11 years in, Old School RuneScape’s toaster graphics are about to look better than ever

The Old School RuneScape look is iconic: Just a clatter of vaguely humanoid models running around a landscape of flat textures, accomplishing feats of grandiose heroism and sheer lunacy all the while. It’s a faithful reproduction (to my eyes, anyway) of original RuneScape’s graphics from the 2000s, a stunning example of how much you can do with six polygons and a dream.

But brace yourself, because those polygons are about to look better than ever. OSRS developer Jagex has announced the venerable MMO is getting an official HD mode, bringing a suite of lighting, effects, and texture improvements to the game later this year.
