Old School Runescape developer Jagex has revealed that the franchise in its 17 years of existing has made more than 800 million dollars in lifetime sales. In addition, some other stats were given about the series and its three MMO variations.

You can even log in and use your favorite PC account on the mobile version with all stats and items carrying over. The catch right now is that you must be an active member and have an active monthly subscription on your preferred account in order to enjoy the open mobile beta.

You can buy “bonds” in-game from other players in the game using the Grand Exchange market. Bonds are selling right now for just over four million gold. If you don’t have a membership or the gold to buy one, check out some news about the beta and a different upcoming mobile game called
