A horde of dangers lurk within the lost underground city and brings with it the final prelude to war in RuneScape’s Elder God Wars story arc
Monday 21st June 2021, 2pm UK – Cambridge, UK – The next instalment in RuneScape’s year-long Elder God Wars story arc, the City of Senntisten, launches today and delivers a whole new map, providing players with a wealth of challenges and powerful rewards. The City of Senntisten also becomes RuneScape’s first new quest available to both PC and mobile players following the launch of the iconic PC MMORPG on iOS and Android last week, which brought full cross-platform play and progression to the game.
The Elder God Wars is a year-long epic saga that follows Ariane’s devastating vision that “war is coming” to RuneScape’s living world of Gielinor, and the City of Senntisten is the final quest ahead of that foreseen war beginning. Senntisten itself is a lost city, originally home to Zaros, now buried deep beneath the Archaeology guild gives players an entire new location to explore.
Once players have recruited their allies, it’s time to put their Archaeology skill to use and gain entrance to the city, where they fend off dark forces and begin to prepare defences. The city has dangers lurking around every corner. Players will have to exercise caution whilst exploring the claustrophobic confines of the cathedral and its surrounding areas, as they transform it into a fortress in preparation for oncoming waves of ferocious enemies.
Ryan Ward, Executive Producer, RuneScape, said:
“Today’s launch of the City of Senntisten sees the Elder God Wars arc really ignite as this is the prologue quest before the war truly begins. Over the coming months, the fate of Gielinor will be decided as players experience four fronts on the battlefield as the Elder Gods begin their assault.
“The Elder God Wars really is an epic series and we’re proud to bring it to players as RuneScape celebrates its 20th anniversary since launch. These are fantastic times for the game; we proud to see players are playing more than ever before, membership is at its highest level in six years, we’ve brought it to mobile, and welcomed so many new citizens to Gielinor. There really is no better time to play RuneScape.”
For those who succeed, there is a cornucopia of powerful rewards, most notably new Ancient Magick spells, plus XP in Slayer and Archaeology skills, an upgrade to the Pontifex Observation Ring, and more. The City of Senntisten is a member-exclusive quest and players will also need to have completed the previous quests in the arc; Azzanadra’s Quest and Battle of Monolith, as well as having their Slayer and Archaeology skills at 75 and 74, respectively.
