Developers of the award-winning free-to-play MMORPG RuneScape, Jagex Games Studio, today announced that March 23rd is the official starting date for the Open Beta release of Chronicle: RuneScape Legends, their forthcoming online strategy card game.

The team at Jagex have used the wealth of information provided by the community during the Closed Beta test to enhance and improve practically every aspect of Chronicle: RuneScape Legends as the 10 week Closed Beta testing period saw over 700,000 matches played, totaling up to an impressive 7.5 million minutes worth of play.

“If the thoroughly successful closed beta formed Chronicle’s prologue, the arrival of its open beta phase, on 23rd March, really marks the beginning of chapter one. We’re introducing a host of additional content, including new Legends, a Dungeoneering mode, skilling, customisation and fresh environments to quest through.”

“Our community has been vocal in praising Chronicle’s evolutionary gameplay mechanics – it’s the only CCG that offers a huge sense of adventure as each game plays out. By playing four cards at once, the rules are very different, which means so are the strategies, deck management, and the play-by-play game experience.”
Mark Killey, Senior Producer, Chronicle: RuneScape Legends

The Open Beta will introduce brand new game modes, additional progression-based features, new customization options and brand new legends. Check out the highlights of the upcoming Open Beta build in the new trailer below:
