RuneScape is set to return to the high seas, as they launch Pieces of Hate, the epic finale to one of the MMORPG’s longest-running stories. The finale voyage of the 13-year pirate quest series sees players dive to the depths in underwater expeditions, conquer sea beasts, and battle zombie pirates – and is released just a fortnight after RuneScape introduced deep-sea fishing for the first time in the game’s history.

As well as tying off the loose ends of the pirates’ tale, Pieces of Hate contributes to the next five years of RuneScape’s rich narratives, and immersive adventures. This new quest offers skilled players the chance to plunder its riches, including an upgrade to the Book o’Piracy, allowing players to teleport to various locations across Gielinor – and can be recharged using rum.

 

To ensure players have a “whale of a time” RuneScape has launched deep-sea fishing, an all-new offshore hub to the game. Only available to players with at least a level 68 Fishing, adventurers can cast their net to catch a variety of surprises, from jellyfish to great white sharks, and reel in fishing XP to gain rewards. Travel farther out to sea in order to bag the most impressive loot – but beware, as the danger you face there will be much greater.

RuneScape Lead Designer, Dave Osborne, praised the achievement of the questline’s timespan, “It’s really astonishing to have reached the end of the pirates’ tale after 13 years, so we’re thrilled that our players can experience the concluding events in Pieces of Hate. The team has worked hard to deliver an exciting end to the story, especially to those waiting since 2005, and we can’t wait to build on it as part of our narrative arcs for the next five years. The recent launch of deep-sea fishing has already enticed the greatest fishers from across Gielinor to experience the new activity hub; it’s a great way to level up the skill and it’s so rewarding to see our players agree!”
