RuneScape has opened a door to the Dimension of the Damned. This is a new, "survive-at-all-cost", PvE competitive gaming experience. Dimension of the Damned will be available for 10 days only and see players "thrown into an alternate undead dimension where the dead are rising in droves" predicts the press release.
So, the zombies are spawning everywhere and you have to defend your brains. Here's how you do it, according to the instructions contained in the press release: "Players must get their score as high as possible over a one-hour session and can attempt multiple sessions, but only their best will be considered for their entry to the final showdown. On 28 October, the highest scoring 1,000 players will compete in a last-person-standing, 90-minute endgame to be crowned King or Queen of the Damned."
Matt Casey, Senior Product Manager, RuneScape said: "We’ve played with the idea of survival modes in RuneScape in the past, most notably with our DarkScape experiment a couple of years ago, and they’ve proved popular. However, as a purely PvE survival game mode, Dimension of the Damned is quite unlike anything we’ve released before,"
Dimension of the Damned is open to everyone, provided you show up with a brand new character. All character's skills will be maxed out during the event.
Dimension of the Damned is set in the free-to-play areas of Gielinor. The PvP option is disabled and it features a range of rewards for the players.
Now for the rewards. Every participant will receive a survivor outfit and the RIP axe; the 1,000 finalists will also win a new ‘The Damned’ title; those in the final 10 will also have their names engraved on the statue in Falador and a Dimension of the Damned pet; and the final five will have further prizes of an all-expenses paid trip to Jagex and a year’s Premier Club membership for free. The winner, in addition to bagging all previous prizes, will secure 200 million GP, lifetime RuneScape membership, a real-world zombie award, and the title ‘King/Queen of the Damned’.
