCoins. In addition multiple Bonds can be redeemed for RuneFest tickets.

The launch of Bonds for RuneScape is a really positive move, which will improve the game’s economy and give players more choice in how they get membership. We care as passionately about RuneScape as the game’s community, and are committed to laying the foundations for the next 10 years of RuneScape growth. This update is a firm step in that direction,” said Phil Mansell, Executive Producer of RuneScape. “Many players will have accrued a small fortune’s worth of GP and valuable items in-game over their years of playing RuneScape. By introducing Bonds, millions of dedicated players will now have the choice to fund their membership and other services for free through the exchange of in-game wealth for Bonds.

During RuneScape’s long and illustrious history it has remained relevant and continues to thrive based on Jagex’s ability to evolve and respond to challenges and opportunities alike. The launch of Bonds as a new ‘pay-through-play’ option for our customers is a tangible example of our commitment to ensure the game continues to do so,” explained Mark Gerhard, Chief Executive Officer at Jagex. “The key to Bonds is that there are now two paths for our players to access and enjoy every bit of content the game has to offer. No player need ever feel excluded, since they can now access everything in RuneScape by whichever payment mechanic they choose.
