Jagex today announced an exciting weekend ahead for fans of love and war with the revealing of tomorrows upcoming event in Block N Load. The event marks the launch of the new 8-bit inspired Valentine’s Day map, Love Hurts, alongside the debut of the highly anticipated ranked mode. The ranked mode is already available in-game but there’s no time to waste as the current schedule will see the ranked mode open to all level 20 players until February 15th.

The limited access to ranked mode marks the first opportunity for the competitive players in Block N Load to come together and battle it out to reach a spot in the top tiered rankings – also allowing the less competitive players to enjoy ranked at a later date once the more PvP enthusiasts of the community are already tiered away.

“Naturally, there’s a lot of love in the team for Block N Load, so we wanted to share some of that with our fantastic band of beta players. The limited time availability of the game’s ranked mode will give us valuable feedback and insight into where we can improve things ahead of launch. We are eager to receive as many opinions and thoughts from players following their experience with the new mode this weekend.”

“We’re also looking forward to seeing relationships tested to breaking point as teams face off in the new Love Hurts arena,” he continued. “We think we’re onto a win-win situation visually. If you like your Valentine’s a bit saccharine, then all well and good. If not… well, you can always go for some explosive remodelling!”David Solari, Vice President of Block N Load
