RuneScape kicked off four months of exclusive goodies for Twitch Prime Members
RuneScape and Old School RuneScape today kicked off four months of exclusive goodies for Twitch Prime Members. As well as offering FREE membership to the record-breaking MMORPG, players will receive a host of in-game goodies to make their adventures in Gielinor all the more memorable.

As well as offering free membership to the MMORPG, players will receive a bunch of in-game goodies. As of October 3rd 2019 and running through to February 2020, the bundle features four reward drops over the next four months:

    Month #1 | Premium Currency Pack (200 RuneCoins, 15 Treasure Hunter Keys, 40 Hearts of Ice)
    Month #2 | 14 Days of FREE membership for both RuneScape and Old School
    Month #3 | Exclusive cosmetic items (plus any previous unclaimed Umbral cosmetics)
    Month #4 | 3x Umbral Chests filled with goodies (with guaranteed super-rare prizes)

Added together the freebies represent $60 of in-game value for everyone who links their Twitch Prime and RuneScape accounts.This is the third collaboration between RuneScape and Twitch. The cosmetics from these previous packs will be available to those who haven’t claimed them previously throughout the third month. And if you want to Buy Runescape Gold, visit z2u.com, a professional online in-game currency store.

The news comes after the UK Government’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) concluded its inquiry into ‘immersive and addictive technologies’. Amongst calls to ban the sale of loot boxes to children, the report also suggested that more research should be done around gaming addiction/gaming disorder and the long-term effects of gaming and protecting vulnerable players.

It cited an example where one player built up debts of more than £50,000 through spending on microtransactions in RuneScape, saying it caused ‘significant financial harm for both the player and his parents’. Earlier this year, Twitch offered a similar package, giving Twitch Prime League of Legends players four months worth of in-game goodies.
